Clear golden amber in color. Forms a very large light khaki colored head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing. Fairly aromatic with notes of grain, citrus, a bit of pine and some light floral qualities. Taste is very fine, slight caramel malts, pine, and a bit of grapefruit. On the lighter side of medium. Mild bitterness. Easy drinker.

Cheers and a big thanks to Kegatron for the random gifting of this pint sized can. Much appreciated my friend! Poured into a pub glass, this brew appears a clear copper color with more than 2 fingers worth of slightly off-white uneven froth. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain the layering atop this brew for a pretty decent duration and as it slowly recedes, it leaves patches of lacework on the glass.

The aroma of this brew is quite floral and fruity. Around the edges are some minty hints of herbs and citrus rind. This isn't a bold smelling offering but what is emitting from my glass is without flaw and super enjoyable.

The flavor of this brew is quite juicy with a fruited hop flavor that blends to more of a floral quality. A bit of pulp, rind and zesty hop elements are present but with a very low-key bitterness level. As the brew warms up, it becomes more herbal and rindy with a slight accent of bitterness and touch of alcohol. In the aftertaste is a bit of toasty grain flavoring yet it maintains a very clean and refreshing feel throughout.

This is a lighter bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. This is a very clean and enjoyable take on a pale ale. There really isn't much to complain about here, this is all in all a solid brew. I appreciate the 16oz serving size as this brew rapidly evaporated from my glass. Thanks again Heath!

Poured from can stamped 023? to pint glass the beer pours a translucent amber gold color with a small 1/2 finger white cap. Some retention and little lacing. The nose is the best feature of the beer, in my opinion, with it's crisp pine and citrus hop which blends well with a sweet crystal malt base. Fruity yet not overdoing it. The flavor starts with a mild crystal malt base from which the pine hop flavor and bitterness rises. The mouthfeel is too crisp with too much carbonation to really create a balanced beer and continues to retract from the flavor. Finishes with a lingering crisp carbonated bitter flavor. Overall, this was a treat, but not one I'd quickly return to. It was an extra in a trade and I appreciate it, though wish they could control the carbonation.

Thanks to HosP for the chance to try this one. Cheers!

Bright light amber color with a good one finger head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Awesome piny-resinous hops aroma. Pine and spicy hops on a light frame. Dry and hoppy with little malt body or character. Long bitter hoppy finish.

Light body with good carbonation.

More of a hop juice than a beer. Fairly one note on the piney hops. b

Welcome gift from a friend I met at Hill Farmstead. Thanks, John!

A: Clear golden-red body with a solid finger of frothy head.

S: Nose is simple and great. Crisp hops with a very light and sweet malt body. The combination is slightly tropical, maybe a little mango?

F: Flavor is smooth and balanced, with a very West Coast underdone maltiness, and a light hoppiness that is still remarkably crisp and satisfying. Kind of like SNPA, but with less hops and more light, sweet malt. Doesn't sound that appetizing in print, but it's a super tasty brew.

M: Crisp, carbonated, slightly stripping.

O: Wow, really a nice treat. I like this beer very, very much!

Big thanks to my
co-worker for this surprise!

Sun King Osiris

Pours a clear, light orange/yellow color with an inch of white head. Lots of sticky lacing.

The nose has some earthy, grassy hops working, along with some sweet caramel malts.

The flavor profile is pretty similar and quite subtle. There is some grassy hops that have a nice bittering effect, followed by a balncing amouny of sweet malt.

The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a crisp amount of carbonation that is quite nice.

Overall, super drinkable, decent flavors and did I say drinkable? Great brew for a nice day, unfortunately for me, its cold and rainy outside. Either way, nice session brew. Just wish it was a bit bolder.

Aggressively pine-hopped, light bodied, all day drinker.

A: Almost clear cider orange body with a fleeting one finger off white head.

S: Nice, aggressive resinous, piney hops with a firm and slightly spiced caramel malt pillow underneath.

T: Matching the nose exactly. Hops dominant. Almost a Floydian hop profile. Malt is just like the nose... slightly spiced caramel, just slightly sweet, more buttery. Body is a bit thin, but on the plus side, it's very drinkable, and the heavy handed hopping mostly makes up for it.

M: Highly carbonated with a light, drying, grainy body.

O: Reminds me of Stone Levitation in it's lightness and drinkability, but I would expect more malt backbone at 5.6%.

Gold colored with a two finger head that has some fairly big bubbles. It's mostly clear with a nice amount of carbonation. There is a small amount of lacing left on my nonic pint glass.
It smells of citrus and spices, I am also picking up a certain breadiness which I assume is coming from the yeast.
Grapefruit up front with a toasty flavor to follow.
This is a light bodied beer with bitter hop flavor first followed by another bitter burnt toast taste and leaves a citrusy aftertaste.
A very decent pale ale in a can. I drove about and hour and a half to pick this up amongst others and would certainly grab it again. I would really like to try this beer on tap.

Fresh off the tap. This Pale Ale is right up my alley. At times I really enjoy a over the top like Zombie Dust ( love Zombie!), but Sun King hit it on the head with this one.

Smells very fresh and citrus is there in force. Taste is smooth from the start, crisp with a "I want more" finish!
It's light but doesn't miss the flavor and Pale Ale attributes.

This Pale Ale will stay on my tap! Matter of fact, I'm going to grab a glass!

Gotta love Indiana and APA's!
Well done Sun King!

16oz can, courtesy of AleWatcher, poured into a pint glass.

A- Nearly perfect, as far as I am concerned. It is a translucent, light topaz color. The carbonation is incredibly active throughout and produces a 1/4 white foamy head that is there from start to finish. A sticky lacing leaves layers of rings around the glass.

S-black pepper, citrus peel, pine-like hops

T- bitter grapefruit (like eating a wedge with the skin on it, but a little more subtle), lemon and orange, a dry peppery finish.

M- light, frothy body with a favorably high carbonation level that leaves a tingling sensation at the finish.

O- very good. Not so much a run-of-the-mill APA. I had a Zombie Dust before dinner and this (much to my surprise and delight) compares to it, IMO. I will definitely be seeking more of this out in the future; hopefully this summer, as I could drink plenty ofthese on a hot summer day. Thanks again, Jeff!
