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.

PorterPounder (5537) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Superior, CO - Superior Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is very earthy, yet chemically, hints of day after a beer party. Flavor has a slight citrus bent to it with some sour off-putting apple notes. Some spiciness redeems it somewhat. Mouthfeel is harsh and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Glad I can process glutens!

Sweet and spicy nose. Surprisingly “malty” with sharp nips of toast, darkened caramel, nuts, ginger snap cookies and molasses. Hops are bitter with notes of grass, spices and grapefruit zest. The aftertaste is filled with elements of syrup, sorghum and a lingering bitterness. I’m not a big fan of gluten-free and/or sorghum beers, but this is one of the better ones out there.

The aroma is like a vitamin store with hints of molasses and a fairly strong herbal hop. The appearance is light amber with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a strong vitamin quality. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall it’s hard to like this beer there is nothing good about it except for those who can’t have gluten. But it’s hardly better than no beer at all.

Bottle from Ledgers. Pours clear copper with very little head. Aromas of citrus and yeast. Med body. Flavor is quite odd, suggesting metal, brown sugar and a little citrus. Maybe treacle. Would take getting used to.

brokensail (10914) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
A: The beer pours a transparent amber color with almost no head. S: Grass and citrus peel are pretty much the only evidence of hops in this beer. Very bland and watery, but there is a bit of rice and some wet cardboard/paper aroma, too. T: Quite watery with a bit of rice and a bad vegetarian hot dog flavor. A bit of cardboard and wet paper with some mild grass and citrus peel. A mild bitterness to it on the finish. M: Very light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Nothing about this beer was enjoyable.

brenn79 (1519) - Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2011
12 oz. bottle- Pours crystal clear reddish orange with a very small head that dissipates immediately, this is not looking good already. There is a confectionary aroma to it, caramel and sticky tape. The taste is sorghum, semi bitter, very dry, this is not good at all, there is an amber ale taste that tries to come out, but dirty dishwater flavors and a very unappealing aftertaste overpowers it. Drain pour, unfinishable, man I hope I never become allergic to wheat or barley.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thin tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, caramel, smoke, pine, and hops. Similar, but lighter aroma. Has a decent full body. Has a nice lingering bitterness that leaves me wanting more. A little lopsided, but easy to drink and rather enjoyable.
