Poured from tall boy pint can into pint glass.
About 1 and 1/4 fingers foam of a slightly off white but mostly pure white color.
Smell is pure citrus, grapefruit, faint orange, delicate pear.
Taste is so smooth. Don't get me wrong the initial taste is bitter and slightly spicy. But for a hophead, it's the most mellow, divine bittering imaginable. Citrus lingers a tad, with slight lemon in the rear.
Once the citrus dissipates, a small malt presence can be found.
Perhaps the best thing about Sun King is their water. Yes, their water. It's nice and somewhat harder, giving their beer that great zip to give the bitterness an extra crisp umph -- sulfate doing the work, I'm assuming. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Anyway, this is easily in my Top 3 Alone on an Island beers. It's hoppy, has a nice body, with some oily citrus dancing about, goes well with a ton of food, readily available in Indianapolis, not too dry, and it's affordable.

A - Clear copper orange body, with big, pillowy white head that reduces quickly to a thin, partial film and slight lacing.
S - Strangely muted, but some mild pine and malty honey. A bit of floral hop, too.
T - The nose, but not muted. The pine comes out front, along with a bit of pith, and some orange flesh notes, against a background of cracker malt and slight hints of honey, but at the mid-point, there is a sharp spike of hop bitterness that continues through the close.
M - Very snappy carbonation scrubs the tongue. The result is a very easy drinker, despite the bitter finish.
O - Solid, bright ale that packs some flavor, too.
Serving type: growler
