Nice double IPA from Sun King. Color is a dark amber with an off-white head. Persistant, but not a lot of lacing. Tropical fruit, caramel, biscuit and grapefruit aroma. Powerful. Taste is hoppy, of course, with a good malt sweetness, pine and a bit of alcohol at the finish. Mouthful is thick, dry at the end and could use a bit more carbonation, I think. Overall, a great beer that I love being able to get fresh here in Indy. (427 characters)

Tried this just today on tap at Sun King. Review is from the growler I brought home.

Pours a hazy orange. Huge hoppy citrus smell. Loads of grapefruit and orange. Tastes very citrusy. Very hoppy. Huge bitterness on the back end of the taste that keeps me from pounding this. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, carbonated, and excellent. This might be my favorite brew if not for the IBU's on this bad boy. They are very noticeable. Once again, sun king has these awesome beers that they haven't canned yet. They need to expand. (521 characters)

Nice copper color with very little head. Strong citrus smell. You can smell the grapefruit and finishes with a nice malt flavor. Hits the tongue lightly before the malts kick in and then the citrus and hops finish. Very fun IPA. Light easy finish, so I can drink many. (268 characters)

T- Sweet on the front, then tart citrus and finally tart grapefruit
M- Smooth... a bit on the thin side, but very drinkable

O- Best offering I have had from SunKing. Price point may be a bit high. (338 characters)

On tap at Twenty Taps in Broad Ripple

A: Nice color, pretty normal for an IPA

S: Very good smell, lots of fruits but since the name is Grapefruit I could smell that the most.

T: Tangy hoppy grapefruit. Very nice IPA taste with a little extra kick of grapefruit.

M: Pretty good nothing special for an IPA, good carbonation with nice hops and fruit overtones.

O: Try this for sure as it is most likely my favorite beer from Sun King. (438 characters)

Big thanks goes out to my boy aasher for sending me this one after the second release due to losing the first one in another shipment. Thanks Al! Shared this one with my doppelganger, funkydelic, and beeruser. Served from growler into a Bell's stemmed tulip. Poured yellow-orange with a two finger off-white head that subsided to half a finger slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, grapefruit, grapefruit hop, citrus, and citrus hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, grapefruit, citrus, grapefruit hop, and citrus hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. As stated by the name, this one was pretty grapefruit dominant. This is usually a great thing, but this one was a little too much grapefruit to be able to pick out other subtlties in the brew. Definitely still a nice beer that any fan of the American IPA should get their hands on at least once! (962 characters)
