This poured a clear, light orange. The aromatics were extremely powerful showing a mix of stone & citrus fruit along with some floral components. Grassy at first with plenty of grapefruit & a hint of tropical, exotic fruit on the back of the palate. Balanced with a hoppy bite. This is very soft in the mouth despite the hop presence. It leaves a lingering grapefruit finish.

Another very good effort from GoodLife. Hoping this gets canned or bottled soon.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a honey orange gold with sunshine highlights and a fat finger of cream colored foam that dwindles in it's own good time. Smell is subdued and there is no date on this one. Smells like tr0pical lightness, , cracker and some orange. A breath of sweetness from malt and from fruits. So lovely. Taste is more pronounced than the nose. Kiwi and green light sweetness, some berry like fruits and a bit of melon. It's the melon that is so captivating in this. It's chilly, icy and green but sweet. There is a light hop bitter and a touch of sweet grass. This beer finishes a bit muddled. The fruits all seem to lose their definition in the finish and it's a jumbled sweetness but it's good. I wish it had been dry but it finishes sweet and with a lingering aftertaste of kiwi. Light creamy and almost crisp mouthfeel

What's not to like? I had a six pack of this beer and drank it in two days it was that good. I love ti with spicy food. Light , almost crisp and just fantastic flavor!

A> Poured from a 12oz can, poured a cloudy golden-orange with a small head that dissipated quickly but left a bit of lacing

S> Subdued. Sweet malts, a bit of grass, perhaps a bit of melon and lemon

T> More lively than the bouquet, the malt is complex and less sweet than I thought it would be. The hops are noticeable but not overpowering, much like the smell there is still a lot of grass, with a bit of lemon, and a touch of spice and white pepper. Nice finish with good balance between the hops and the malt.

M> Solid mouthfeel, good carbonation, but a bit too sweet.

O> Pretty interesting beer, it reminds me of a golden ale with a hop profile closer to an american pale ale. A solid beer but just a bit too sweet for the ABV.
