Description taken straight from Sun King's website:
Fistful "Green" contains Warrior, Mandarina, and Galaxy hops, which provide the citrusy flavors of tangerine and grapefruit.

Picked this up at Sun King in Indy. Luckily they had a tasting going on that day. It was a madhouse but I got to try multiple beers before I made my decision. This was the only beer that stood out to me on Friday.

Pours a golden orange color. Very clean with a nice white head and good retention. Lacing was minimal but still apparent in my snifter.

The aroma is subdued hops with herbal and citrus characteristics. Not too sure if the Mandarina hops gave it more citrus than with the Galaxy alone. Overall I wish it smelled a bit more fresh squeezed like. Galaxy hops provided the most aromatics.

The taste was clean, astringent but had the qualities you want in a well done IIPA. Citrus notes were plenty but it didn't have that extra level which I was hoping for. Finishes cleanly and has a medium-light mouthfeel.

Overall it stood out from the 5 other beers they had on tap.

Serving type: growler
