Beer Style: India Pale Ale 
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons


As to the name - I have always loved birds and while the American Goldfinch is a beautiful bird, the name of this beer comes from the American Roasted Millet Malt and Goldfinch Millet Malt.

Hops schedule look familiar? It is the same hops schedule as the Fantastic Floyd's IPA. The idea for the recipe was essentially "How could this recipe have been designed differently three to four years ago if we knew as much about gluten free malts then as we do now?"

We liked this version of the recipe well enough that we wanted to share it with you. But we may continue working on this recipe a bit more before we consider replacing the current IPA recipe kit with whatever we come up with. Regardless, please enjoy!
