I really like this brew. It is better than many of the beers the "bros" score higher and I am feeling that Sun King may be one of the better producers out there. I had one of their special hop beers last summer, and honestly, may be one of the best beers I have ever had. This one is good, very good, and is among the best IPA's in the country. It is in my top 10.

It pours a straw, light copper color, almost orange, good head, and great citrusy nose. Great mouthfeel. Far more citrus than pine, with a florally background. This beer has a complex hop profile, but does stay in the front of the mouth. I love this beer. This is not Zombie Dust, is not Flower Power, but outdoes Dogfish 60, Stone, Victory Hop Devil. If I had a criticism it would be that it doesn't have a great finish like the very best in the category do. After having so many of the American IPA's I have concluded that is what separates the best....the finish. This is top 10...which is a huge accolade. These guys will get nation wide notoriety but they are not yet at the top of the class. This beer can hang with Sculpin! Yes...I said it, this can hang with Sculpin. It does not have the depth and class to match wits with the likes of some others, but they outdo many that have more pub.

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

Got this as a bonus in a trade. Lucky me

Poured from the can into a shaker pint glass.

A)golden clear pour, with slight head, not as much head as I thought although an aggressive pour. Head left a thin layer within 5 minutes

S). Good overall, to me grassy and slight citrus bread

T) it shines here, crisp and inviting. Very smooth. Citrus hops I get for sure as do I get the grassy hops the smell foretold. Balanced though as it has a nice malt base

M) nice and easy drinking

Overall a very solid beer. May have to seek out more Sun King
