Grapefruit and onion. More so on the onion. Not much malt at all. Basically tastes like onion juice in a can. Very hard to drink as well. Would not drink again. Sorry Sun King, this one is not good.

16 FL. OZ. can
Served in a tulip

It pours deep amber, almost copper, in color. It has burnt orange highlights. A couple inches of beige head recede to a thin film leaving no lacing.

I get some stinky hops varieties. You know that cat piss one. It's in there. I smell a little citrus, too.

It started out really bitter. Once I got through the bitterness I noticed a little citrus. Then that dank, cat urine taste that makes my mouth water.

Medium mouthfeel. Not over carbonated

This is a good beer. It is not necessarily in my wheelhouse as far as hops varietals. It has strong flavor and lets you know you were drinking an IPA. This is my second Sun King beer. I definitely want to try more.

Very earthy and woody. Could use a serious hop kick, in my opinion. Like Osiris, it's just too even keeled. And the carbonation seems to kick just the same. This seems a variation of Osiris, and a very uninteresting one at that.
