Good People Juco Southern IPA is the latest summer seasonal from the Birmingham, Alabama brewery.
If you aren’t familiar with the term, “Juco” is short for junior college. The hop-forward offering is a quite sessionable 4.2% alcohol by volume. (Translation: Good for all-day drinking.) This beer rocks flavors of pine and lemon zest thanks to generous doses of Columbus, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Equinox.
Talk about a rush of hop flavor. This beer is as hoppy and dank as the 6% to 7% IPAs that folks are standing in line for. The “session IPA” season hits full swing when the temperature rises. Great news for your liver. There have been some really good ones, but we haven’t been floored until this beer. Don’t look for a thin or watery beer in this can. JUCO is that bold hop flavor you need in an IPA that won’t leave you floating facedown in the pool after an afternoon of drinking. Think of it as adding a little “class” to your summer.
Scoring high grades in flavor and hoppy taste, JUCO isn’t worried about achieving a lower ABV than our flagship IPA. In fact that’s what a chill summer class is all about. This may be the best 6 beers of your life.
