COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA uses Horizon, Willamette, Cascade and Meridian hops for a piney, citrusy, truly northwest IPA bitterness, flavor and aroma. The body to support these hops comes from our pale roasted chestnuts, certified GF oats, and organic tapioca maltodextrin. We plan to release a few different IPAs throughout the year featuring different hops to keep things interesting.

This gluten free IPA tastes just like IPAís I used to drink that were made from barley. I did a double take to make sure it was truly gluten free. A plus for those who need to be gluten free - it is a dedicated gluten-free facility, which for me, is a must.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured gold with a white head that faded quickly and left light lacing. Nose off citrus. Medium in body. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is big on citrus and some honey. Some nuts appear as ti warms. Lot of bitterness in flavor and finish. Another good GF beer from the brewer.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer poured hazy golden and had a fairly big white head. That foam left blotches of lacing as it fell. Some citrus in the aroma with a little caramel. The taste was mostly citrus with a hint of honey. Malts were definitely secondary. Something was tasted under that and perhaps it was the sorghum. A moderate bitterness that was persistent. This was better than most gluten free beers.

Bottled: unk Golden and has etched surface of fine whites. Smelled nice and hoppy in the bottle, but as soon as it hit the glass an overbearing plastic smell, some body odor hops and a little rice. Taste is sharp, kinda chemical, plastic, some soyonnaise, not good. Medium bodied with tight, slightly hi carb and a dry finish. Hopefully this is just old, because if itís like this fresh, this ainít my cup of tea.

Bookseeb (116) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Appearance is light orange amber in color supporting a healthy head leaving fair lace. Smell has a medicinal aroma with light hops in the back. Taste has the sweetness of the base ingredients balanced with the hops. Mouthfeel is light medium with good carbonation. Considering that itís GF and my first, I have nothing to relate it to, but itís not to bad.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2013
4-6-13, Poured from bomber: This is a light bodied India Pale Ale, delicate if not dainty hops, slight bitter finish. Although considering it is gluten free- a good beer. 6.5 BD; 7.5 KevMar light like a pils; 7.5 Joek bitter

robforbes (2073) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2013
pours a semi-hazy light yellow with a very small white head, and okay lacing. smell is of fruit juice, some citrus, and grass. taste is a bit watery, citrus, some hops, with a strange texture and flavor. ends a little bitter and thick on the tongue.

michaelinwa (591) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Golden pour, substantial head, and a pretty nice hop aroma with pine and floral notes. So nice to breath in an IPA after so long. Taste is hop forward, and bitterness is medium high. Grain flavors are in the background, appropriate for the style. Hop character is uninteresting and seems confused or unfocused. Finish is bitter, and too harsh on the palate. Just too bitter for me; Iíd go for the pale ale instead, which actually leans more towards an IPA anyway.

650ml bottle. Hazy golden pout large fizzy off-white head. Smell is vegetal, crisp herbal grassiness, slight hint of fruits. The flavor has a medium to lo bitterness, sorghum, medicinal, citrus pith, fruitiness. The sorghum is hard to overcome but this drowns it better than most.

Iíve been gluten-free for about a year now, having been a very avid beer drinker, and this is the first thing Iíve had since then that tastes like something more than a good try. It tastes like real beer, and Iíll rate it as such. Pours dark gold, slightly cloudy, champagne-like carbonation, thin layer of white foam. Aroma is deeply resinous, some citrus, a bit of a sharp vegetal aroma at the borders that fades with time, a brush of floral aromas develops after a while in the glass. Taste is slight sweetness, a bit savory maltiness/earthiness, and a bright, assertive bitterness. Medium body with slightly oily mouthfeel. The only ways this differs from a malt beer are subtle - the faint but sharp vegetal component in the aroma (something Iíve noticed in Harvesterís other beers), a lack of head (which matters little), and a slightly oily mouthfeel - probably from the use of oats. It lacks the thin, cidery character of most gf beers. Overall, this is in my opinion the beer for gluten-sensitive and celiac beer lovers to try. Decidedly an American IPA, incidentally gluten-free.

Bottle:   Dirty straw, very hazy, moderate fizzy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Nice hoppy nose, a little mealy but otherwise fairly hoppy.   For a Gluten free IPA it seems pretty crisp on the nose.   Minor graininess and earthy aspect up front.   A bit pithy, a little earthy and grainy on the backside.   Not as offensive as I thought it would be for a Gluten free example.   Has this earthy pith flavor from start to finish.   Not a sweet example, but lets just say its an earthy type IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a slight earthy/grainy aspect, but it also has a pithy/citrusy aspect.   Its not a sweet or fruity example, not floral, but for a Gluten free beer its not bad.   Problem is I had a great IPA a few hours before this that totally skews my thoughts on IPA.   Given that, its not bad.   Better than I expected.
