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.

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

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. American hop-forward nose, Cascade / Centennial pine resin and orange rind and orange jellies and such. Syrupy body, sweet honey malt leaves an oily texture on the tongue. Sharply bitter and pine-heavy. Clean fermentation but strangely filmy / slick texture. One-dimentional hop-driven sweet IPA but certainly more flavorful than any GF beer Iíve had before.

ElGaucho (2217) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Sweet aroma with some hop evident. Mostly clear amber body with cascading bubbles and a lasting white head. Nice lace. Nice hop profile. If I didnít know it lacked gluten I might not notice that it has some thinness, which may be due to the lack of gluten. Not being an expert in such matters. Not bad at all.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Pours amber gold with a slight white head. Nice hop aroma. Seems citrus. Med body. Nice hop burn. Lots of citrus/resin. Lots. Backbone seems lightly malty. Which is not literally possible. But this is likely to be the best gluten free thus far. Not a lot of support for the hops, but it works.

Beerenberger (1475) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Aroma of grapefruit. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin, mostly diminishing, white head and no lacing. The taste is mildly bitter. Grapefruit, pine, some resin notes, bread. Medium body with medium crisp carbonation. Overall, a very drinkable, not over the top, IPA. Full disclosure: had I realized this was a glutton free beer, I probably wouldnít have bought it in the first place. Would have been my loss.

Reid (1917) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 12oz single bought from Rothís Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $1.67 Pours a pale almost yellow/orange colour with a large luxurious,rocky off white head. Aromas of slightly grapefruit and floral hops.. some bready malts. Taste is quite balanced between the citric hops and a nice smoothcaramel maltiness. Ok beer good to drink Good enough mouthfeel..low carbonation, soft.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. This actually has a very nice IPA aroma and flavor. I was impressed. Crisp and clean this is the best Gluten free beer this far.

Purchased at Beermongers in Portland, OR. Drunk in the UK with my mum who has coeliac disease. Easily the best gluten free beer Iíve tried. I wouldnít have known that it was GF and actually I think itís better than Widmerís regular IPA. Iím guessing a lot of high quality hops were used, because I couldnít detect much beyond a bit of an astringent grain flavour which might have given away the substitute malts. Highly recommended for those who canít have gluten!
