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

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.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice dark coppery golden orange hue that is on the clear side with a nice creamy two finger head that fades to a fat blanket.

S - Aromas of nice citrus, light malt sweetness. Definitely getting Mosaic hops, faintly earthy and spicy. Very light tropical notes. Pleasant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, light tropical notes. The citrus is nice, good oranges and faint faint bitterness. Light earthy spicy hops, crisp and clean taste with a very light lingering finish.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, alcohol nonexistant. Nice and refreshing.

O - Overall this was a solid IPA offering from Sun King. They used a hop variety I'd never heard of before (Azteca), but yeah...tasty.
