Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours just shy of clear with a golden amber color and a creamy white head that never gets too large or distant. Nice grapefruit and apricot aroma mixed with a hint of pine and hints of bready malt somewhere in the mix. Taste is a nice mix of bready biscuity malt with plenty of earthy pine and citrus hop flavor to keep me interested. Medium to light body with a fairly dry finish, moderate level of carbonation and a resinous creamy watery mouthfeel. Nice pale ale with huge amounts of hop aroma. I wouldn't mind a touch more body here, but I could also see myself cutting the lawn with one of these too.

Poured from a can a bright clear gold color with a single finger of wet, bubbly head. Light lacing on sides of glass.

Aroma of fresh grass, orange and grapefruit. Light touch of maltiness.

Taste of grapefruit, orange, a bit of spicy herbs and grainy malts. Finishes clean with a mild bitterness.

Medium bodied and crisp with a sharper carbonation.

A real nice little Pale Ale from Sun King. I'll be sure to grab more on my next trip thru Indiana.

a - 14 k golden liquid with a clean, 1 finger thick fluffy head

s - fresh, wet, sticky, citrus hops... Only a APA - wow!

t - said i only have one. A very nice citrus - well hopped brew. Grapefruit-lemon blend, somewhat sweet with a quick bite at the end.

m - somewhat cream, crisp Pale that is extremely drinkable...

o - Maybe one of my favorite Pale Ales... Quite tasty!

P: On tap in to a pint glass.

A: SRM is pale brown. Translucent and clear filtered. Head is white, 1 in, semi-puffy, and dissipates to line the top of the beer. Medium carbonation. Light lacing.

S: Big hop profile on the nose. Light malt.

T: Hops are much more mellow than what the nose would lead you to believe. That said, the taste is a very nice balance of hops and there is still a large hop presence. Malt is light. Very drinkable. Hop aftertaste is just slightly bitter, not overpowering.

M: Hops create a very balanced mf. Hops cover the palate but are not overpowering.

O: Very good APA. This is another beer that makes me proud of my hometown and glad to see that some very quality beers are coming out of places other than northwest Indiana. Very good flavors/use of hops, nicely balanced beer.

A: Golden honey hue with a big steady head and nice lacing

S: Lots of hop aromas: grapefruit, orange, lemon, with some pine; some funky grainy malt quality underneath

T: Lots of citrus hops up front with a good balance between citrus, oils, and toasted bready malts

F: Fairly well carbonated, medium body and a bit sticky just like I like my hoppy beers

O: A really nice, hop-forward pale ale: citrusy and bittern and yet it manages to balance itself out in the end
