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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Great pine and hop scents, was limited to the can so I couldn't check the color too well. Light hop flavor with a hint of malt

Bottle. Hops are up front in this brew and overwhelmed the maltiness. It was decent but not great.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all about.
The smell started off with a big burst of citrus hops running over light piney notes and then a slight floral setting balances within.
The taste copied the smell to have a nice bittersweet burst of hops to malts, nicely balanced. A light piney to citrus aftertaste leads into a refined sweet citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation feels right for an AIPA - slightly back to allow the hops to take the lead on the bitterness and harshness on my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.
