COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Delicious Belgian-style IPA, brewed with chestnuts, tapioca, sorghum, agave nectar and loads of the freshest hops money can buy. Fermented with two yeasts for a layered complexity, and dry hopped for a spicy mouthful of fun.

Clear yellow, no head. A weird nose...somewhere between medicinal and chemical. Sort of a soapy flavor on an otherwise clean palate. Not a fan.

On tap at the JP cafe in Ann Arbor. Sparse notes: clear yellow, grain mash, cereal, grain again, straw, soap, citrus, metallic, eh - 5.8

[4099-20111112] Tap. Strange cardboard house yeast aroma has almost a garage-like note. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter grainy malt flavour has a hint of the house yeast infused with orange punch. Medium body. Good, and great for a gluten-free, no wonder it’s been winning awards. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3

Tap @ Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Slightly hazy, golden appearance with a white head. Somewhat spicy, piney hoppy aroma. Sweet pale malty, very spicy, sappy hoppy flavor.

2011-11-12. Crisp golden yellow body with a nice white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is odd, grainy, bit different, mild bitterness grows in the finish with a light kiss of grass, and tropical fruit. Bit of chestnut like character? Unusual profile. 6+ Aroma is quite floral, fruity, lightly perfumey. 6+ Average palate. Interesting, just okay overall but probably the best gluten free beer I have had. On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Cafe, Ann Arbor

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Aromas of nettles spice hops Grapefruit sour. Pours real clear, light yellow. Not much head. Complex, sour flavours - some hops and agave is apparent. Finishes agave crazy! Innovative unique beer.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 30, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Odd spice and earth aroma. Florally pungent. Flavors are odd and off-putting to me. Strong bitterness lacks any sugar backbone. These kitchen sink beers need more thought.

There were a number of very inviting taps at the Jolly Pumpkin Cafe. Eventually after a few samples I settled on this relaxed beer. I would have loved to try some of the others but time was short. If you want to start light order a pint of this.

Aroma / Appearance - The robust bronze body was decorated by a thick cottony head. Cotton candy, chestnuts, and mild spices spark the senses. The total impression is light and easy on the senses.

Flavor / Palate - Cotton candy, thyme, and yeast were a refreshing sensation. Dry chestnuts complement a soft finish along with nectarines. For a gluten free beer it was better than my expectations. This is one of those perfect session beers.

Enjoyed on tap at JP Ann Arbour. Yellow coloured body is not exceptional. The carbonation is above average, it is a below average bodied beer. A ittle sour and sweet, though the hops are there.
