12 oz can, thanks Amber. Aroma is candy sweet, pine, perfume, floral, grapefruit. Pours slightly hazy golden with a huge off-white fluffy head with excellent retention; laces nicely. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter. Body is medium to nearly thin, carbonation high. Nice enough.

very nice hop complexity in this beer that made it a step above the average IPA. Having it fresh at the source doesnít hurt the hops either :)

IslandHaole (1228) - 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.

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.

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

Reid (2276) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2012
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in S.Salem,Oregon $3.99 Typical orange body for an IPA but with a very large thick and bubbly creme coloured head. Fine and strong hop aromas spicy,fruity and pine like..very nice. Taste typical deep ,dank PNW style..but has an intresting creaminess just below the surface.Thats makes this less a hop monster and more approachable and even balanced. Nice palate though i think this could have used more carbonation. Odd IPA at once typical then very untypical in that the creaminess makes this so easy to gulp. I liked it though maybe on my next trip to Bend i can taste it at the source.

22. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with a dense and pillowy whitish head and lots of eggy lace. Mild piney nose--clean and present, but not the most forceful aromatics around. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, and pine on the mid palate. Iíve had this beer from 500 breweries by now, but itís always a pleasure to drink when itís made this well with good fresh ingredients. No revelations here, but a worthy drinker.
