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.

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.

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 (888) - 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.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
Aroma is almost orange soda. Citrusy hops with sugar from the rice. Pours an amber color. Bitterness fades quickly. As it warms up a little the bitterness takes charge and the grain fades

Deep copper w/ off-white fleeting head. No lace. Primarily cidery nose. Some floral hops too which is nice, but also some sort of metallic off-aroma. Good bitterness from American hops and a decent balance between hop character and something that I will call "maltiness." Some nice nuttiness makes up for the lack of malt, but like with other gluten free beers, the absence of malt and cidery characters are hard to get past. This is the best gluten free beer Iíve had, but still not a great beer.

The color is beautiful. Aaaaaaaaaaand thatís it for the compliments. This is just nasty, totally undrinkable. Itís worse than unflavored cough syrup. I would drink a PBR before drinking this, which-if you know me-is pretty bad.

3fourths (8338) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 candied orange brandy and paint thinner nose. different fusels and esters for sure. harsh, abrasive, unpleasant sharpness and medicinal quality from the first sip. bittering hops and nutri-sweet caramel flavoring hold on the tongue. undrinkable. no chance people put up with this just to keep drinking beer.

Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, husks, caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a strong note of butter/diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Unpleasant raw and diacetyl-rich aroma gets things off to a bad start. Sniffing this does not encourage one to even venture one sip. I find it perplexing that American microbrewers canít even make something as good as A-Bís Redbridge in the gluten-free category...which ainít a great beer, but man...attempts by Lakefront, Bardís Tale, New Planet, etc. are pretty atrocious.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Pours amber with no head. Smells of brown sugar and graham crackers with a hint of spicy hop. Full nectar with good carbonation. Starts out malty with a bit of sweet . A big hop profile is forward while the malt component dies rapidly leaving scorched mouth flesh to peel away. Not bad!
