In short: A dry herbal/grassy/fruity golden IPA with discreet biscuity malts. Average.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase. Bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Almost clear golden body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is dank fruity hops with a floral component Taste has some biscuity malts with a fortune cookies flavor, lightly toasted, white grapefruits, dry green herbs, fry flower petals, sweet orange peels, dry sun dried yellowed grass, lemon zest. Sharp bitterness of medium intensity leaving with a finish that sucks the mouth dry. This is a hop-forward beer lacking depth in the malt department, dryness is more because of a lack in the malt sweetness than a high attenuation. I liked this beer because I like hoppy beers and I like dry beers¸ but objectively speaking I don’t think this is a well-made IPA. At least now I can say I’ve led a GoodLife (straight to my mouth).

22 oz bottle: Pours orange slightly cloudy with a big tan head. Aroma of citrus and spruce - Amazing. Taste is bitter citrus hops, great profile. Finishes light but is an excellent hop forward IPA with great aroma and appearance.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale golden/orange with a thick forming white head. This hits the spot as a west coast IPA. Floral, vibrant, pine-like and citrus hops with a clean balance. Lots of hop flavor without being too bitter, and just the right amount of malt without coming off as too bready and grainy. This is worth revisiting for those special IPA craving. I’m hoping for six packs.

Hanuta06 (369) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: heavily piney hoppy. Appearance: large, rocky, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and mostly lasting longevity. Cloudy, amber body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and finish with long duration. Palate: medium to full body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very hoppy aroma without excessively bitter flavor. An outstanding IPA.

Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, lemon zest and lighty grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering lemon zest finish.

22 oz. Bottle purchased at Chuck’s 85th Hop Shop for $4.59 + tax. Almost no lace no head wispy very thin white head. Clear pretty bright thin orange gold color.

Medium light textured refreshing very drinkable mild sweet citrus pine mild fruit crystal malt clean tasty NW IPA body. Dry mildly bitter rich citrus clean end. Very nice clean NW IPA. (4.0 / 5.0).

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bomber from PD, tap at E9 and PW in the past. Slightlty hazy, gold-orange pour with a medium white bead leaving moderate lace. Nose is peaches, oranges and pine. Medium body and fine carbonation with a nice hoppy oiliness that lends a slickness. Pine, biscuit, oranges and ganja. Finish is medium length, with a continued tropical fruit sweetness and moderate hop bitterness. Hops are prominent in this one, but not at the expense of a firm malt underbody that supports and even peeks through. Love this IPA and will watch for more good things from Good Life.
