COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Omission IPA is a bright, hop forward Northwest Style IPA produced in the spirit of the original IPAs shipped from the UK to India in the late 1800ís. The heavy-handed use of Cascade and Summit hops give it notable pine, citrus, and grapefruit aromas and flavors. The bitterness is what you would expect of a NW IPA but this beer is balanced and smooth due to the perfect level of malt sweetness. The finish is crisp, clean, and refreshing Ė itís a true IPA loverís IPA.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with rocky white head, stringy lacing. Decent retention, especially compared to other gluten-free beers. Aroma is mild hop bitter, cereal, grain. Flavor is mildly hoppy, mild pine, strong resin finish, mild sweet, bitter, cereal aftertaste. One of Omissions better beers as well as one of the better GF beers. Soft to moderate carbonation, light body, and mildly watery texture. Poor compared to IPAs but not bad considering what they are working with.

stevoj (2160) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bland , average ale saved by the hops. Faint aroma and faint malt taste with nice hops kick on finish. Dry and chalky palate. Rich golden color with spare white head, decent lacing. Good for gluten allergies, but better IIPAs are available for those without allergies.

Joakgust (890) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle, 33cl - Clear golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, gooseberries, hay and pine needles. Flavor is spicy with notes of gooseberries, citrus and pine needles. Intense gooseberry feel to it as well as being well balanced. Unique and a must try beer, didnít think GF couof be this good.

Oscbert (1027) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
~Citrusy grapefruit aroma with floral and earthy hop notes. I really enjoy the aroma. ~Pours a clear gold color with lasting creamy white head. ~Citrusy hop, with light resin and earthy hopiness. Light breadiness, but well balanced. ~medium bodied, medium CO2, lingering earthy bitterness. ~I had no idea this was gluten free when I bought it. Wasnít really expecting to like it. This is an excellent beer. The only gluten free beer Iíve ever had. Impressed.

brinehart (211) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Best GF beer I've had - indistinguishable from regular beer. Good, fresh citrusy and dank hops on the nose. Taste follows. Good hop flavor. Significant bitterness, but balanced. Mostly caramel malt.

Ernest (6221) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. As with the other Omission brews, quite good for supposedly being gluten-free (although that fact is technically unknown)...thereís no way in hell I would guess this is a GF beer from aroma/flavor, but of course thatís largely because barley *is* used. And once again, amusingly better than most of Widmerís regular beers.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bright but hazy golden color. White head lasts. Aroma is extreme citrus... tangelo, kumquat and whatnot. Taste is soapy, bitter citrus. Pretty much its awesome esp. for being gluten free.

boxofrane (2113) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear copper with medium sized white head, plenty of glass carbonation, and decent retention. The aroma is mostly citrus and a little acid based. There is some light pine and floral notes thrown in. The taste is medium bitter, has a nice citrus balance, and a lingering bitter finish. I think people here are a little biased on the gluten free because this is an acceptable IPA in my opinion.

maddmatt639 (243) - Pacifica, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Low retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight hops and sweet malt. Tastes kind of stale-like with some malt and a little hop background. Don't like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
