Bomber poured into a 16 Tons nonic, mountain rescue is auburn with an off-white head that leaves very heavy foamy lace.

Smell is fairly citrusy, mandarin oranges, a touch of hop resin.

Taste is also pretty heavy on the orange notes, some citrus hops possibly amplified by English ale yeast esters. I like the fruitiness, and lower bitterness, but it's a touch sugary.

Mouthfeel is oily, slick, dry, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good. This is a really flavor pale ale whose profile I'm digging. Also really like the whole tribute to the rescue crews. And the whole idea of the good life. These guys are worth keeping an eye on.

I bought a 22 oz bottle of Mountain Rescue Dry Hop Pale Ale in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a burnt orange/gold color, hazy with a thick foamy white head. The bottle has some nice artwork on it, silk screened not a paper label.

Smell is a light sweet citrus aroma, lemon blossoms and sweet orange scents.

Taste is a sweet bread flavor upfront, with a hint of caramel, and then a mildly bitter citrus and pine finish. It's a mild dry hop bitterness, not like an IPA.

Mouthfeel has some body to it, but it's a clean feel and appropriate for the style.

Overall a very good, full flavored and tasty pale ale. I'd have this again. A solid offering from Good Life Brewing. And yet another reason to queue up a trip to Bend, Oregon.

Two fingers of head on a clear, copper colored body.
Nice aroma of spruce and pineapple.
Pine taste at first, then building dry lemon bitterness to the end.
Soft texture with lower carbonation and medium body.
It has great aroma, and good taste and texture. As a pale ale it is pretty hoppy though.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium copper amber with a nice two finger off-white head and lots of lacing. Great aroma of bready and caramel malt, citrus and light pine hops, bordering on IPA country. Pleasant flavor of sweet malt and herbal and pine hops, light citrus and hop finish. Nicely balanced and integrated flavors. Medium bodied with hints of creaminess, not what I'd expect from a low ABV pale ale, but appreciated. Flavors are somewhat muted, but in style for a pale ale. A pleasant, refreshing pale ale for a rare hot Seattle evening. Very glad I got to try this; it's a worthy tribute to it's title mountain rescuers.
