This varietal is exclusive to Hop Union and was developed in honor of American Northwest brewing legend Glen Hay Falconer and released in 2010. Falconer’s Flight serves as a dual purpose brewing ingredient, imparting both a bittering quality and fruity aromatics to regional styles like Northwest style IPAs and Pale Ales.
Falconer’s Flight will generally have an alpha acid range from about 9% to 12%. If used as a flavor and aroma hop, your brew will also benefit from the light citrus, grapefruit, and tropical fruit flavors. If in need of a substitution for Falconer’s Flight, try Cascade or Columbus hops instead. Taste this sought-after hop in brews like Falconer’s Flight APA from Sly Fox Brewing Co.
