I picked up a 4 pack of New Planet's Off Grid IPA yesterday and it was so nasty I had to wash it down with Red Bridge. Plus it was $9 for 4 beers. Ridiculous.

I have been buying Green's dubbel at TotalWine. I LOVE it.

Personally, I've found that freshness is probably one of the biggest factors in the quality of gluten free beers. There isn't much in the way of GF beer available locally, so at times when I've found a different GF beer in some strange place (almost always dusty bottles on the bottom shelf at some store), I've bought it, but several times now I've thought it was nasty...and later when I've gotten one at a higher volume store (usually in Minneapolis), it has been way better.

New Planet Tread Lightly Ale (their Blonde Ale) is my absolute favorite but at 9$ for a 4 pack, it'll break the bank. I'm trying to homebrew a clone, but in the meantime, I'm stuck paying for the sweet nectar.

Cloning New Planet's Blonde shouldn't be too difficult. There's nothing fancy to it, just sorghum, corn sugar, orange peel, and Cascade hops. 15 IBUs, 5% ABV, dead-simple, I'm sure.

I haven't sampled GF beers very widely, but since it hasn't been mentioned yet here, I have to say that my girlfriend and I both enjoyed Sprecher's Shakparo. Definitely "malt" forward, and fuller-bodied than other GF beers I've had.

I have a recommendation: don't buy Tweason ale! Blech! I bought a 4 pack of that this past weekend--I'd never had it before but heard good things. EIther my batch was skunked or that stuff is just plain bad.

I live in San Diego and am an avid IPA consumer, sorry was, now I'm gluten free and the only "almost" gluten free beer I enjoy, because it's mildly hoppy, is Omission Pale Ale (a subsidiary of Widmer).

But, important to note depending on your sensitivity, this beer is gluten reduced to 20 ppm. It is not gluten free.

Very tasty though compared to other GF beer.
