2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Intrigued by their attempt, apparently a new process allows for a more authentic profile.
Pours orange amber with an etched surface. Nice nose up front, crisp and hoppy with apple and grapefruit. Some tea and malty undertones. Flavor is malty (not expected) and sweet with herbal and bitter hop components. Iím down with the flavor here, really approachable! Medium bodied with hi carb and a semi dry finish. Great quality, surprised, gonna have to try the lager.
Iím happy to see a gluten free option sans shitty flavor. Well considered and thoughtfully crafted. I expect this to be a limited addition to the line in lieu of the gluten free craze sweeping the US right now, but itís a welcome one in my opinion. A great option for the celiacís right here folks.

bottle. Clean sweet malt aroma. Poured clear amber with a quick fizzy head. Light body with average carbonation. Flavour is grainy with pale malt and finishes with a slight herbal hop dryness. Not bad for gluten free.

Bottle to glass at room temp. Didnít realise it was a gluten free beer when I bought it or when I tried it as it says nothing on the bottle. Light amber colour, some fruit on the nose, I thought raspberry. Slight hoppy taste with a citrus finish.

$1.85 Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours red-amber with a small off-white head. Smells of fruits, flowers, and citrus. Tastes of cheap lager with extra hops and has a strange lingering finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottled Jul 16th. Slight haze on the orange-amber body and a creamy disc of bubbles on top. Aroma of soapy orange zest, butterscotch and floral hop with a hint of resin. Taste is caramel, zesty orange and tangerine with a slight note of resin on the finish. Light body is soft and oily but finishes dryish. I would prefer less carbonation, but this is the best gluten-free beer of the handful Iíve tried.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Minor aroma of hops....slightly piney, some citrus. Orange amber in color with microscopic head...tan. For "brewed gluten free", beer is outstanding! First taste is sweet malt, with caramel notes. Then the citus hops hit. Finishes with a mild bitterness that lingers a little longer than needed. By for the best beer in gluten free or gluten limited category Iíve had to date.
