An excellent offering from Good People. Very hoppy. Even better on tap. I could drink this every day.

Looks and smells fantastic. The hops cut you in the throat after your first sip but that subsides the further you get into it. Very bready/malty/biscuit backbone. Not to much fruit or hops. It's a strange brew, but I did it.

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.
