I’m not sue, but this is probably my favorite Gluten Free beer. That’s note really saying much, most gluten free beers are pretty dire. This seems like a pretty typical American Pale, with a good mix of caramel, citrus, and pine in both the aroma and flavor. Not bad. jgb9348 (6327) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Nice light caramel coloured body with an orange glow and a thin, one centimetre tall light tan head. Aroma of light hops with some citrus and herbal notes very noticeable with a little malt smell and a touch of alcohol and cardboard. Light-bodied; Sharp herbal and lightly earthy hop notes show up front with a good malt backbone (somehow without glutens) behind and a bitterness showing well from the hops. Aftertaste is nice with the bitterness very noticeable, a touch of alcohol, but the good news is that you don’t really miss the malt or glutens. Overall, a rather surprisingly good and true-to-style beer considering what it could be without the full malt notes. If you have celiac disease, this one is definitely one worth trying and enjoying all the time - otherwise, it’s not a bad choice to sample if you like APAs. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 02-November-2012.

355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head leaving some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus with some other light fruits. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Finishes clean with a light body and decent carbonation. Very well done for a gluten free brew, after tasting I would never have known this was a GF beer. TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2012

Well, I didn’t know that this was gluten free so that’s pretty good start. Looks the part, the aroma is a pretty balanced mixture of hops and malt. This goes down pretty smooth, and for a gluten free beer is a quite reasonable price. May be the best of the gluten frees I’ve had. mkel07 (6145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2016 Bottle from Cheeseburger In Paradise Waikiki 261214. By far and away the best gluten free beer I have ever had. Plenty of flavour, golden amber colour and great aroma. Pyrmir (6126) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2016
330 ml bottle at Church Street Saloon. Amberish with off white head. Aroma of toasted grain, caramel, grapefruit and resin.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice golden amber to bronzed brown color. There was a nice one and a half fingered white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute and left a decent amount of spider web lacing. Nice look!
The smell had a nice strong hoppy spicy to somewhat citrusy sweet profile.
The taste was semi-sweet but carried a decent bitter hoppiness about it. There was a sticky sweet citrusy to caramel aftertaste and a light yet quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the APA style and it still had a decent sharpness invading my mouth and tongue.
Overall, for the most part, I’d say this was a nice APA made as a gluten-free. If I couldn’t have wheat products for the rest of my life, I’d definitely be drinking this with no problems whatsoever.
