Bottle with jackl. Clear pale yellow color, almost flat. Aroma of perfume, herbs, spice. Taste is bitter and herbal. Not a bad attempt, drinkable.

Pours a pale yellow color, almost a bit fluorescent, with a finger of white head. Nose is surprisingly hop forward. Orange peel and lemon zest give a strong aroma to the beer and it is followed by a bit of cracker and rice. Fairly sweet, too. Just a touch of grass and straw. The flavor is a touch bitter with some grass and citrus peel hop notes. As with the nose, a bit on the sweet side. Some cracker and rice, a bit of candied lemon peel, and a crisp finish. One of the better gluten free beers out there, I’d imagine.

Can from Malt & Vine. Looks like it’s been changed a bit - can puts ABV at 5.0%. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Nice aroma of resin hop. Near med body. Wow. It’s kind of like hopped soda. It is bitter and astringent. There’s a good dose of hop. And now I fully realize how important it is that hop have a malt backbone to stretch out on. Gotta be the best gluten free I can recall. But it’s sure not my desert island ale.

Sample at Kurtkeller 020: Stout-tastic 01 on 02/22/2015. Clear pale golden color with rising bubbles and a thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops and grain. Light-bodied with an herbal hops character with grain and citrus in the background. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Below average overall.

Different fermentables... stil tastes like sorghum. It is thin and pretty damn shitty if you ask me.

man...hard to find accurate info on this one. advertised as an ipa at the store, but it says 5% on the bottle, more an APA abv. Fox Tail on RB and BA are for an 8.1% IIPA, which this is definitely not. So, went with what the brewers website says. All said and done, it’s not bad at all for what it is, and ok overal. kinda weird tasting to tell you the truth. soapy, perfumy hops in the aroma and flavor. i don’t know if it’s the lack of malt, or if this is sorachi ace hops. feel is light and tingly, which kinda works for the style. looks light hazy yellow. probably the 2nd best gluten-free I’ve had, not that that is saying much, and also the 2nd best JJ beer, which says even less...but still"

12 oz. can. Pours "1 hour after a multi-vitamin urine yellow" with fizzy fast-dissipating white head and spare carbonation. Nose is hopcitrus, I get some apple in this, and sorghum. Tastes of citrus, I get lemon, some ricey nectary organic notes, hops, and a very heavily carbonated finish. This one is decent for a GF beer.

Bottle, grabbed by Parksy by mistake! Of course it was a mistake-- who in their right mind would willingly choose a gluten-free beer? After having their aweful wheat beer, I was wincing as I tried this one... But it actually wasn’t too bad. There’s a good blast of citrus hops to distract from the fact that there is virtually no malt structure to be found. Woefully thin. As a gluten-free beer, its not a bad offering. As a beer on its own terms, it’s pretty weak.

douglas88 (9421) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 12 ounce can. Pours a clear fizzy golden color. A ripe apple nose. A rich apple and citrus flavor, sour at times, glue, just ok. A bit odd as most gluten free brews tend to be.

Bottle. Gotta be the best gluten free beer I’ve ever had. Pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy grassy-ish aroma with some spicy hoppy notes. The flavor has lemony and grassy hops, a spritzy mouthfeel, and light apple/white grapes. I actually quite liked this.
