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. slowrunner77 (12133) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2014
very nice hop complexity in this beer that made it a step above the average IPA. Having it fresh at the source doesn’t hurt the hops either :) malrubius (2924) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 28, 2015

Smells tropical and fruity, lightly malted. Slightly cloudy, Amber colour, regular white head. Super bitter start, grapefruit, peach. Mouthfeel is nice, loud start, great smooth finish, great balance medium body. IslandHaole (1273) - Misawa, JAPAN - 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.

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

22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in S.Salem,Oregon
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. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2012
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. I’ve had this beer from 500 breweries by now, but it’s always a pleasure to drink when it’s made this well with good fresh ingredients. No revelations here, but a worthy drinker. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Nose of caramel, toast, floral, pine, and light citrus hops. Pours amber, a little haze, a nice creamy head and lace. Flavors of caramel, toast, pine, floral and citrus hops. Moderate bitterness, good drinkability. Smooth body. Fresh and well done.
