(Had on cask at The Nook's (Huntsville, AL) third anniversary party.)

Poured a bright orange, very odd for the usually more subdued copper/amber pale ales; very little head and no lacing. Very hop cloying scent, huge citrus and slight grassy, but with no malt backing. Same for the flavor; had a huge hop flavor up front with a cloying citrus hop aftertaste without enough body to mellow it out. Went down smooth, but very sub-par for a cask ale.

on tap at The Nook in Huntsville, AL

A- light amber w/ good clarity for an IPA. a finger of white head reduces to a film and collar. decently heavy lacing

S- pale malts mix with the rye to create a nice biscuit like aroma. some floral hops are about all I pick up besides that. quite muted in the aroma and lacking the citrus components I love in the nose of an IPA.

T- an improvement from the nose. pale and rye malts blend in the beginning. not very bitter at all. the rye shines again in the finish though, and almost reminds me of the character of sour mash whiskey.

M- light/medium body. crisp and refreshing. could be a great summer beer.

D- goes down super easy. no challenging flavors get in the way of taking this one down with speed

Served in a pint glass at the brewpub. From notes. Reviewed 23 November 2014.
4/4/3.5/4/3.75
Finger of head. Golden, translucent.
Thai food? Spicy (rye?) with fruit and fantastic hops.
Goodish, but not great. definitely bitter, but with a subtle, tangy finish. Lightly dry. The tang is strange.
Full bodied and hoppy.
Good beer, notably rye-y, but still worthwhile. Would drink again, but not often.

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.

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.
