12oz canned Jan 23, 2012. Super fresh. Served at around 45F.
Pours lightly hazy orange with a good light tan head that leaves pretty lacing and holds a good cap.
Aroma features tons of citrus hops, particularly orange and tangerine, but also some grapefruit, apricot, floral hops, hints of grass and pine with a good caramel malt presence that plays nicely with the hops.
Flavor also features tons of orange and tangerine citrus with more grapefruit than the nose, resinous hops, a little pine, good caramel malt backbone offering a bit of sweetness to combat the good bitterness on the finish. A bit of alcohol detected, but not bad at all for over 9%.
Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied, creamy, a bit sticky with nice carbonation.
Really impressive stuff. Very juicy DIPA, very drinkable. Quite a treat!
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
