A gluten free pale that has citrus notes and is light bodied. You will find no sorghum in this beer, but rather organic rices, nectars, and north american hops.

Pale Yellow Color, Medium Bubbly Head Dissipates Quickly, No Lacing. Cider or Champaign Like Aroma that reminds me of Apples. Tastes like champaign, apples, citrus, light bitter ending. Waaaay over carbonated, very hard to drink until. Have to wait for fizz go away, makes it easier to drink. Thank God, This one has no Sorghum in it, so it is actually drinkable and somewhat enjoyable Glutten Free option for people that need it. OK for what it is...

On draft pour. Yellow color with a light head. Light hop aroma and light hop taste. Not bad for a gluten free. Also a little grainy

Poured from a 12 ounce can provided graciously by bytemesis. Thanks! Pours a pale gold with a white head of foam that has decent retention. The aroma is grassy and sort of resinous. Taste is drily bitter with a weird sweetness on the verge of tartness. Kinda soapy. I donít know how I really feel about this one. Itís not really doing it for me.

Can, labeled "Fox Tail Gluten Free Ale", 5.0% ABV. Pours a clear, fizzy light yellow with a white head that disappears right away. Aroma is semi-sweet, cider-like, and lightly tart, with a bit of floral hop. Flavor is bitter, almost medicinal, with a bit of syrupy sweetness that doesnít quite fit into the mix. Bitter finish. Actually, quite decent for a gluten-free beer. Iím giving this some extra points in the overall score because I appreciate gluten-free beer options, but I would never choose to drink this over a gluten-rich beer.

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...

Although there is a decent amount of hops in the finish that impart a certain punch and bitterness, it is the upfront flavor which is rather odd in this one. I have not been a fan of any of the sorghum beers I have tried and this one is not an exception, though the use of hops has probably made it the best so far.

Aroma is citrus, vegetables and an odd note in the malts probably due to the sorghum. The flavor is citrus, vegetables/celery/spices, malts and a mild bitterness in the finish.

douglas88 (6332) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 12 ounce can. Pours a clear fizzy golden color. A ripe apple nose. A rich apple and citrus flavor, sour at times, glue, just ok. A bit odd as most gluten free brews tend to be.

man...hard to find accurate info on this one. advertised as an ipa at the store, but it says 5% on the bottle, more an APA abv. Fox Tail on RB and BA are for an 8.1% IIPA, which this is definitely not. So, went with what the brewers website says. All said and done, itís not bad at all for what it is, and ok overal. kinda weird tasting to tell you the truth. soapy, perfumy hops in the aroma and flavor. i donít know if itís the lack of malt, or if this is sorachi ace hops. feel is light and tingly, which kinda works for the style. looks light hazy yellow. probably the 2nd best gluten-free Iíve had, not that that is saying much, and also the 2nd best JJ beer, which says even less...but still"
