Got in a BIF from KMitch. 12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/25/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep golden/orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy cream colored head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and rye/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness; and rye spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, melon, citrus peel/rind, wood, peppercorn, pine, cracker, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and rye/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness and rye spiciness balance; with no astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and rye spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and fairly crisp/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7.4%. Overall this is an excellent rye IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and rye/bready malt flavors; very smooth, easy, and fairly crisp to drink with the modestly bitter/spicy/resinous/drying finish, not overly aggressive. Great classic Columbus/Mt Hood profile. Balanced juicy, dank, and earthy hop complexity; great rye/bready malt backbone, mild residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

6-pack cans. Got this in Florida.

I finished the last one almost a year ago.

I remember that it was a very nice beer, with a little bit of character, perhaps from adding rye to the malt bill?

12 oz can at the 2017 Decatur Beer Festival.
Hazy deep amber body with a fine white head. Fruity, lightly dank and piney flavor.
Lively carbonation in a medium body.

I had the Good People Mumbai Rye on tap at the Mellow Mushroom located at the 5 Points area in Birmingham.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is a chill hazed dark copper with a decent white head. It has nice lacing.

The nose is of light spice and some grains.

The beer leads with some pine based bitterness, a hint of Rye and something earthy in the finish.

The mouth is thinner than I would like but it does make it somewhat sessionable.

I really like Rye beers and this is not a bad take on the style

Poured into a snifter. A slightly hazy amber-orange color with a modest off-white head. On the malty side but with spicy rye notes and not sweet. The hoppy aromas were muted, with some citrus and piney notes. The taste followed the nose with bitter pine, orange pith, and lemon rind all surrounded by a spicy rye blanket. Well-balanced and not sweet. Dry finish.
