look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Orange-gold, hazed, white head has decent retention and lace.

S - Grapefruit flesh, caramel and bready sweetness, touch of pine.

T - Follows the nose, but has a buttery off-flavor mid palate which builds as it warms. Little bitterness from the hops, stays mostly sweet.

M - Medium body, good medium carb level

O - Needs a little more hop bitterness to balance sweetness. Buttery/diacetyl flavor doesn't help.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty nice hops and malt aroma
Appearance- A dark golden color with a small white head.
Taste- This is where it disappoints, it is a beer flavor but has an odd aftertaste that takes away from the flavor.
Palate- A medium to light bodied brew with mild carbonation.
Overall- I didn't enjoy this beer, for those who need to go gluten free, I am sorry that this may be your only choice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clean orange-ish too yellow color with a light tan head. In the aroma, sweeter, with honey and clove notes. In the taste, dry raisin like sweetness, and a bit sticky sweet. A small bite, but mainly smooth with a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry honey like and gritty aftertaste. Not that good of a pale, but for gluten free, decent.

Meh. This one was nice and easy to drink. It would be great on a summer day, but there just wasn't much flavor. I didn't get any hoppiness or character at all. Almost drinks like a Bud Light.

I was not as impressed with their Pale Ale as their Lager. Poured a 1/8 inch off-white head which faded fast. Hazy iced tea color with a touch of amber and no effervescence left in the body. Very little smell at all, even as it warmed. Taste is pretty bland and though it has hops it's nowhere close to the hops in an average Pale Ale. Only a mild brief hop finish. Pretty darn boring to me.

bottle into a pint glass

clear copper, almost amber, color with a nice tan head and great lacing

smell is very faint. maybe a touch of molasses or brown sugar

taste is synthetic sweetness and nutty. a bit of bitterness in the end, not very well balanced

mouthfeel is creamy, almost like a nitro

not a bad beer, but I wouldn't go to this for a pale ale-it reminded me of an amber lager

12oz bottle poured into IPA glass.

Rich amber color, quarter finger of good looking white head. Moderate lacing.

Hoppy, bits of citrus or fruit flavor, with a slightly off, metallic aftertaste. Well carbonated with a good texture and balance.

Wouldn't know it was gluten free or otherwise restricted on ingredients without being told. Didn't know when buying, it's not on the bottle.

Overall it's an above average apa, which is an accomplishment given the gluten-free restriction. It looks much better than it tastes, unfortunately.
