Good Good 2.0 from Sole Artisan Ales

by Jack Cubberly

Good Good 2.0 is the new and improved version of Søle Artisan Ale’s original Good Good last brewed just about a year ago. It is a Northeast double IPA, double dry hopped with loads of Citra and Mosaic hops. This beer is dank, hazy and juicy to say the least and at 9% ABV it’s dangerously crushable.

It pours strong with a tint of orange haze, slightly darker than their recent beers. The head is a bright white but dissipates quickly, hardly leaving any residue on the glass. The aroma smells strongly of oats up front then settles with a sweeter pineapple and citrus juiciness.

At first sip the light carbonation gives a pillowy mouth feel which makes this beer refreshing and quite drinkable. The low carbonation and IBUs allows for the oat malts to power through and nicely pair with the citrus and piney flavors given off by the intense amount of dry hops.

Overall this beer is a masterful blend of pale, crystal and oat malts with plentiful late additions of Citra and Mosaic hops. A pleasant ripe taste lingers in your mouth after each sip, making this beer one of the best from Søle and well worth the six hour wait in the rain.  Look out for Søle to be opening their own location in Easton, PA in spring of 2017.
