Good People recently released this beer in cans and I was eager to try it out, as I enjoyed it so much on tap. This beer pours up with a creamy head and a warm amber hue. The aroma is loaded with sweet orange, floral, and pine notes. The flavor is full of orange and lemon zest, honeysuckle, fresh grass, and maybe a little grapefruit. The mouthfeel is excellent, coating every taste bud for hours. While not especially bitter, this beer is a palette wrecker. Enjoy it while it lasts; I understand they're only canning it once a quarter!

Serving type: can

North Carolina

3.66/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color capped by a nice head that leaves a fair amount of lacing

Smell: Caramel and resinous hop tones; more piney than citrusy

Taste: Caramel sweetness on the front end with a growing resinous bitterness; piney and very bitter, after the swallow, though the residual sweetness never fades; somewhat fruity, in the finish, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A decent DIPA but like all of the Good People beers, it has a bit more sweetness than what I would prefer

Serving type: on-tap
