COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper in color with herbal and earthy hops being most prevalent. Light caramel flavors balance out this unique ale. Hop lovers will enjoy this unfiltered, dry-hopped IPA.

Sample at DLD ’09. Murky orange with small off-white head. Aroma is malt forward with dull citrus and light hops. Flavor is once again dull hops, not exactly fresh, and somewhat grassy and caramel. Medium body. I would like to try this fresh.

I had this beer for the first time at the J. Clyde in Birmingham. The beer pours up with big, rocky head and has a deep ruddy hue. The aroma is rather intensely peppery and floral. The taste is terrific willamette IPA and it shows. It has a strong herbal spiciness, followed by a moderate floral aftertaste that really lingers. Singing backup is a rich, malty sweetness that makes this beer very drinkable.

Perhaps slightly better in its crispness than the Good People Pale Ale, the IPA is citrusy, but to my taste, not a whole lot going on here either. Pretty drinkable and this was my wife’s favourite of the Good People brews.

Had this one draft @ the J. Clyde after drinking their Pale Ale. I’m a big fan of drinking a brewery’s Pale Ale followed by their respective IPA to note differences/similarities. A - Pours a very nice rich orange/copper color with a generous head and plenty of lacing down the glass. S - Plenty of deep hop aromas of a spicy citrus flower bouquet. Very nice. T - Really enjoyed the flavor. Full of spicy/earthy/floral flavors with generous bitterness. This is certainly a hop dominated taster but does have some malt sweetness show up to balance it out a little. Not just a hopped up extension of their Pale Ale, truly a unique IPA. M - Nice feeling beer. Not too thin and not too hefty. Carbonation and head are very appropriate for the style. D - Certainly an IPA and not one for those that aren’t fond of the style, but a sessionable beer for those that fancy an IPA (I had several).

Thanks to the good people for this pour. Orange yellow in color with a beige head. Fresh malt dominates the aroma with citrus and hops barely coming through. Citrus grain flavors and grassy hops. Bitter and grassy finish. Lots of bitter hops but not many flavor hops.

Butters (3766) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Draft pours a hazy dark gold with nice lacing. Piney and flora hop nose with well rounded balanced hop flavor and decent bitterness with a lingering bitter finish. Average IPA.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2009
On tap. Poured a hazy golden orange color with a two finger white head. The aroma was floral hops and a bit of malt. The flavor was well balanced, with a good malt base and a pine and citrus finish. This wasn’t the best one of their beers, but a very average beer overall.

On tap at the J. Clyde. Hazy orange apperance. Aroma of floral hops. Nice citrus hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel. I was expecting zero from this beer and was very surprised. Living in AL and all the crappy beer and beer laws we have, this was very refreshing. Finally a brewery in this state can brew a decent beer!! Now get this stuff in bottles!!

Shag (2608) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 21, 2008
An orange appearance with a white head. The aroma contains some pine, oranges, and caramel. The flavor is rather bitter with some pine, oranges, caramel. A good malt presence in this one as well. Overall a nice beer
