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).

This is a strange beer. It has a cider flavor to it. The body cannot support the average amount of alcohol it contains.

This is another gluten-free beer to avoid. 3/4 of the bottle went down the sink. It does offer a nice head, color, and aroma. Itís unfortunate that the after taste is so unpleasant.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Gregís dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours a dark burnt orange appearance with a tan head. Weirdly buttery, twangy aroma. Tart, caramel, molasses, bland fruity flavor. Awful.

EdInSaltLake (584) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Syrupy sweet, with a wierd herbal-ish kind of character. Light green apple finish. Also a sort of medicinal character; subtle, but not good. Carbonation seems pretty low.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Aroma is kind of a spicy gingerbread. Not typical of anything. Copper color, tan head. Taste is cidery and metallic with a play-dough aftertaste. Light but sticky body. New Planet offering are not beer-like, instead they are an alcoholic soda of some sort.

This beer has a nice amber color with a small foamy head. The aroma consists of a small amount of ginger, spice, and hops. The taste consists of cider, vinegar, and a small amount of spice with a bad after taste.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a rocky, off-white head. Aroma: Quite herbal, peppery, leafy, soapy, strange, spicy like ginger, pine and resin, quite hoppy but not quite right. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Soapy, lemon-lime, ginger-like spiciness, a sort of toasted grain/brown sugar/caramel thing, herbal; dry with pretty good bitterness and a lime-herbal-soapy finish.

A good effort. Iím glad Iím not glutarded.

12oz bottle 4/17/14 (Meijer)-38į in Shaker-Pours a clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of nastiness with a little hops. This light to medium bodied brew is again not very good.
