Solid canned IPA from Good People. Herbal pine and grapefruit aroma. Smooth citrus fruity bitterness that turns a little earthy in the finish. It's clean and drinkable for the strength. I'd have another.

Just the right balance of taste and bitterness. One of my favorite IPAs.

Hoppy enough to give you that crisp taste, but smooth enough to drink all day long!

The nose is very green with a slight citrus.

It’s green on the front with that piney, grassy presence and a nice grapefruit/citrus mix in there as well to give it just a slight sweetness under all that green forwardness. The malty balance brings a dryness but you still get the full force of the hops on the backside. It's not an overly bitter finish, but it's there with the malts.

Mouthfeel is light to medium. Very smooth to drink.

Overall I really like this IPA, I feel it's one of the better IPAs from Alabama breweries. It leans to the green side of IPAs, which I prefer.

Appearance - Poured into a snifter to reveal a hazy, golden brew with an off-white 2 finger head sitting atop. Fair retention, giving way to a thin, broken layer of surface suds. Lacing clings to the sides in rings and chunks, and exhibits strong stick.

Smell - Distinct aroma that hits on pineapple juice, floral and citrus hop notes and a caramel malt base.

Taste - More reserved in the flavor than what's found on the nose. Not much in the way of bitterness, instead opting for slightly sweet, juicy notes of orange and pineapple. Light caramel malt body. Finish is much the same.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate, slightly tingly carbonation. Smooth, easy drinking brew. Semi-dry finish.

Overall - Solid IPA. Nice flavor profile, but seems to lack that extra umph to take it that next level. Safe might be a good description. I could definitely stand to drink this again, but I wouldn't trade for it.
