BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy amber with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Nice aroma of grapefruit and caramel with a light floral backing. The flavor found caramel and grapefruit. Medium body and medium bitterness.

Draft. Poured a hazy copper with a small off-white head. Aroma: hops, malt, pine, citrus. Taste: pine & citrus hops, passing notes of vanilla, fresh fruits, solid malt backbone, finishes with a nice bitter bite. Medium body, good depth, great lacing. Overall a excellent IPA.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Pours slightly hazy orange with a decent beige head. Aroma of grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is nice with mild pine, grapefruit, and orange rind. A bit thin, needs more malt. Dry finish.

On cask @ J. Clyde. Takes on a different character on cask. Server swears it is a different recipe than the regular IPA, and given the other ratings I’m inclined to believe him. Orange with a dense tam head. Big floral aroma. Perfect mouthfeel, with pleasant hop and malt balance; bitter without the astringency. Best from AL so far.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Pleasant aroma of citrus and hops. Very bitter with a hint of floral hops. The bitterness overpowered everything, though. Holdenn said it perfectly: "Lots of bitter hops but not many flavor hops." Unless you’re a huge fan of IPA across the board, this is not an easy or particularly enjoyable sipper.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2009
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.

benself (11) - gardendale, Alabama, USA - MAY 15, 2009
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.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2009
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.

Peterlemonjelo (42) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2009
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).
