Tons of rye (by commericial brewery standards) in this one. Columbus hops dominate. Really solid American IPA with balanced bitterness and malt with rye spiciness. Love the hop profile and the absence of any cattiness from the hops. Good People are on the path to greatness.

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.

Visited J. Clyde's in Birmingham based on research from Beer Advocate. Wanted to try some of the brews offered by Good People and they had five on tap. The Mumbai Rye, great name, poured a clear amber color with a nice head and fantastic sticky lacing all the way down the glass. The scent was big hop that dominate the smell. Earthy, spicy, with slight citrus was present. Taste included rye spiciness at the start, but the hops take over the flavor and leave with nice bitterness. Very enjoyable and distinct hops flavor. The mouthfeel is very nice, beer had full body. I could enjoy a couple of these without issue.

S: Bready malts mixed with pine cones and some sweetness. Peppery spices.

T: Biscuit malts with caramel and rye spices.

This is a delicious and interesting brew from the folks at Good People.

A spicy, earthier cousin of their regular IPA, the Mumbai utilizes the natural kick and complexity of the rye to harmonize with the piney notes from the IPAs hoppiness.

I love rye beers and this is one of the best I've had. The rye asserts itself from the get go, but doesn't overwhelm. The hops and malt balance this beauty into complex, but easy drinking suds.

Great aromas of spicy rye and dank hops in the nose.

Dry and clean in the finish, this a beer you'll want to grab for the next once you're done.

A really enjoyable beer overall.

Taste of pine, and a thick mouthfeel. Smooth, but the IBUs are evident. Don't get me wrong this is not a pucker beer, just a delicious taste with a bit more Hops finish. Overall this is a delicious beer, and should be treated if the opportunity arises. I was fortunate enough to be in Birmingham for an evening.
