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!

Good Life is a newcomer to the Bend beer scene. This IPA has a great citrus aroma along with a 7% ABV. Very much in the style of our local IPAs.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Part of a blind tasting with Earth Thirst and Alesmith IPA. Pours between yellow and orange, a two finger head. Smell is light fruity, floral and a bit grassy. Tastes like a citrus rind, with some earthy backbone. Smooth and hoppy, pretty nice ipa.

AWISLguy (1302) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours orangey amber with a white head - terrific spoty lacing. Aroma has sweet toffee, pine, resin. Taste is sweet caramel, resin and citrus. Some pine. A bit rough. Becomes more and more bitter throughout the glass. Finishes bitter with hints of sweet. Better than non hoppy brews, but rough.

Pine and resin dominate the aroma and flavor. Reminds me of Stone IPA. Body is a little too thin and quite effervescent. Pretty good IPA.
