2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle - Small white head. Falls just like cola when you pour that. Body is a clear light amber color. Lots of carbonation coating inside of glass. Very clear malt aroma. Bit of a sour molasses taste and burnt rice taste. Aftertaste is almost perfumy. Thin body. I guess if you have wheat alergies you might grow to like this,.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nasty stuff here. Aroma was weak and nearly undetectable. Could pick up a slight graininess and not much else. Pour was a nice enough medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty nasty. There was a distinct grainy flavor in the front that tasted like burnt oatmeal. Slightly sour in the finish (which doesn’t linger). These beers are hard to finish but the strong carbonation make them refreshing in a weird way (and keep them from being drain pours)

This is a good choice for the gluten free crowd. The beer snobs have hit on this horribly but it is really not bad. It has a fuller flavor than most commercial swill and won’t upset the gut either!

No way I can top 3fourths comments, they are spot on! Clear copper with a thin white head. Scent is corn which fades to something worse. Taste is fruity and old cereal.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
There is a slight hops bite and finish, including a touch of bitterness, but the underlying taste is off. A bit sour, sweet, with a lingering aftertaste.

Rotten garbage - now with hops! Another pile of crap in this brewery lineup bit at least the hops disguised what was beneath. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a huge soapy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was faint floral, piney and herbal hops with light cracker underneath. The flavor was dry and grainy with notes of cracker, mint, garbage and herbal and floral hops. The finish was long, grainy, medicinal, and had lingering mint and hops. Disgusting.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of sorghum, hops, garbage, and rice. Poured amber in color with a tiny, off-white head that quickly diminished but lasted around the edges. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of sorghum, alcohol, gasoline, and nail polish remover. Light body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Drain pour.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Craft. Pours medium copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head and a lot of carbonation streams. Nose is sorghum, pretty high hop load. Tastes of sorghum, a bit tart, with a hefty hop bill, some mild molasses, and earthy yeasty notes. Tastes a lot like some of the pale ales I used to brew in my Mr. Beer kit. Not too shabby for this style, and by this style I mean gluten-free and not specialty grain.

Probably the best Gluten-Free beer I’ve had so far. My fiance was just diagnosed with Celiac’s so we’ve been trying a lot of different options. We both like IPA’s, so this is a lot closer to what we’ve been looking for than a lot of the more mainstream options like Red Bridge (ok) and New Grist (absolutely terrible). It’s hoppy which is my most important criteria, but could use more flavor. I was just informed that Sarah is "not in love with it". We’ll keep looking. Someone make a gluten-free IPA! Dogfish Head, that means you...
