Widmer Brothers "Falconers IPA" (Rotator Series)
Widmer Brothers Brewing Company - Portland, Oregon USA
IPA (ABV 7%)-(IBU 70)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a medium copper orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that had great retention, lasting throughout with some great sticky lacing.

The aroma was of caramel malts, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and grapefruit.

The taste was at first sweetly malty with a huge note of caramel and then slowly became nice and hoppy with a note of citrus (grapefruit) at the end. The flavor lasted a very long time proceeding the swallow with a good strong hoppy taste left on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.

Overall an IPA that started mildly malty and a tad sweet but ended BIG in the hops department...
