4 oz pour at tasting even from Can (Orange for the 2014 summer batch)

A- Coppery-red with nice light head
S- Big boquett of tropical fruits. Orange peels and mango
T- Apparently this is a blend of Azacca and Mosaic hops... I'll just call it tasty. Nice acidic hopiness, but still orange/citrus rind.
M- Pretty standard IPA mouthfeel

O- I'm not too impressed with Sun King's brews, but I really like this one. Very nicely done. (429 characters)

This is the second Fistful I've tried and I'm big fan of the series. The Sun King website says this year's Autumn edition has Mandarina, Equinox, and Galaxy hops. It's a great example of a West Coast IPA. Very drinkable with a big floral and citrus juicy aroma. The flavor has more of the wonderful apricot and orange peel mixture. The bitter finish is rounded and quite pleasant. I'd have another. (399 characters)

Bought a 4 pack pints. I loved the green spring IPA Fistful so I thought I would give this one a chance as well.
First pint was ok. Sweet juicy middle with a big hop bite up front. Second pint was harsh than the first and the hop profile started to get tiring on the palate. Good up front taste, but after one of these it is very difficult to finish a second for sure. I have tried all four fistful beers and the green is the only one I can make it thru. Try it if you love strong hop profile but realize this may be one and done. (531 characters)
