12oz can in a tulip glass.

Golden yellow color with a modest white cap. Some lacing, lots of bubbles.

The rest of the review I will lump together because all of the beer's IPA attributes come up short: There's weak citrus aroma; the flavor is weak as well, some citrus hop over thin malt; body is light and it lacks hop bitterness.

So, why the middle of the road rating? Because I would not turn it down but I would not seek it out, either.

On tap at Morris Tap and Grill in Randolph. Pours a golden effervescent hue with moderate frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

I had this on draught in a pub. It was served in a tulip glass. It pours a hazy, golden-yellow color with a thin, ecru-colored head and lacing. It's smell is faintly sweet and malty. The taste is neither truly malty nor hoppy and has a hint of citrus. It finishes quite bitter and leaves a bitter aftertaste. This ale is medium-bodied and with an ABV of 6% it's easy to drink. Unfortunately, I don't find the taste to be appealing.

Departed Soles Brewing Co. "Four My Homie"
on tap at the brewery on 1 April 2016

Notes: Gluten free. 6% ABV. Crystal clear deep gold body beneath a bright white head of froth that drops readily. Lacing is limited. Sugary in the nose with floral and fruity character (lychee, mild citrus, peaches in syrup). Nicely balanced but missing "malt". Dry lingering finish with a sweetish note and floral hops. Not bad, particularly for a gluten-free beer (which I always find a bit odd).

On-tap at Departed Soles Brewing Co., Jersey City, NJ

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sorghum are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of sorghum and a slight amount of bitterness. Some hints of citrusy hops are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is perceptible.
O: This gluten-free beer has some aromas and flavors of sorghum, but isn't nearly as "rancid" as some of the other beers out there using 100% gluten-free ingredients.

Serving type: on-tap
