Bottle at some burger joint in Naples. The pour’s light gold with a small head. The nose is lemon cake, some orange peel, a bit of candy and grass. Fairly faint aromas. The taste is fairly light, benign. A bit of donut. Grass, some lemon Light, watery body. Caramel malt. Fine carbonation. Overall, there’s not too much to it.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a small creamy/soapy orange-beige head .The aroma was tangy caramel, nut, fruity hops and citrus. The flavor was bitter and tart pine, grapefruit and a bit of caramel. Medium length bitter and dry pine and grapefruit. Medium body. Eh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had no idea this was gluten free when I bought it - bought as a single - nothing on the label states as such - oh well - clear orange, with a rather thick lace and some fine suspended particulate - nose of earthy hops and tropical fruit, a bit of honeyish sweetness - flavor is a bit sweet up front, but it dries out as the hops come to the fore, bringing notes of tropical fruit, peppery character - a bit of a biscuit note and ginger on the tail end - surprisingly good for a gluten free beer.

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
A deep amber to copper colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has some musk and wood. There is also some toffee. The taste is a fairly dry woody character. There is also some note of the musk and wood. A nice dry pale ale style brew that only lacks a little bit of the caramel flavor of a regular pale ale. This is easily the best gluten free beer I have tried.

Sample as a bonus beer at the Evil Twin tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 6/7/12. Clear copper pour with a thin off-white head. Malty nose with not much else. Malty flavor with some crisp hops. Pretty bland overall.

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Now for the fun part,. This was a tasty easy drinking pale ale. Nice hops forward flavor. The malt was tasty and at times very hard to tell this was removed. Nice New Beer.

Considering that I live in a IPA, APA etc.-desert, I’m looking forward to just any beers in that style and don’t really care about if its gluten free or not. This one has got a clear deep amber colour with low head and medium body. Nose of aromatic hops. Taste fresh, young, aromatic hops, fresh coriander greens, pink and white pepper, thyme, amber and spicy barley. Very easy and nice to drink, enjoyed it a lot.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An absolutely fine, well balanced IPA with a citrus beginning and maybe unusual non-bitter end. Fesh, thirst-killing and light in the taste. Very good starter for a beer evening. Classy.
