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.

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.

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?

(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.

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 it’s own good and I did not finish my glass.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor on our way to RBSG. Pours a hazed golden yellow with no head. Light funk, soft and sweet. Lightly tart with some rough earthy hops. Lingering long tannic bitterness with some quinine notes. Interesting.

Nice, lemony citrus aroma, but with a medicinal underpinning. The flavor is almost repugnant. Medicinal, rubbing alcohol. Really doesn’t work, though I guess it might be ok for a gluten free.

Tap at Ann Arbor. Has as odd graininess I’ve noticed in the other gluten free beers here. Some fresh PNW hops. Koji. Mixed of grain mush flavor, really not my thing. Bitterness in the finish. I can’t get over the "gluten free" stuff here.
