I had to start avoiding gluten for health reasons, and have missed hops ever since. This is a great beer in comparison to every other truly gluten-free beer I have tried. It’s the most hop-forward gluten-free beer I have found and the flavor and consistency are such that I would never know it was gluten-free without the label. Thank you Holidaily for such an excellent drink.

this isnt anywhere near as good as the blonde they do. the lack of gluten seems a little more exposed here in a more full flavored style. there is a funny almost burnt aroma and flavor to this, which i find odd since the beer is so light and pale in color. its an off flavor to me at first, but then the beer takes on a sort of nutty property that i can see together with the burnt thing might be a product of some interesting grain or process i am less familiar with. i think the hops are more bitter than flavorful too, which i think is a flaw in a beer like this. i was almost thinking it would be like a hop soda, all heavily dry hopped and juicy, i think that would not only cover up some of the weird flavor in here, but actually flatter it with the right varietals and intensity, but that is not the case here. i like the bitterness too, but the flavor really isnt there. still light and easy drinking though, which is a plus if you like the flavor. i think its neat the approach these guys are taking to gluten free beer, but where their blonde would pass as normal beer and in some cases may even taste preferable to it, this one would never pass for a real ipa, and is in need of some tweaking to even get close. still cool the options exist for those who cannot have regular beer, its leaps and bounds ahead of most of its competition still...
