COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The descent from the top of the mountain to the bottom should be exhilarating. Whether it’s a gradual descent or a screaming race that gets you to the bottom, this beer is created to help you enjoy the experience.

Life is loaded with peaks and valleys, where we associate the valleys with the reward post ascending the peak. Like the flow of the stream slows in the valley, put the cell phone away, sit back and relax with this IPA, and enjoy the journey.

This beer is a hop lover’s dream that has balance you will appreciate. We created it for you so you can take time out from the rigors of life and descend to a valley full of hops – sounds good, no, great!

Malt: NW Two Row, Bonlander Munich, Melanoidin, Crystal 60, Carafoam
Hops: Centennial, Chinook, Cascade, Galaxy, Warrior

Brewed with a process called "Hop Bursting," resulting in a beer with a balance and quality that you will not forget!

12oz can into taster glass from my cabin boys. Pours a thick amber honey gold orange tan. Nice melon floral aroma, then nicely settled hops. Taste is a nice flow of hops, citrus cues, grass, earthy notes. Solid IPA

GIJOE (1077) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Pours a golden color with a foamy, white head that stays forever. Nose is somewhat fruity: citrus with light pine notes. Taste is sweet with a distinct hop bite. Well balanced. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Quite good beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

nealblind (1626) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2016
gold orange pour. aroma wheat orange amarillo. Tastes doughy firmly bitter some dry alcohol bite. Sweet As Pale is way better. This in fact feels like a pale that’s been shoehorned into the IPA style.

polo_marco (265) - milton, Vermont, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Drinking a 12 ounce can. Scent is slightly off could be a bit stronger I do smell great citrus fruits with a nice hot exterior background some caramel malt. Taste is quite bitter starting off then a nice smooth lemony malty backdrop sits on your tongue for the perfect amount of time. This IPA makes me believe that there could be a good life.

IslandHaole (1216) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Scent of the candied lemon peels used for making fruit cakes, piney hops. Massive rocky off-white head sits atop a hazy deep gold brew. Great balance, really good job to the lads at GoodLife! Sweet malts, sugar cookie dough with a good citrus/pine resin hop bitterness. Alcohol well masked, easy drinking, not overly complex but still very good.
