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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Growler from Highland Package Store. Poured a cloudy, orange/red with very thin off-white head (cloudiness turns to almost clear as it settles down). Aroma: Pine, hoppy, sweet malts citrus. Taste: Pine, citrus, very hoppy, caramel malt, maybe some spice. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, long finish with a good bite. Good depth & balance. Overall a very good DIPA. Very happy as this is a local brewery. Also, when I bought this it was listed as having a 8.5 abv (abv not listed in RB description).

Growler from Dee’s Package. Pours a rich orange and a white rocky head. Aroma was overpoweringly tart, couldn’t really tell what I was smelling except I knew it was an IPA. Taste is very strong, dry hops, loads of citrus, and a lot of malt. Finished surprisingly smooth. Packs a real punch of flavor, and a really good brew overall.

Good People is shaping up to be a really good brewery, and snake handler is no exception. It is a malt forward DIPA. The aroma is malt and grapefruit. The grapefruit is very forward. This is a pretty well balanced DIPA. It’s clear that the hop additions are later, and favor less bitter varieties. Little thin on the mouthfeel but very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours a hazy dark amber. Big malt backbone in both the aroma and flavor. Needs it to stand up to the hops. Very floral, piney in the aroma; loads of grapefruit and bitterness in the flavor. A little bit of pleasant sourness lurking in there as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the j Clyde. Dark amber pour with a thick, sudsy offwhite head and good lacing. Aromas of piney And bittering hops. Up front there is balanced maltiness that quickly leads to grapefruit hops with a floral note. There is also a pleasent sour quality. There is a long, back-of-the-tongue bitterness to finish. Smooth mouthfeel, although it could use a little more carbonation. One of my favorite Good People offerings.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a slightly hazy copper-amber with an average head - rather appealing. Aroma is strongly hoppy and has a good evergreen component, promising a worthy IPA. Flavor matches the aroma, being richly hoppy, slightly evergreen and just a little bit fruity. Texture is lively and fizzy. Recommended to all IPA fans.
