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 I’ve 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 couldn’t 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 I’ve had, but it was very bitter and dry-hopped. Some light fruit tastes but mainly a dry and very bitter note.
