2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. I am not that familar with this brewer. I could not find on the bottle that it was gluten free. I generally do not seek them out. This ale poured a hazy amber color with a white head and modest lacing. The only aroma I could detect was some resin and floral notes. There is some citrus in the taste but everything is muted. I realize gluten free ales and beers serve a limited market and I am glad it is there. This ale has light to medium body with soft carbonation. The finish ended with some sweeetness and not the bitter taste of most APA.

Light floral, crackers and whitebread. Hazy orange look. Moderate bitterness and somewhat sweet maltiness - it lack the malt depth of the style which in turn emphasizes the hops. Lighter body, slick feel. Very convincing for this type of beer.

Wow, my first good gluten free beer. I wouldn’t have guessed this is gluten free. Lasting citrus and floral hoppy. Thanks Tony.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange yellow with a one-finger off-white head and moderate lace. Aromas of mild grapefruit, light grass, and biscuit. Flavors are much the same, with grassy hops gently offset by the biscuity malt. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a somewhat dry finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with orange highlights and a tall, cream head. Nose is definitely hoppy, with equal parts floral and citrus. A lot of hops on the front, but with a weird midpalate that reminds me of soap and burned toast. Finishes long and bitter. It’s barely acceptable.

Bottle. Light amber color. Decent, light tan head. Some light lace. Aroma is a sweet, light floral with just a wisp of tangerine. Taste is a light hoppy, citrus with a touch of caramel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Carrot orange, not a lot of head, but a surprising amount of lace. Looks like any old pale ale. Decent body; good thickness.
Okay so the aroma: prickly, sharp malts; a little bitter but also a tad flowery. The malt isn’t exactly sugary, but it is bready and dry: biscuity. Pleasant enough.
Flavor is primarily hops, the woody, east coast kind. The malt is definitely different: it’s kind of like cardboard, but not the "off" wet cardboard you get in some beers. It has an aftertaste that is very dry. It’s not unpleasant but it’s not quite beer-like.
The feel is buttery and slick. Has a decent body to it. As far as G-free beers go, I don’t really know if this is one of the good ones or one of the bad ones. But if I had celiac, I could do a lot worse.

Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of earth tones and almost no hops. Flavor is the same. Only the earth tones and not much else.
