Got this upon recommendation at the brewery and thought my taste buds just got rocked!

A - Great orange-copper color. Low white head with light lacing. Clear beer.

S - Very pungent hop aroma with great notes of citrus and pine really coming through. Some slight graininess but mostly covered by the hoppiness.

T - Great hop flavor that shines through with an amazing pine and grapefruit character. It's sweet up front with some orange and resin that are also there. This beer seems to have a more pronounced hop flavor profile instead of a muddled hop bomb that makes me enjoy it even more. Smooth with a solid hop bitterness to finish crisp. Some malt in the middle of it with a nice sweetness to give balance.

M - Medium to light mouth-feel with the tones of sweetness but bitterness to cut it cleaner. Moderate carbonation also helps with the sweetness.

Overall, one of my favorite IPAs. If you've never had a piney mixed with citrus brew this a great beer to try. Awesome blend of pine/citrus hops and malt for an IPA. I'd drink it every day to give my hops thirst a quench. Every time you burp you get a taste of that memorable hop flavor.

A: Copper-colored with a clean, clear translucence. A short layer of tan cream sits atop the body.

S: Hops come out thick and resinous: strong notes of pine sap, passionfruit, melon. They expand over a malt base, dark with wheat toast and doughy biscuit aromas. Lots of contrast in the nose – I like it.

T: Just like the nose, the palate is a juxtaposition of dank, oily Simcoe and grainy malt. The front end is packed with pine nut and grapefruit, a hop flavor that lays thick on the tongue. Soon after, it tightens to a bright, lemony bitterness (almost soapy at times) and you get the drop: that sudden rush of malt flavor that puts the bitterness in wonderful perspective. Here, those malts are roasted and bready, pushing the palate to a husky, natural grain aftertaste.

M: Quite chewy for a beer with only 6.5% alcohol, but it’s certainly not unwelcome. Noticeable carbonation, though it seems slow-acting: it picks up only after the creaminess of the body has settled on the tongue, like a beer on cask. Interesting.

O: One of People’s finest brews; I really enjoy the interplay between the toasted malt and the fruity hops. This is a thick one, though, so I couldn’t exactly see myself going for more than a pint. But when it comes to good beer, sometimes that’s all you need.

Another solid offering from People's. I wish that this beer was their flagship IPA. Very hop forward and definitely has that grapefruit rind character in a well developed IPA. Great citrus notes, drinks really well and overall finishes clean. Much, much better than Moundbuilder.
