Had on tap at Sticks and Stones last night.Came to the table in a standard pint glass a hazed burnt orange color with a thinner but well sustained slight off white head atop.A big burst of citrus fruits in the nose along with lighter pine notes,just a big fresh hop attack.Honestly flavor wise you would have no idea that this was gluten free,big fresh citric hops with some bitterness in the finish with mild sweet biscuit flavors,no harsh sorghum flavor in the backend.What a great beer,Iam drinking less these days because Iam a little sensative to gluten,I may get a few growlers filled of this stuff!

I haven't reviewed a beer in a while, but this one is worth reviewing. As someone that tries their best to keep their gluten intake low while still enjoying craft beer, it doesn't get much better than this awesome IPA from Wicked Weed.

All the aroma and flavor of the real deal, minus most of the gluten! If I could get this regularly, it would be my go to IPA.

The only place it suffers slightly is in body, but I like my IPAs on the dry side anyway, so I didn't miss it at all.

If you have a gluten sensitivity and need an IPA fix, this is the beer for you!

Wicked weed brewed their Freak of Nature IPA and it went a process to remove gluten, came out to be <10ppm.

Appearance- It was a perfect golden amber, nice head and lacing.

Smell- its smelled amazing! Dank! hops, hops, and more hops!

Taste- it tasted a little lighter than freak but not but much, it was very delicious and i could never tell you it was a gluten free beer if i didn't already know.

Mouthfeel- perfect carbonation, it wasn't thin but it wasn't chewy i thought it was great!

Overall- by far has to be the best GF/Gluten removed beer out there!
