Let me prefix this review by saying that, although I am from Alabama, I am not some bandwagon beer rater. I will fairly rate ANY and EVERY beer I taste regardless if where it is brewed.
Poured from a 12oz can into a tulip glass.
Pours a semi-hazy copper color with a huge off-white head with great retention and lacing. If you see people complaining about lack of lacing or head, they either poured wrong or didnt get it fresh. This pours perfectly.
Smells like fresh apricots at first. After a few more smells I pick up grapefruit. Some alcohol. Pine notes and some musty hops but very VERY fresh.
Taste is amazing. I'm not an IPA guy. And this is my first double IPA but WOW. Perfectly balanced. Fresh grapefruit at first and then the hops begin to take over. Piney, citrus hops. Resin and pine is alll finish. Alcohol is noted, but not overbearing at all.
Perfectly carbonated. Resin really coats the mouth and leaves that pine feel and taste in the back of the throat.
This beer is great. Would definitely buy again and will. Really took for granted how readily available this is when it ships but man, this is such a great beer. Well worth the try.
Serving type: can

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
