2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate golden-orange color with a white head. The nose is some light floral hops along with a bit of yeast and some mild malt. Not too much of a hop character, but the hop and yeast components meld decently. However, nothing terribly special. Decent feel and drinks well enough, but not one of the better beers I grabbed at the brewpub.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this on tap at Jolly Pumpkin...Pours a yellow yeasty color, light two finger head, nothing of note...The taste and the aroma are both just weird, lots of yeast with a terrible sour finish, bad esters. This is not a very appealing beer, I would not recommend trying it out.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this at the brewpub in Ann Arbor.
The lights were dark but it appeared a clear light peach color with minimal head.
Smell was greatly hoppy and fresh.
It was very hoppy, but balanced in taste. THe hops were really spicy, but with a hit of grapefruit peel. There was a slight sourness underneath. It was crisp and clean.
This is a great beer, not sure how limited it will be but I recommend getting it while it is there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub in Ann Arbor. Very pale golden-straw pour. The nose is composed mostly of a fresh hoppy aroma. Lemon peel and lemon grass with a bright fruity aroma. A little bit of really intense fruitiness along with some light dry spiciness. Lemony and tropical. The flavour is actually very hoppy... sort of a combination of Sorachi Ace and Citra with a very soft bitterness. Very lean light malt with a nice citrusy hoppiness. Fresh an quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy and floral nose with a touch of cotton candy. The taste is tart lemons, some honey and dry grainy malts. Really nice beer and one that I want to try again in a non-fest situation. Definitely the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had... easily.

On tap at JP in Ann Arbor. Poured medium and clear gold color with no head. Aromas and tastes of nuts and some fruitiness. Herbal. Had a herbal after taste I couldnít quite put my finger on - maybe the agave?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draft @ Jolly Pumpkin Cafe and Brewery - Ann Arbor, MI) Golden pour with a fizzy white head. Slightly spicy aroma with a mildly sweet and fruity aroma. I was expecting it to be sweet like other gluten-free beers Iíve had, but it was very bitter and dry-hopped. Some light fruit tastes but mainly a dry and very bitter note.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap in Ann Arbor (Gluten Free IPA): Golden hue with a frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of faint wild yeast and funk, tropical and agave fruits, herbal hops, some strange vanilla pudding like vapours. The taste is quite strange and unique as well, reminds me a over hopped, spicy and fruity farmhouse ale, The hop bitterness seems to clash with the base malts and slight funky character. Unlike say the Luciernaga where the hops and funk play well together this beer seems in conflict. Also there is a strange milky or gummy tone that as I now read the description must be from the tapioca and sorghum. This is just too weird for itís own good and I did not finish my glass.
