4.11/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Enjoyed on draft in Indy.

A. Light copper dark straw color. Egg shell head that retreats to a healthy rim. Nice laces.

S. Bright citrus hops: pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. A little malty.

T. Starts with a minor resin but noticeable citrus hop profile. Moderate malts.

M. Very smooth, medium to light body and high carbonation.

O. This pale ale is very fresh which contributes to a super fresh and crisp feel. The hop profile leans heavily towards the citrus end. I will take another.

1 PINT can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer is amber in color with golden highlights. It gives generous head. The white foam leaves rings of lace as I consume.

When I put my nose to the can I get straight up pineapple. It diminishes when poured into my glass. Other aromas also appear like caramel malt and pine.

The taste has some mild pine and citrus. Unfortunately, I can't detect any pineapple flavor. It has good flavor for a pale ale though.

It has a medium mouthfeel.

This is a mild surprise. I have hear good things about Sun King and asked what the flagship beer was at a store in Indiana. The gentleman pointed me to this beer which is a nice first impression of Sun King.

big thanks to atoulouk for the hookup...presumably extremely fresh since he was just at the brewery. enjoyed from a westbrook snifter

a - brew pours a crystal clear auburn orange with a frothy white head that hung out and left nice spotty lace on the glass. some visible carb in the glass.

s - nose is crisp and toasty. biscuity with a hop highlight. nutty, bready...nice. crystalized malt. no confusion with an ipa, this is a really smooth smelling pale.

t/m/o - opens up a toasty bready malt with a subtle herbal flowery hop to it. really tasteful. well rounded. medium bodied that coats your mouth. drinks easy, but refreshes. carbonation is good but has a very rich silky feel without being heavy. very solid pale ale. glad to have a 2nd can.
