Purchased at Portland's Belmont Station for $4.98. Poured from a bomber into a conic pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont.
A- Two and a half finger cream-colored head. Surprisingly long retention, lasts several minutes. Murky orange color with middling clarity. Thick fluffy lacing as the head descends.
S- Citrusy, tropical, West-coast hop smell. Fruity, floral and fragrant. Pineapple and sugary bits. Very sweet and floral aroma.
T- Fresh, not too bitter, not to sweet. Has great qualities on both sides of the IPA scale. Nice flavor. Slightly sour, actually.
M- Medium bodied, wet, slightly sticky.
O- Nice IPA from GoodLife. Bend is a great scene right now.

on tap at Double Dragon, Portland
Amber gold with a finger of white froth.
Big OJ, pine, and fruit nose.
Peach Danish, then orange, pine, and children’s Bayer hops.
Papaya finish and powdery linger.
Lt-med, crisp, slightly chewy.
Big, bitter, PNW IPA. Enough fruit, but cuts pretty hard with the IBUs. I could stay on this one.
Centennial, Chinook, Cascade, Galaxy, Warrior - “Hop-bursted” - does that help?

Pours a nice light amber with a decent white head that sticks around
Smell is pine and citrus, with a bready malty backbone to balance it out
Taste is mostly malty with highlights of pine and citrus, pineapple, mango, and gold raisins.
Feel is lightly carbed
Overall a nice IPA that I can say is almost on par with union jack.

Semi cloudy amber,1 finger of off white head, spotty lacing.
Aroma is citrus and pine, malts in the mix but less noticeable cold.
Good citrus and pine hop blast, but as it warms the malt becomes more prominent and sweet, typical of a West Coast IPA.
Mouthfeel was light medium ,slightly thin, good carbonation.
This one is good, but seems more impressive if consumed quickly rather than savored. I found the upfront hoppy character fading as it warmed, and that slight butterscotch sweetness became more pronounced. Worth trying if you enjoy a hoppy IPA.
