Pint at the J Clyde. Ugly brown/orange color. Hazy with an ugly head. Aroma is pine like hops. Hop forward with plenty of pine. It’s held up well a good Malty backbone that’s got a touch of toffee to it. Finishes fairly dry. Full bodied brew. Not bad.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a hazy, bright orange with a medium beige head. The aroma is strong citrus and pine hops, with a bit of grain and malt behind. The flavor is very bitter throughout, with little malt balance. The palate is medium to heavy, astringent and acidic, and leaves a long bitter aftertaste. Overall, this is a better and more complex version of the Good People IPA, with all the abruptness of a west coast IPA.

Growler from Liquor Express. Poured a hazy orange with a creamy off-white head that left good lacing. Floral aroma with a caramel backing. The flavor was flipped with mainly caramel and floral backing. Medium body, creamy and a mild bitterness.

Growler from Liquor Express, Huntsville. Brown with slight red tone and almost clear. two finger head that laces the glass. Nose was slightly sour with all the pine/citrus one would expect for an IIPA. Alcohol present all the way through with ample bitterness to counter the sweetness. Very nice, really. Only reason I’m not giving it higher than 4 is the fruit doesn’t really push through the bitterness and alcohol...very good but not great.

Draft at J. Clyde Birmingham AL. Hazy dark gold. Huge citrusy hoppy nose. Taste is the same with a nice firm body. Good beer.

LCBS 2010. Thanks JW. Goldish pour, nice white head. Grapefruit peel in the nose all the way. Flavor has the grapefruit peel, some malty sweetness. Damn good beer.

Had the opportunity to try this great double ipa from a growler. Great citrus nose on this thing, total grapefruit for sure. Has good mouth feel and malt backing. But Im here for the hops and this baby delivers, great double ipa only wish I could get this on tap somewhere local.

Growler shared by Jim I believe, thanks! Poured a hazy yellow gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of bitter pine with a slight grain backbone. Flavor was very similar with bitter pine throughout and a slight grain backbone.
