2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Malt & Vine. Looks like itís been changed a bit - can puts ABV at 5.0%. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Nice aroma of resin hop. Near med body. Wow. Itís kind of like hopped soda. It is bitter and astringent. Thereís a good dose of hop. And now I fully realize how important it is that hop have a malt backbone to stretch out on. Gotta be the best gluten free I can recall. But itís sure not my desert island ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale yellow color, almost a bit fluorescent, with a finger of white head. Nose is surprisingly hop forward. Orange peel and lemon zest give a strong aroma to the beer and it is followed by a bit of cracker and rice. Fairly sweet, too. Just a touch of grass and straw. The flavor is a touch bitter with some grass and citrus peel hop notes. As with the nose, a bit on the sweet side. Some cracker and rice, a bit of candied lemon peel, and a crisp finish. One of the better gluten free beers out there, Iíd imagine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Easily the best gluten free beer that Iíve had! Pours with a very pale, very clear straw hued body with a massive foamy white head that slowly fades. Aromas are hoppy, herbal, citrus, lightly sweet pineapple, guava, medium esters. Otherwise pretty clean with a bit of a CO2 bite. Flavors are very clean, strawberry, low guava, citrus, dry, lightly sour. Clean, medium bitter, neutral-dry balance. Fizzy, seltzer, somewhat bland, but easy to drink. Both the best gluten free beer that Iíve had and the best (albeit limited) beer that Iíve had from this brewery. Grassy finish. Lively bubbles, very thin and very dry. Not half bad!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. can. Pours "1 hour after a multi-vitamin urine yellow" with fizzy fast-dissipating white head and spare carbonation. Nose is hopcitrus, I get some apple in this, and sorghum. Tastes of citrus, I get lemon, some ricey nectary organic notes, hops, and a very heavily carbonated finish. This one is decent for a GF beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can pours clear gold with thirty second near white head of weak foam. The aroma drags up modest levels of sugary sweetness, a dry white paper earthy note and a couple of slivers of citrus fruit. As it warms it gets more Malt Liquor like with slightly chemical and pear to apple fruitiness. The taste has bitter lemon to lime to grapefruit sort of citrus notes that have a vague sort of sugary backbone to them helping to keep them grounded. The hop notes seem to stray into a bit of hop leaf astringency near midway and then again into the finish and that keeps the flavor from coming together in a cohesive manner. I think if this was a little closer to 40F serving temp and I was outside in the heat this might be a suitable choice.

Bottle, grabbed by Parksy by mistake! Of course it was a mistake-- who in their right mind would willingly choose a gluten-free beer? After having their aweful wheat beer, I was wincing as I tried this one... But it actually wasnít too bad. Thereís a good blast of citrus hops to distract from the fact that there is virtually no malt structure to be found. Woefully thin. As a gluten-free beer, its not a bad offering. As a beer on its own terms, itís pretty weak.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: † Very pale straw, clear, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. † Faint champagne yeastie like nose, touch of candied citrus peel... just a touch. † Tastes like a Pale Ale Mimosa, Champagne with a light Pale Ale. † Citrus is very minor. † Given its Gluten free its not too bad, and better than most. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Very little bitterness on the exit. † Seems to mainly be this Champagne like water, with a squeeze of orange juice in it. † Not an IPA would have again, but for Gluten free I at least didnt pour it out.   Lingering sweet lemon and lime.   A bit odd...

Bottle. Gotta be the best gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy grassy-ish aroma with some spicy hoppy notes. The flavor has lemony and grassy hops, a spritzy mouthfeel, and light apple/white grapes. I actually quite liked this.
