3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tarnished orange pour with small white head ring and lots of small floaties. Caramel, biscuit, clean citrus and some foresty bitterness for balance. Very surprisingly NOT bad. I would not have guessed this was gluten free. Scores extra points for the fact that this a BEER that just happens to be a gluten-free beverage, instead of the other way around.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold body with a tall frothy mostly whit head.
Light floral hop aroma with sweet corn syrup.
Strange flavor that goes from sweet to bitter.
Full bodied, could be lighter for my tastes in this style.
This might be a pretty good Gluten Free beer, average otherwise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Beautiful floral aroma mixing with citrus and heavy caramel and hop spiciness. Light wood, but more about that doughy caramel (which reminds me of Lagunitas every time, without fail). Bright but hazy body with a short off-white head. Taste is moderately dry (there’s some sweetness to start but it’s not too big), fullish body in heft, big Centennial-type woodiness with a little paper-/cat-scratch ala Simcoe -- hard to believe this is straight Cascade considering the variety they’re getting from the hops here. Sticky caramel, malty and not grainy, clean with light APA-level bitterness. I like this more than its lagery sister, and man, the two have opened my eyes to just how far commercial gluten-free brewing has come in the past few years.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a big frothy head. Aromas of malty caramel, piney hops, and slight toffee. Flavors of light pine hops, light caramel, and just a hint of hay/grain. Lightly sweet and mildly bitter. Leaves just a light corn/grain/bitter aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden pour, not the greatest looking. Strong piney hop scent. Odd taste, haven’t had anything quite like it before, kind of like a sweet IPA, mild on both counts, with a weird aftertaste I can’t quite place. Is that from the absence of gluten? I have no idea. I’m craving a bagel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange red color with thin white lacing. Citrus and slight earthy hop aroma. Clean palate with some fresh hop notes. Thinner palate with nice citrus appeal. For a de-glutenized beer I can really stand behind this pale ale. It might lack a little body but with no grain basis this is understandable. If I was unable to consume delicious bread I would certainly be able to turn my palate onto this ale.
