Copper in color with herbal and earthy hops being most prevalent. Light caramel flavors balance out this unique ale. Hop lovers will enjoy this unfiltered, dry-hopped IPA.

This one is solid across the board. Most world-class IPAs are at least a little over 6% ABV, meaning we don't get them in AL. Thus we are limited to a very tiny selection of IPAs here, many of them exceedingly average or worse.

So i enthusiastically welcome the release of Good People IPA. It's only been available for about a week now, at a tiny handful of establishments. But it's absolutely worth seeking out. It's packed with hoppy goodness. I've been told the most prominent hop in this one is Willamette, with at least one other not being mentioned.

It's a beautiful copper color with a thick creamy head. The smell is a somewhat restrained floral hoppyness. And the taste follows through with a very potent floral punch, backed by a light caramel maltiness. This contrasts markedly with many American IPAs which are so heavy with pine and citrus notes. Honestly, in many ways this reminds me of an English IPA in terms of flavor characteristics, but with much more (typically American) intensity. Much more bitter and in your face, which is exactly what i look for in an IPA, my favorite style.

Wouldn't score high on drinkability with many Alabama residents who have little to no exposure to great American IPAs, but i had two of these and could easily have kept going.
