Clear medium golden beer. Smells of light pine and hops. Goes down smooth super light filling sensation. 1in head goes away quickly. Slight carmelesque taste. Overall a good bar beer easy 6 packer. Pretty good would buy again.

Probably the best of the gluten-free brews I have had to date...

I knew there was something out-of-the-ordinary with this beer when I poured it into the pint glass - clear amber color where you can see the tiny carbonation bubbles rising happily to the surface, a nice thick foam top, a decent staying power on the foam along with spectacular and almost solid lacing down the glass. I was impressed just on sight alone. The smell was just about at the median for a pale but it had a tang of sweetness to it I just couldn't shake, and I didn't want to anyway. The rest of the characteristics were just about average, I hate to say. A mouthfeel that was quite smooth, light, but with carbonation that built on itself as it warmed. The taste was classic pale ale - nothing to distinguish itself from others I have had. Overall, it's definitely a solid beer, I've got a sixer of this stuff, so I'm glad I it'll be pretty good the rest of the way.

12oz bottle with a best by date

This tastes like if they actually added hops to their other gluten free beer. Kidding, but this *is* a hop focused beer. Still has the signature malt flavors of NB beers, very fat tire esque. The hops are mostly here in bitterness, they don't carry across much flavor.

Better than the other gluten free beer, but disappoining because of the wasted potential. I'm glad I don't have a made-up gluten allergy as an excuse for my morbid obesity, because then I'd have to drink this more than once.

A gift.
Enjoy by 24 Sep 17. 12oz bottle stored at 42 degrees. Served at 42 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Aroma – very light citrusy hops.
Head – large (Maximum six cm, aggressive pour), off white, low density froth with above average retention time, leaving a two to three mm ring, lots of torn curtains attached to the ring, and a heaped island.
Lacing – fair. Many irregular pieces of curtain with bubbles ranging in size from tiny to small.
Body – dark yellow, hazy.
Flavor – begins with hop bitterness followed by a maltiness. The citrus from the nose does not appear in the flavor. No alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – thin, watery, soft carbonation.

A decent looking and smelling brew, with something to desired in flavor.

Appearance 4, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5.

Tastes better warmer. Had some less than 40 degrees and tasted like hoppy water. If "normal" beer affected me and I wanted a low gluten hoppy ale then I would probably get again.

Aroma is nice, fresh hoppy scent. Not piney, floral or tropical--apparently they use equinox and their description seems pretty accurate.
Color is light, very clear. Good head retention.
Alcohol not detectable, hop forward, little malt sweetness, overall kind of bland in that department. Not detecting much roasted or caramel malt.
Mouthfeel lacking compared to other "standards" I am used to.
I'd drink it again but probably not seek it out. If you are gluten sensitive/intolerant than not a bad choice at all.

Pours a copper color with a foamy white head with lots of lacing. Smell is citrusy/tropical fruit. The taste is the same with a slight hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is refreshing. Overall not bad, but not great. Couldn't tell it had gluten taken out.

Bottle best by 23JUL17. Nonic pint.

A: pours a very slightly hazed pale copper with 1 finger moussy ivory head with some large, chunky bubbles. Retains a thick white ring at the edges with a thick island of bubbly foam all the way down. Very nice lacing.

S: how an APA ought to, citrusy and slightly tropical, with plenty of bready, slightly honeyed malt sweetness. Reminds me a bit of the last Sierra Nevada pale ale I had.

T: very standard APA. Arrives slightly bready, with citrus hops (navel orange?) making their presence known without overpowering. Guava is a good descriptor; sweet but not sharp. Low acidity. Hop character turns greener, perhaps grassier toward the end. Medium, cleansing bitterness on the end.

M: firmly midweight and quite well carbonated. Very clean finishing.

O: just a very well-crafted, easy drinking APA. Nothing special, apart from the gluten having been removed. Certainly it doesn't suffer for it. I'd drink this again, but I think Sierra Nevada and Sweetwater 420 are both better and very similar.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a pretty nice yellow/amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy/foamy white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.
