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 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.

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 doesnít work, though I guess it might be ok for a gluten free.

Tap at Ann Arbor. Has as odd graininess Iíve 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 canít get over the "gluten free" stuff here.

This poured a hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma was loads of alcohol, like watered down moonshine and nothing else. Flavor was like watered down moonshine too. not really sure what this was uspposed to be but whatever it was, it was way off.

On tap at the cafe. Golden, decent head, clings a tad. Aroma is all over the place hints of citrus with tons of spicy notes? Canít really pinpoint, but not digging it. Flavor much the same, decent citrus character, unappealing yeast esters and tons of soap. Just not my thing.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2010
On tap at the Ann Arbor brewpub. Cloudy yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma was lightly spicy, a little Belgian funk and some odd floral metallic notes. Flavor was similar. The beer didnít quite ring true and had some off flavors. Not great.

Sample at the Jolly Pumpkin Cafe in Ann Arbor. Pours clear gold with no head. Aroma of soap and messy hops. Flavor is of apple and soap. Blech!

When i saw that JP had a gluten free beer I was pretty excited. After all, if anybody can make a good gluten free beer it would be them. But this fell pretty short for me. Had a good dose of hops, aroma was full of citrus hops. Taste was super sharp and pungent bitter hops, picked up some spice and the finish was super dry. Respect the effort here, but this was for sure my least favorite of the night. Although their pizza and other awesome beers more than made up for it.
