COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Planet Pale Ale (formerly Off Grid Pale Ale) is a wonderful interpretation of the classic pale ale style. It has a distinctly deep amber color and great character and body. Three varieties of hops provide a wonderful aroma and a citrus and spicy hop flavor. This smooth gluten-free ale is made from sorghum and brown rice extract, molasses, tapioca maltodextrin, caramel color, hops, and yeast.

12 oz. bottle for review from Louis Glunz. It has a good, coppery pale ale color. The head is more bubbly and fizzy than most beers, which Iíll put up to its "grain" bill and vegan fining. I really cannot agree with anyone else that the smell is bad. It has some hops to it, which can make up for a lot of other faults. There is the slight sourness that I have found in other gluten-free beers, which becomes more pronounced as the glass warms up. Still there are hops putting up a front. The beerís website mentions on citrusy hops, so that may be contributing to the slightly cidery sourness. Since Iím supposed to be watching a different condition, blood sugar, itís interesting to see the standard ingredient label which shows this has no carbs from sugar (I know, the carbs from alcohol can be just as much a problem), But I do think I could manage with this if I had to (boy, is that damning with faint praise).

Smells actually like a fairly normal beer...pale malt and yeast. Flavor is severely diminished, however. There is some decent pale flavor, but then a sort of apple cider vinegar taste. Give had some tremendous gluten free bread, chocolate, cookies, etc.....not sure if I'll find a beer (especially because I think I'm done looking).

12 oz bottle pours gold brown. Kind of hazy and fizzy. Tastes of citrus, caramel and hops. Probably the best gluten free beer Iíve drank.

At Native Foods in Lakeview. For a gluten free beer it was pretty good, fuller in body and with less of the dry tinney flavor. Compared to regular beer sure it is not as good but not bad for g-free. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Pours clear amber/copper with a medium off-white head that leaves decent lacing. Interesting aroma of citrus and perhaps metal. Flavor is different, but not bad - citrus, molasses, sorghum, definite spiciness. Mildly bitter, floral finish. Aftertaste is a bit odd

Another average grain spin by New Planet - this one floral, light, piney, and a bit sour. Like a wussier version of an East Coast IPA, I suppose.

12oz bottle, orange label. Aroma of brown rice syrup and spicy hops. Dark amber color, thin light tan head. Tastes like a hop flavored Clif Bar. Finishes with a bold hop bitterness. Not very well balanced. (3306)
