From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Some yeast aroma. Golden coloured and yeasty with a little bitterness in a crisp and dry finish.

The aroma has hops and grains with a slight yeast quality. The appearance is straw gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable for the gluten free crowd.

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"

OMG! Aroma in a gluten-free beer! This has a nice fresh hop aroma. Almost no color. This is quite strainy. A nice dry finish, that is really better than the body of the beer. Certainly No.1 or 2 in gluten-free beers Iíve had, but...donít think Iíd buy it again.

My wife thought this was terrible, but I found it drinkable and one of the best Gluten-free beers Iíve had to date. Not much aroma. Appearance is very thin and clear. The flavor is dry and crisp like a pilsener.

12oz bottle thanks to here4beer. Pours a hazy bright straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma reminds me of peach gummy rings. Taste is sweet fruits into medicinal alcohol burn. Iíve tasted far worse gluten-free beers. If I couldnít have gluten this might be an alright choice.

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.

Can. Pours fizzy yellow amber with a small white head that dissipates almost immediately with minimal lacing and large bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of corn syrup and pine hops. Flavor is medium sweet, honey or corn syrup, with spruce, pine, and a bit of spiciness. Light bitter finish. Medium body and fizzy in the mouth, sweetish aftertaste.

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.

12oz can on the Vegas strip. Light body, clean crisp taste,, slightly hopped, overall for a gluten free brew, it wasnít that bad.

Bottle. This is my first gluten-free beer, so Iím going into this a bit hesitant. I appreciate that these exist, but I havenít particularly heard good things about their taste. This one though is pretty decent if ya ask me. A light, orange zest/grapefruit aroma. Taste itself is pretty watery with grapefruit in the taste, and a decently bitter finish. The finish is pretty crisp, and the body is maybe too watery but I like it enough. Oh well. Body is very light, and I mean seriously if you told me this is some sort of mellowed grapefruit juice Iíd likely believe it. Nothing to go out of your way to get, but it was nice to try and a pleasant surprise. Iíll point out that this description on the site states that itís 8.1% alcohol, but this bottle says 5% alcohol.
