Formerly Mountain Rescue Pale Ale

Sometimes, pursuing the GoodLife here in Bend, Oregon takes you to the edge. And over it. Our Mountain Rescue Session Ale is named for those gutsy men and women who put their lives on the line to save ours.

Who rescue us when bad things happen and we go over the edge. We toast them and say, “Here’s to a long, happy, GoodLife – for all of us!”

This life-enhancing brew is a balance of NW hops and light alcohol. Clean and crisp with hints of citrus and pine. It’s a savior to savor anytime. Enjoy the GoodLife and be safe out there!

Just a good old fashioned go-to type pale ale. Beautiful dense yet fluffy head. Priced right as an easy knock back pale ale for spring summer fall. Taste profile is great hop-malt mix. So well fashioned that no favors spike out as odd or off. Smooth finish.

Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smells strongly of malt with a lot of caramel and toffee scent. Little bit of pine board scent and some strong tea aroma but it isn't highly hopped or very aromatic.

Starts out sweet and a lot more bitter than it smells. Toffee candy and a sharp hop bite. Bit of tobacco leaf in the hops tastes a bit like a English ale. Bitterness level is quite high for the beer style but it doesn't last long.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty ale with a sharp hop finish.

Beer exploded when opened and couldn't pour without forming everywhere... No expiration date to tell if old

bomber into a tulip. Really

wondering if I got a bad bottle. It's insanely over carbonated to a point that makes it almost undrinkable. Finding myself burping after every sip. If it weren't for the carbonation, this could be a decently enjoyable beer.

Cloudy amber hue. Strong cardamom aftertaste.
