12 oz can poured into pint glass canned on 1/9

A: Nice creamy small bubbled off white head. Body is a hazy light caramel orange.

S: Nice grapefruit, orange, with a little resin and some hints of caramel malts

T: Lots of the orange and grapefruit with a sharp bitter resiny taste then a hefty malt backbone.

M: Nice medium body with a little bit of a carbonation bite, but not overly carbonated. Slight alcohol burn on the finish.

O: This is a nice citrus and malty DIPA. Mostly if you are used to DIPAs with almost no malt characteritics you probably wont care for this. Surprisingly bitter for a DIPA.

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color capped by a nice head that leaves a fair amount of lacing

Smell: Caramel and resinous hop tones; more piney than citrusy

Taste: Caramel sweetness on the front end with a growing resinous bitterness; piney and very bitter, after the swallow, though the residual sweetness never fades; somewhat fruity, in the finish, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A decent DIPA but like all of the Good People beers, it has a bit more sweetness than what I would prefer

Poured into a large snifter at Mason's in Huntsville Al.

A : A very dark caramel color with a huge creamy head. Very robust in appearance.

S: Piney hop is heavy, with only a slight level of sweet malt in the nose.

T : Far more balanced than the smell would indicate. The hops are prevalent, but not overpowering. A middle sweetness leads to a small tingly finish. Only a trace of alcohol is just a minor warming.

M : Thick and heavy. Seems very carbonated, but the body keeps it from being fizzy in the mouth.

D : A delight to drink, but the ABV will shy me away from too many.

Tons of malt. Minimal hop presence. Tastes like a faded MARS. Probably better fresh.

Thanks to the ever generous drabmuh for the gift.

The beer is pretty hazy and appears sunburst orange colored with a gargantuan crafted white head. Excellent head retention with ample lacing plastering the walls of the pint glass.

The aroma is a combo of sweet, fruity malts and resiny pine, with a slight leaning toward pine.

Good flavor. Balanced for sure. This is not a west coast hop bomb, but rather, a well crafted and balanced beer. Alcohol presence is well masked. The finish brings a touch of bitterness that is mitigated by caramel malts and a mild fruit character.

The feel is medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Not particularly aggressive in either the hop or malt domain, but again, a balance of the two. A blue collar DIPA.

Overall, a solid offering. While not among the greats of a highly competitive style, this is an enjoyable and drinkable brew.

12oz can shared by Ravot.

A: Murky orange with a nice white head.

S: Lots of citrus, caramel, and doughy malt in the nose.

T: Pleasantly assertive bitterness, orange and papaya, a bit of earthy tobacco, plenty of toffee and bready notes from the malt.

M: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: This is a pretty good DIPA.
