For the next installment in its Rotator IPA series, Widmer Brothers Brewing is bringing back one of its most popular limited edition ales: Falconer’s India Pale Ale. Brewed and introduced for the first time a year ago, Falconer’s IPA is the only Rotator IPA series beer to make a comeback thus far and is the sixth release to date. Crafted with a proprietary Falconer’s Flight™ hop blend that honors the late Glen Hay Falconer, Falconer’s IPA is a testament to the brewer’s legacy and dedication to supporting aspiring brewers.

Widmer Brothers Brewing – Falconer’s IPA is a bright, moderately bitter IPA with stone fruit aromas and a strong malt backbone. The IPA is brewed with Falconer’s Flight™ hop created by Hopunion, LLC, a Pacific Northwest-based company with hop growers in Oregon and Washington. Falconer’s Flight™ hop includes a blend of many of the Northwest’s most unique hop varieties. Each hop was hand selected for its superior aromatic qualities, imparting distinct tropical, citrus, floral, lemon and grapefruit tones.
