Hoppy with a clean finish. The hop is very present but not overpowering with mid taste charisma. One of my favorite local beers. Found mostly on tap. It is hard to have a glass of this then drop back to an ale.

Finally found cans! Awesome head on the pour. Nice aroma as well. Mostly juicy tasting. Stays with you on the palate after each sip. Great DIPA for this region...if you can find it.

Tasty...strong IPA, a little less hoppy than anticipated.

Poured on tap into a snifter

Clear russet, great lacings

Great fresh hop tropical aroma

Hops on the side and back of the tongue

Lingering bitter aftertaste, 10%abv is well hidden

Nice start to my introduction to Good people
