Omission IPA is a gluten free beer with a golden color and a perfectly clear body. Poured into a glass, the head of white colored foam looks nice and it does leave some lacing. The aroma is one of citrus and a touch of pine. Based on appearance, the beer makes a positive first impression.

Now, for the taste. This beer has a flavor that follows from its nose, and that means the taste of citrus and pine shine through. The dominant citrus flavor is grapefruit and there is enough of a caramel- malt backbone that the beer manages to remain nicely balanced compared to other northwest IPA brews.

This IPA is a pleasant surprise in that it tastes like a real beer should. I say that because other gluten- free beers do not really taste like beer, and that is in large part due to their not using barley malt in the brewing process. Omission IPA does use barely malt, along with other authentic ingredients. It is VERY clean for an IPA and its clarity is like few I have ever seen.

Even if you are not someone who requires gluten free food and drink in your diet, this is definitely a beer worth trying. It may not measure up to some of the all- time great IPA, but it is certainly above average and deserving of a sampling if you get the chance.

My first thought on drinking this was "Hmm... This is an IPA, right??". Turns out, its Gluten-free. Turns out, not so bad. The taste is very much lacking the bite of a good IPA but, for a gluten-free brew, its better than expected. Then again, I'm mostly comparing it to O'Douls... the Cleveland Show of beers.

Ref: Though "Family Guy" was such a hit, its spin-off - The Cleveland Show - was not what everyone had expected from it's predecessor. Only sort of ok, but not nearly as good as the real thing.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus candy and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but it seems like they made it extra bitter to cover the gluten free taste.
