To can or not to can? That is indeed no question when it comes to Good People. The long awaited debut of GP in cans has been met with solid enthusiasm from the public; and with good reason. As any of you beer geeks know, modern cans offer a fantastic medium for beer transmission. Good People have utilized this to great effect for their IPA and Brown Ale beers. This can delivers crisp, clean, hoppy awesomeness with every sip. Recently I suffered a horrendous kitchen accident and spent hours in the ER getting stitched up. Upon my exit, the first stop I made on the way home was a six-pack of IPA goodness to sooth my jangled nerves. Soaking in a luxurious bath, I enjoyed a cool (NOT COLD!) IPA, which possessed better bubbles than the water I was in. The hoppy aromatherapy was just the ticket to shake the trauma from my mind. The citrusy, fruity taste danced on my tongue with the well-balanced malty sugars and then departed quickly leaving a pleasant memory where they had been. I suggest this beer for anyone, whether having a bad day or not, as a means of mental stabilization. Enjoy, beer drinkers. :)

a very tasty brew from the local area I grew up in. Very proud of these Alabama boys and the progress they have made. It has a very smoothe hoppy flavor. The packaging is 100% recyclable which is a bonus and unusual to see. Definitely stands out on the shelf, and in the fridge. Great flavor, great appearance, great packaging, great everything.

Great IPA! From Alabama? Who ever heard of a good beer from Alabama? Only from Good People brewery!

Reminds me of sweetwater ipa, very happy but not a crazy 8% alcohol.

Smells great, tastes great, suggested by the bartender who makes a living on tips. Give it a try.

By far my favorite IPA so far. Pair it with anything or pair it with nothing. Always good! It has a bittersweet smell and a very bitter taste. You can really taste the hops! Whatever they do to make this beer, its working! The sweet forward flavor and the biiter bite of an aftertaste are great!

12oz can gifted from co-worker and his wife. Thanks E & N!.

Poured into a stein, formed a 3/4" orangey beige head over the cloudy orangey amber brew. Head fizzes away at a reasonable pace, with leggy but minimal lace. Aroma is pretty intense citrus and pine.

Taste is sweet to start, juicy citrus in the middle, pine bitter bite through the close, with lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very smooth, and drinkability is great. Happy with this first offering tried from Good People.
