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.

Great IPA. Not super hoppy but delicious round flavor. Carmel flavor, I taste a bit of brown ale. This is an unexpectedly good craft-brew IPA. - Snowboards and IPA

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2012
Tried this beer at the Oregon Beer and Wine Festival 2012. Excellent aroma and flavor without the usual bitterness of an IPA. Very smooth taste and an exteme amount of flavor. Met the brewer at the festival and he told me that most of the hops were added in the later stages to get the flavor without the bite of an IPA. Definitely try this if you get a chance!

12 oz can - Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Fantastic hops aromas of just about everything. Man, this is a good one. I’d have more of these for sure.

12oz. can poured into my ipa glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a thick frothy white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but wow its an amazingly citrusy hop bomb. Mouthfeel is between light and medium with ok carbonation and a dry finish. All the rumors I’ve heard of this being one of the best ipas on the market are true. I will be seeking this out on a regular basis for now on, but it tends to sell fast.

TheRealMGD (549) - 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.

Draught. Pours a hazy amber color with a very small white head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy with some good floral tones coming off of it. Taste is bitter and smooth and quite refreshing.

22415brewery (370) - redmond, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Perfume-like in aroma, pours a hazy light amber with a thick cap of off-white foam. Aromas of Valencia orange, light pine, citrus floral, lychee, juicy-fruit gum, grenadine-like, and a candy-like sweetness, with a slight toasty aspect. Taste upfront is moderately sweet, a medium caramel sweetness, a slight malty richness which is then followed with a smooth bittering. Finishes dry, lingers bitter. Very very good.
