Poured from 64 oz. growler into Sun King pint glass. Pretty shitty pour on my behalf, with nearly two fingers of off-white, light tan head. Slightly hazy burnt orange in color, very pretty to look at. Head retention is stellar. I have to sit a while and enjoy how long it takes to even start working its way down.
Smell is grapefruit, go figure, but with tangerine dancing along nicely. Tangerine is only real citrus I get. Some apricot in there. Good tropical fruitiness.
Quick bitter up front, but breaks softly into its nice malty backdrop (slight caramel, nice toasty!). Resiny, not piney, subtle alcoholy finish, with grapefruit carrying the load.
Mouthfeel is oily, carbonation is a little on the light side for this type of brew, but the beer is too balanced to make much fuss about it. Somewhat dry, nice bitter finish, but definitely appropriate, as I am always ready for another sip.
Overall, this beer is great! Went to the brewery this afternoon to pick it up, just so I could make this review!
If you're in Indy and can find it on tap, please enjoy one, you will not be disappointed. Sun King continues to produce great beer.

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.
