Generously provided growler via Ben. Thank you very much for the opportunity! Shared with my brother while alternately watching our Chicago based baseball teams shit the bed. At least tomorrow's 1oo degree golfing will quell what ails us.

Pours a clear dark amber with a nice consistent cover and some spotted lacing. Looks a bit darker than expected.

Smell is quite malt forward. Reminiscent of caramel drizzled red apple with some booze and spice...cinnamon?...on the back end.

Heavy caramel, pine, some middlin' bitterness, and red apple skins and some air exposed fleshiness. Malts wash over the finish.

Mouthfeel is off. Carbonation is lacking and the body is medium and sticky.

Overall, I'm not sure I get this as an IPA. A decent attempt, but something is off in the presentation.

Another solid offering from People's. I wish that this beer was their flagship IPA. Very hop forward and definitely has that grapefruit rind character in a well developed IPA. Great citrus notes, drinks really well and overall finishes clean. Much, much better than Moundbuilder.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of pineapple, hint of piney hops, sweet malt, citrus hops, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a distinct dryness. Tastes of strong citrus hops, floral hops, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, too sharp, strong body, and a slight metallic feel.

A: Copper-colored with a clean, clear translucence. A short layer of tan cream sits atop the body.

S: Hops come out thick and resinous: strong notes of pine sap, passionfruit, melon. They expand over a malt base, dark with wheat toast and doughy biscuit aromas. Lots of contrast in the nose – I like it.

T: Just like the nose, the palate is a juxtaposition of dank, oily Simcoe and grainy malt. The front end is packed with pine nut and grapefruit, a hop flavor that lays thick on the tongue. Soon after, it tightens to a bright, lemony bitterness (almost soapy at times) and you get the drop: that sudden rush of malt flavor that puts the bitterness in wonderful perspective. Here, those malts are roasted and bready, pushing the palate to a husky, natural grain aftertaste.

M: Quite chewy for a beer with only 6.5% alcohol, but it’s certainly not unwelcome. Noticeable carbonation, though it seems slow-acting: it picks up only after the creaminess of the body has settled on the tongue, like a beer on cask. Interesting.

O: One of People’s finest brews; I really enjoy the interplay between the toasted malt and the fruity hops. This is a thick one, though, so I couldn’t exactly see myself going for more than a pint. But when it comes to good beer, sometimes that’s all you need.

I bought a bottle of this off the single shelf at Binnys. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent is malty with some bitter hops. The taste is bitter through but easy to drink. There is sweet malt at the front then a bitter citrus finish. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.
