The GoodLife in deed! Descender is delicious and refreshing. It pours a natural honey color with an off-white cap. It is very aromatic. Smells citrusy, and slightly herbal. Flavor is fresh... Hops, citrus, notes of herbal goodness. It is sweet. Maybe primed with honey or molasses. Solid IPA. I want to try more from this brewer.

Pours honey in color with a good sized head. Good retention and lace. Great nose of sweet malt with big pine and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with a cereal/grainy mid-palate. Medium body, average carbonation, dry-creamy texture, and a hoppy, oily, dry-bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12-oz. can. Nice nose of very sweet orange and a bunch of typical hop notes - alfalfa, basil, and pine. Pours an amber orange with not much head. Orange and grapefruit are the first horses out of the gate for the flavor before a piney, herbal bitterness charges to the forefront. Very crisp, light palate with a dry, grassy finish. A good summertime IPA - refreshing while pleasantly bitter.
