Looking for some decent gluten free IPA, like the American hop bomb style. Does it exist?? Cheers

Any recipe or kit can be made GF (actually but not certified) by the addition of ClarityFerm
It appears to have no effect on the flavour.

This one is about 17 million times better than any others I've tasted:

Stone Brewing Co, the San Diego brewer of Arrogant Bastard and other legendary beers has made their first "reduced gluten beer." Check-out this link for a great commentary, video, etc. They basically fashioned a delicious IPA as they always do, with 100% barley, none of the usual gluten-free substitutes such rice, quinoa, sorghum, buckwheat. They used their normal ale yeast plus White Lab Clarity-Ferm.

I doubt Stone Delicious IPA is yet available on your side of the pond, but I've had it and it's delicious. I can vouch that it doesn't "lessen" the beer in any way. 7.7% abv, 80 IBU.
