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 @ 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.

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?

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.

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.

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

crossovert (6928) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
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. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-01-2010 04:24:51

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.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 6, 2009
On tap. Poured a clear bronze with an egg shell head. Aroma was full of citrus hops with a bit of underlying spices. Earthy hops were the main flavor I picked up with a bit of spice and yeast underneath.

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 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.
