101. Widmer Brothers Rotator IPA: Falconer’s IPA
This is a much better representation of an American IPA than the Redhook Longhammer I reviewed last week. This has a great fruity aroma, solid white head and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Taste has the hops you would expect from an IPA but also a bit of citrus and a fair amount of malts in there to balance it out. Easy to drink even at 7% ABV and if you a good IPA give this one a try.
Pros: Color, aroma, balanced
Alcohol Content: 7.0% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 65

Brewers Description: Glen Falconer was passionate about friends, family and great IPAs. So in tribute we’ve created an IPA worth of this master brewr. 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 have approved. Proceeds from the sale of Falconer’s Flight Hops go to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation prociding 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.
