3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours hazy amber with creamy head, white in color, leaves behind no lacing. Floral aroma, some pine, a little dank. Caramel as well. Taste is good and bitter, with enough sweetness up front to keep it in check. Medium full body, texture on the thick side, average carbonation. Overall - a totally solid ipa.

From the can, bitch. Orange with a sticky white head. Nose is fruits, grapefruit, mango, peach, and some evident pines. Flavor is some caramels, bread sweetness, with a punchy bitterness. Really nice IPA with solid fruits.

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.
