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.

Picked up a 12oz can in a trade from Alabama. Poured into a 9oz crystal tumbler.

Pours a fairly clean light amber hue with golden edges when held up to a light source, fatty white head with really good retention and lacing for days. Smell is sweet and bready giving way to light grassy grapefruit notes, fresh and earthy. Taste is similar to the nose but thankfully the hop truly shines through being the dominant flavor with a nice blast of grapefruit and sappy bitter goodness, malt is there but just to balance. Disappointed a little in the mouthfeel, it's a bit weak for an IPA and especially one with such a hop blast, a bigger body would really let the hop linger for a while.

Overall a real tasty IPA in the West Coast tradition. I was pleasantly surprised by this one, not expecting it to be so hop forward. I could sit on these all night at the bar and be just fine with that.

I finally get to try something from Good People.

Clouded amber brown with a thick head that leaves a lot of lacing. Hops galore on the flavor profile. Chewy piney hops with salty resin tones. Thick and meaty. Smooth feel with a bit of a biting carbonation. I like it.

The copper coloring is light almost to an apricot and the appearance is cloudy and almost murky. The head rose in a billowing layer of marangue like foam that left a thick sticky lacing.

The citrus aromas are sweet, thick and pulpy. Tons of grapefruit and lemon can be found with a natural sour and bitterness.

The flavor is sweet with lemon juice and grapefruit pith. The sour flavors are held at bay by a caramel malt sweetness and a tea leaf character to the barley. This IPA blends so well but then showcases a phenomenal citrus hop character.

The feel is thick, lightly astringent and has moderate carbonation.

For a non-Imperial IPA this has great character, great variety and just flat tastes good.
