3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Holy crap! A gluten free beer that does not taste like absolute ass. Only in America. This has a nice orange color, is very clear and has a small white head. It tastes like a halfway decent IPA and that is astronimically better than any beer I have that has been marked as gluten free. The nose is mildly floral but the hops open up a bit once the beer is tasted, revealing a bit of mango and pine. There is a bit of simple malt sweetness but not enough for the texture to feel heavy and carbonation is somewhat vigourus. It finishes w/ mild bitterness, a touch of sweetness and some grapeskin astringency. This isn’t exactly killing the best hoppy pales the world has to offer but is very definitely the best gluten-free beer I’ve had thus far.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice golden amber to bronzed brown color. There was a nice one and a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute and left a decent amount of spider web lacing. Nice look!
The smell had a nice strong hoppy spicy to somewhat citrusy sweet profile.
The taste was semi-sweet but carried a decent bitter hoppiness about it. There was a sticky sweet citrusy to caramel aftertaste and a light yet quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the APA style and it still had a decent sharpness invading my mouth and tongue.
Overall, for the most part, I’d say this was a nice APA made as a gluten-free. If I couldn’t have wheat products for the rest of my life, I’d definitely be drinking this with no problems whatsoever.

A little better than the lager, I guess. Some notion of malt whatever that is. Pours amber with ok head and lacing. On tap at DC Summerfest.
