COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Glen Falconer was passionate about friends, familly, and great IPAs. So in tribute, we’ve created an IPA worth of this master brewer. Made with Falconer’s Flight hops from Hopunion, LLC, a blend named for Glen himself. The result is a bright, moderately bitter IPA with stonefruit aromas and a strong malt backbone. We think Glen would approved. Proceeds from the sale of Falconer’s Flight hops go to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, providing scholarships to professional and aspiring brewers. In addition, Widmer Brothers Brewing is making a donation to grant two additional scholarships. Learn more at www.glenfalconerfoundation.org. Prost! To true hop heads.

Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy diminishing white 2 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are pine, citrus fruits and sweet pale, crystal caramel malts. Taste are sweet sublime malts with mild orange, pine, grapefruit, lemon, and melon hops. Yummy. Palate was creamy soft CO2 with meduim body, then lasting slightly bitter,malty sweet clean soft finish. A good rotator IPA from Widmer...

Not the best. Do not intend to buy a six pack, but would try again just to be certain!

Good, but not great. Not remarkable, but drinkable. Nice grassy hop aroma, good malt/hop balance.

Sampled on 9/26/2011. This IPA pours a medium to deep orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy, with a touch of melon. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral. Medium bitterness with a nice hop bite. Decent carbonation. A nice balanced IPA, no big hops, no big malts, just a nice IPA with a nice hop bite. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, but lingering.

On draft at spacebar. Pours a deep clear deep copper with a white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Orange zest and sweet malts. Not your typical IPA. Very nice.

chickenflea (336) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Beer pours a bright copper color, slightly cloudy and a small foamy head. Aroma is right on: caramel malts with apricot, vanillla and bread. A wonderful sticky mouthfeel - lots of body. Moderate carbonation. Sweet like an imperial. Hops like grapefruit. Very bitter finish. This is a bid IPA. Very satisfying. Everything one looks for in an IPA is here. Might be the best Widmer brew I have tried to date.

I do like a good Pacific IPA and I’ve been looking forward to this one for days. Rich golden amber in colour with a coarse cream coloured head with a greenish tinge. Classic American IPA aromas of spruce, amber malts, redwood bark, grassiness and abundant and fragrant hops. Perfect. The flavour is bang on with the massive astringent hoppy burst I was expecting. This beer is stereotypical and just what I wanted. Glen Falconer should be proud that his beer is interpreted as the classic American IPA half a world away. Gorgeous.
