3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served from bottle at Omission event at FatPour Tapworks. Yes, I’ve 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, there’s almost a fresh cut hop taste at the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at the Chili’s at the Orlando Airport. Lightly hazy orange with a medium off white head. Nose is light floral and grassy with a hint of caramel. Flavor is lightly bitter with some contrasting sweetness. Pretty much just an OK beer but it is good for a gluten-free one.

12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color with moderate head. Aromas of light biscuity wet malts. Flavors of light carmel malts with only a hint of hops. Not much presence but not offensive.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Robe orangée, légèrement opaque avec une belle mousse qui tient bien. Nez métallique, herbal et résineux. Idem en bouche. Texture légèrement liquoreuse. On reste sur le goût de métal sur la fin.
À moins d’être un fan de jus de clous rouillés, je déconseille.
Je n’avais pas remarqué que c’était une bière sans gluten. J’ai compris la leçon: les bières gluten free, plus jamais!

Poured a light orange with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops, caramel, and metal. Flavor similar, not the worst gluten free beer I’ve had, but not good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is balanced. Taste is a little yeasty, but otherwise a pretty good balance of bitter hops and sweet malts. Overall better than expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle bought at the Chappel Beer Festival, Essex. Poured a clear gold colour with a lasting white head. Aroma of light hops, with citrus and caramel malt notes not as hoppy as usual for an APA. Body was quite light and texture a bit on the thin side. Average+ carbonation. Bit disappointed overall.

This is a good APA, but I don’t agree with the commercial description its not bold and hoppy it dose have good malty flavor not hoppy and bitter.
