This is a good tasting beer. It smells great and has a hearty bitterness that feels perfect.
I had heard an interview with Good People reps on the Beer Guys Radio show and ran out to Ale Yeah Decatur as soon as I had found out some of their product had landed here in Atlanta. It lives up to the expectations.

A solid offering from Good People! A somewhat subdued hop profile on the nose. Lemon and grassy hops balance with a malty sweetness. The taste is way more pronounced. Pineapple, apple tartness, and light citrus notes prevail. A quick, hoppy dryness takes over the back end. The body is a little heavy for this IPA. I feel like it either needs a little more booze to be a DIPA or a little less malt to make it a bit more sessionable. Its kind of stuck in the middle.

Overall, this is a really nice IPA. Good People makes good beer and this is no exception.

Not a fan unfortunately. Worst IPA I've ever had.

Thumbs up. Just the right amount of hops for my taste with a great "feel." This was a recommended growler fill at a cool place called "The Filling Station" in Nashville. Made for a nice porch sitting beverage.
