4.4/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark orange and slightly hazy. Minimum carbonation. Small head but a strong one with some lacing.

S: Lots of citrus hops and piney resin. Some caramel malt. Honey. Not a huge aroma coming from it but it smells good.

T: Very refreshing taste. Very crisp and well balanced. One of the less resiny/bitter American IPAs I’ve tried but it is delicious. Fair amount of caramel toasted malt and honey comes through. No bad aftertaste.

M: Light body but not watery. I was expecting to want more carbonation but it was a great amount and gave the beer a very refreshing character.

O: Very drinkable. A session beer.

Poured from the can into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a finger of fluffy, off white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. The head sticks around pretty well.

Smell: Sweet malt with a nice hop punch up front. Citrus peel bitterness along with a citrus juice note. I'm getting some mild apricot.

Taste: A strong citrus peel hop bitterness with a good amount of malt sweetness to balance things out. The finish is very bitter. Overall I would say that this one is a bit one dimensional.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this beer was good but not very exciting. I might have another one, but I wouldn't search it out.

12 ounce can. Aroma is floral, piney and grassy. Smell is very fresh. The store I got it from said it just came in so I assume it's quite fresh. Wish there was a born on date however. Taste is also fresh and grassy, slight malt sweetness on the back end. Not overly bitter on the taste but nicely hopped. Satisfyingly so. Slight alcohol in the taste, but easy to drink. Not the most delicious Ipa on earth but no I have no complaints.

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.

Big thanks to Reaper16 for the extra!

A- Slightly hazy amber body with a thick fluffy off-white head.

S- Hops are noticeable, but not dominate. Pine, some citrus, along with a bready malt aroma.

T- Hops do not stand out, malt is very noticeable and the alcohol comes through way too much for a 7% beer.

M- Has a sharp bite, along with high carbonation levels.

O- I appreciate both hop-forward and balanced IPAs, but this one does not really fit into either. Not a good IPA.
