Thanks zach for this beer...
The beer pours a clear amber with a generous white foamy head that laces poorly. The nose is disappointing, although it has a slightly floral hoppiness and nectar sweetness. The taste is just as mild as the nose presenting a bouquet of juicy hops and has a semi-sweet, light bodied mouthfeel with a hint of bitterness in the finish. It's one of the easiest drinking APAs I've had...no wonder it's not my favorite. Overall, this beer is quite balanced and refreshing to drink. However, it's probably a one and done for me.

The appearance is one of the best aspects of this brew. The head is bright white, but only a finger thick and quickly recedes to a thin even layer. There is heavy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The color is a clear orange amber. I can see several columns of bubbles rising to the top.

The smell is two-dimensional, which is what I would expect from a good pale ale. This brew strikes an excellent balance between hop and malt aromas. The hop aroma is definitely on the citrus end of the spectrum and reminds me of orange and lemon zest. The malt aroma is like caramel and lightly roasted malts.

The taste begins with orange and grapefruit like citrus. There are some toasted bread flavors in the middle which are overcome by bitterness. The bitterness does not linger strong, because the finish is has a nice balance between the malt backbone and hop bitterness. The aftertaste is great and remains balanced. It tempts you into drinking more.

The feel is light to medium and very little carbonation is detected. There is a very light presence of oil that coats the mouth. Although this might be the fatty lunch I just had.

This is one of my favorite pale ales out there. The balance in the nose and flavor is my idea of excellent execution. At the stated ABV I wouldn't call this a session brew, but it's very difficult to have only one. I'm glad to have relatives in Indy, so I can always have a chance to visit Sun King.

Deep yellow, clear body, and a tall dense white head.

Smells of orange peel and light lemon with grainy malt.

Aggressively hopped with good malt backbone. Citrus hops and grain, slightly bitter.

Really clean mouthfeel if not a little oily. Medium light body and very drinkable.

It's a really outstanding pale ale and canned in a tall boy at that.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16 oz. can into pint glass.

A: Pours a deep yellow to light gold, with a two-finger white head that settles to foam. Decent visible carbonation.

S: Bright orange/citrus aroma, some flower & pine hops also.

T: Hoppy up front (following the nose), although a little muted compared to aroma. Then biscuity malt & sweetness.

M: Tends towards a lighter mouthfeel, nice amount of carbonation. Pithy hop hang. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: Definitely a really nice hoppy pale ale. A very well done beer!
