Had on tap....

A- Pours a orange-ish color. One finger white head shows medium retention. Some ring style lacing with hints of streaky lacing once the beer is getting drank.

S- Juicy tropical hop aroma in this beer. I mean these really seem to just jump out overtaking all other aromas. Light malty undertones come and go but this is all hop forward which I like a lot.

T- Nice kick of citrusy hops in the front of the beer is wanting to destroy my palate right off the get go. Middle of the beer the base malt really shines with a light caramel bready presence. This does jump right back into the citrus hops with a light bitter kick on the backend. I really enjoy how well this is put together and not over the top but still very much in your face flavorwise.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Citrus hops really just dominate everything from the palate to the aftertaste. There is a light alcohol presence in the aftertaste but even this is mostly covered by the hops. A hop forward beer and it is balanced (or lack there of)to this style. No off flavors at all were present. Medium high alcohol drying on the palate.

D- This beer was very drinkable. A palate crusher in the terms that it will crush any other beer you decide to drink after. ABV is in the middle ground which makes it a nice drinker but a little dangerous.

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.

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.
