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.

McTapps (4064) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2013
Almost perfect nose of a delicious and aromatic IPA / hops, just missed that last percent of deepness. Taste of dry, aromatic and fresh hops, coriander, white pepper, apples, cloves and green plums. Floral and spicy hints. The finish is very dry and quite bitter, but this beer is just so quaffable and nice to drink. A great change which I enjoyed a lot.

Once again a wonderful, wonderful IPA full of life, hops and bit citrus. So easy to drink and still with a big hoppy body. Fresh citrus with some vanilla in the back and even some sugar in the end. Very nice.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2013
Flaske: Orange ravfarvet øl med et stort flot skumhoved. Duften er humlet med en del blomster og en tand citrus, bitter. Smagen er velafbalanceret med en fin bitterhed ovenpå citrus og blomster, god karboneret mundfylde

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2011
Tap at 16 Tons during the Rob Widmer event. This is the first beer brewed (at Widmer)by former Walking Man head brewer Jacob Leonard. Light orange pour, slightly cloudy with a white head. Smells of grapefruit, apricots, peaches and biscuit malt. Taste throws a lot of pine in with those same citrus and biscuit notes. A pretty tasty beer, but not nearly enough to convince me that Leonard shouldn’t have stayed at Walking Man.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 Less obnoxious than the 114 or whatever the first rotator was, in fact quite good! UPDATE: They brought it back!...first "Rotator" to be rereleased! Even better than I remember it, love it....so glad it’s back! Stock up while you can!

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Pint glass. The color is a clear copper-amber with a finger of foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell has some nice earthy hoppy aroma with some The taste is pretty hoppy at first with some earthy notes that hold a good sized bitterness that also a good sized malt presence as well. The hits with a taste of piney hops at the end and makes this comes back to the bitterness. The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkable feel to a beer that has a good amount of hops. It does have a smooth side and it make this beer surprising in how well this drinks.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium light-beige head with decent retention; leaves cobwebby lacework. Aroma is peachy, citrus powder drink, honeysuckle. Taste is bitter with sweet edges. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is sticky. Not bad. 3.7 seems to be my number lately!

Flavor is citrusy and sweet with a light grassy character and light zesty bitterness. Light bodied and dry with a light bitterness.
