I would never have guessed it was gluten free. By far, the best one Iíve tried. It has a more red ale quality with a nice malt, caramel base, and a very well balanced hop presence.

Nice light caramel coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, one centimetre tall light tan head. Aroma of light hops with some citrus and herbal notes very noticeable with a little malt smell and a touch of alcohol and cardboard. Light-bodied; Sharp herbal and lightly earthy hop notes show up front with a good malt backbone (somehow without glutens) behind and a bitterness showing well from the hops. Aftertaste is nice with the bitterness very noticeable, a touch of alcohol, but the good news is that you donít really miss the malt or glutens. Overall, a rather surprisingly good and true-to-style beer considering what it could be without the full malt notes. If you have celiac disease, this one is definitely one worth trying and enjoying all the time - otherwise, itís not a bad choice to sample if you like APAs. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 02-November-2012.

Served from bottle at Omission event at FatPour Tapworks. Yes, Iíve notched it up a bit for being "good" as a glutoen-free beer goes. Color is a little more brown than pale ale copper in its glass. Still exhibits a nice malty and bitter hop smell. Taste is pretty forward on malts, with a basic pale ale hop background. Some orangey notes thread themselves in as I travel further down the glass. Not an "extreme" pale ale, but it starts to pick up some hop zing as it warms. Probably just being a little cautious, since the malts are modified for the GF process. Then again, thereís almost a fresh cut hop taste at the finish.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large frothy off-white creamy head. Good head retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of spicy, herbal hops with toasted, caramel malts. The taste is floral, herbal, green hops with caramel malts. Medium bodied, some residual sweetness. Nice gluten free beer.

12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Copper-orange pour with a thin white head that leaves a ring. Aroma is bready malt and citrus. Tastes are grainy, caramel, pine, honey, dough and resiny citrus. Has a tinny vibe. Eh.

Purchased at Evolution Wine & Spirits in Chicago, IL; enjoyed during the work week. This one wasnít very good, omitting a lot of flavor but for the most part one of the better gluten-free beers Iíve had. Still, nothing special or especially good.

Poured from a 12ounce bottle. This is one of the best gluten free beers I have had. A nice hop profile, solid bitterness. The grain character is good as well. There is a soapy off flavor but other then that not bad.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light citric hops, pale malts, and a light sweetness. One of the better gluten free beers Iíve tried.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is citrus, pine, malt, caramel, and grain. Interesting for sure, but very drinkable.

This is not hop-forward. If anything positive, I like the appearance: fair lacing, moderate head, and a nice translucent hue with random globules. I want to like it because it seems that it ought to be good. The texture is a bit oily. The hops are old. Itís like a mediocre honey ale, which is weird because I did get a note of burnt coffee so I donít know what the hell is honestly going on here.
