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

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.

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

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!

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.
