look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Tasted On: 05-122014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. can
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Single from Let's Pour mailorder

A: Foam gushed from the can when I popped the tab, leading to a very tall white head. Beer is clear and a light amber color. Good lacing follows the head, which has excellent retention.

S: Smells of floral hops mainly, with some light citrus and tropical fruit aromas as well.

T: Moderately bitter in taste, with a nice balancing act between hops and malts.

M: Mouthfeel is crisp and clean on a light body. The beer finishes bitter and somewhat dry.

O: Overall a very nice IPA that seems perfect for the season as we head into warmer weather.

GoodLife Brewing Company & Bier Hall - Descender IPA, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a cloudy caramel amber with a huge soapy head that retains well and leaves a great amount of excess lacing.

Smell - Aroma is some juicy citrus but primarily pine hops. Good hop/malt balance.

Taste - Hops take the lead form the start, juicy citrus with pine almost equal proportions. Ends more towards pine/floral.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and drinkable. Zero booziness, for 7% this brew floored me with the drinkability.

Overall - This is a great Northwest AIPA, it has great hop proportions and goes down insanely smooth. I enjoyed this for sure.
