Pours a burnt orange, copperish color with a finger length head that goes away slowly and leaves a thick ring of lacing. Decent carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit (big surprise), tangerine, mango, resinous qualities from the hops, pine, some breadiness and some carmel from the malt. Taste is grapefruit heaven. Starts with lots of bitter grapefruit. Almost like grapefruit rind. Then the middle brings a nice sweet bready quality, as well as some carmel. Just enough malt to take the bitter edge off and have the grapefruit flavor shine. Finish is lots of juicy grapefruit, almost like a grape juice flavor to it, more carmel, candied sugar, resin. High medium body with a creamy, yet crisp mouthfeel. Although it’s a little on the expensive side, this really is an outstanding IPA that stays true to it’s name. Sun King continues to impress.

64 oz growler served in a wine glass taster. Thanks to mishuggah for the share.
A: Pours a solid orange color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some splotchy lace left down the glass.
S: Some dirty berry and some solid grapefruit flesh on the nose with a mild dried grass note and cracker malts.
T: Large grapefruit upfront, mostly fleshy, with just a touch of bitter pith. Sweet bready malts with some dirty, earthy hops on the finish.
M: Clean and light bodied with a medium carbonation level.
O: Definitely lives up to the name with the grapefruit, but I was still slightly disappointed in this one. It's pretty hyped and I think it fell a little flat in complexity.
