Visited J. Clyde's in Birmingham based on research from Beer Advocate. Wanted to try some of the brews offered by Good People and they had five on tap. The Mumbai Rye, great name, poured a clear amber color with a nice head and fantastic sticky lacing all the way down the glass. The scent was big hop that dominate the smell. Earthy, spicy, with slight citrus was present. Taste included rye spiciness at the start, but the hops take over the flavor and leave with nice bitterness. Very enjoyable and distinct hops flavor. The mouthfeel is very nice, beer had full body. I could enjoy a couple of these without issue.

(Had on cask at The Nook's (Huntsville, AL) third anniversary party.)

Poured a bright orange, very odd for the usually more subdued copper/amber pale ales; very little head and no lacing. Very hop cloying scent, huge citrus and slight grassy, but with no malt backing. Same for the flavor; had a huge hop flavor up front with a cloying citrus hop aftertaste without enough body to mellow it out. Went down smooth, but very sub-par for a cask ale.

Growler, big thanks to Stacey & Michael from Huntsville for sharing!

Pours clear amber with a two finger off white head that leaves a bunch of spotty and drippy lacing and holds a good cap.

Hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, grassy & floral with a shot of rye to go along with it, very good strength.

Flavor is more pine, citrus fruit and rind, very nice spicy rye kick, a dash of caramel malt sweetness, followed by moderate bitterness, dry, lingering finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, almost creamy, low to medium carbonation.

One of the better Rye Beers I've had and a great hop kick to play along with it. My first Good People brew and I'm quite impressed!

32 ounce growler -> Highlands Brewing snifter

A - medium to dark amber with a foamy one finger head that is the color of lemon meringue. Retention is basically limited to a thin ring and there is a moderate amount of lacing.

S - very bready, with some pine, and floral notes as well.

T - the caramel malts contain a lemon like sourness giving way to a big rye bready finish.

M - nice and thick with decent levels of carbonation.

O - If you can get this stuff by all means do. It isn't canned yet, but it is worth seeking out.

on tap at The Nook in Huntsville, AL

A- light amber w/ good clarity for an IPA. a finger of white head reduces to a film and collar. decently heavy lacing

S- pale malts mix with the rye to create a nice biscuit like aroma. some floral hops are about all I pick up besides that. quite muted in the aroma and lacking the citrus components I love in the nose of an IPA.

T- an improvement from the nose. pale and rye malts blend in the beginning. not very bitter at all. the rye shines again in the finish though, and almost reminds me of the character of sour mash whiskey.

M- light/medium body. crisp and refreshing. could be a great summer beer.

D- goes down super easy. no challenging flavors get in the way of taking this one down with speed

Tons of rye (by commericial brewery standards) in this one. Columbus hops dominate. Really solid American IPA with balanced bitterness and malt with rye spiciness. Love the hop profile and the absence of any cattiness from the hops. Good People are on the path to greatness.
