L-Nice amberish-orange murky ipa with a solid one finger head.
S-I get a strong boozy smell with a piney/floral and citrusy smell that comes afterwards.
T-I really do enjoy the taste. It came off as a bit bitter at first, but as I continued to drink it I was pleasantly surprised with great flavors of biscuit, citrus, and pine.
F-The carbonation works well with the flavor of the beer. Moderate enough to make the drinking easy.
O-Overall, a really good ipa. To me, this beer is either on the highest end of mediocre ipas or the lowest end of great ipas. There isn't anything special, but they know how to brew at Good People. If you're in Birmingham, I would stop by and check these guys out. Solid ipa.

Looks the same as every other IPA
Bready with a little citrus juice smell
Very woody and bready taste, a little pine, malt, a little corn, some citrus
Light and clean feel
Not much flavor, but what is there is pleasant enough. Drinks like a light beer which is surprising at this ABV

Poured from the tap at Good People Brewing. Great people! Great beer. The appearance is an orange copper color, with a medium sized white head. The aroma was of hops and pine in the beginning and ending with some citrus. The flavor matched the aroma.

Appearance: Hazy copper color. Small head with little lacing.
Odor: Citrus and subtle floral notes with a nice malt foundation
Taste: Lovely citrus and floral hop front with a finish of pine and malt. The malt and hops are paired very well.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation.
Overall: The good people at Good People have really done a great job with this one. This IPA is a standout beer with a lot to offer. Highly recommended.

Light copper in color. A mid-hoped IPA that doesn't assault the taste buds. Very smooth, very drinkable. A very good find. Had it canned in Birmingham.
