2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Portland location. Pours a clear amber color. A sweet odd glue-like nose that I always get from Sorghum. The flavor is the same; earthy and spicy sorghum, light candies. Decent. Not my thing though.

Tap at Deschutes in Bend. Pours a clear orange, medium foam with webby lacing. Nose is crazy strawberry chewing gum, strawberry mint. Taste is spicy mint tea, big sugar. Herbal tea finish. Not so bad.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at OBE. Pours hazy golden amber with a slight white head. Mild aromas. Sort of cooked something. Med body. Flavor is citrus. Backbone definitely not malt. Itís hoppy. Certainly one of the better GFs I can recall having.

On tap at Portland store. Awful. This is one of the worst beers ever. Buttery taste. My mouth has been raped.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the Bend Brewpub. I am rating the "Deschutes Gluten Free NWPA #23" listed as "A hop-forward Northwest Pale Ale made of 100% gluten free ingredients: Brown Rice, Sorghum, and Dark Candy Sugar. Hopped with Nugget, Centennial, Cascade, and Citra hops for a NW gluten-free experience. Batch #23" at 6.2% with 65 IBUs. I wasnít expecting much and ordered this for a friend. It was actually rather decent -- the rice and malt could be identified, but it was quite drinkable, with decent hop bitterness, so much so that i ordered one for myself. Something different, certainly. Thanks Deschutes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at the BP Light amber with a small off-white head. Lots of citrusy hop aroma and a pleasant citrus hoppy flavor. Very bright crisp and flavorful. I was rather dubious about this barley free beer but it was quite good.
