New Planet Off Grid Pale Ale

new-planet-off-grid-pale-ale

New Planet Beer Co. is a Colorado brewer specializing in gluten-free beer. Off Grid Pale Ale is a pale ale brewed with sorghum extract and brown rice extract for malt to those end. The head is fairly heavy and never quite goes away, leaving a remnant that quite reminds me of sea foam. The nose is sweetish, with a bit of cherry and molasses (which is another of the ingredients in this beer.) The middle has some hoppy notes, a bit of orange and pine, and the malt flavor is grassy and herbal. The finish is quite dry and papery. I don’t know that if I were looking for a gluten free beer this would be my first choice.

I give it a 3 out of 5.
