poured 16oz can into snifter.

A - Burnt orange and amber with a large 3 finger off white head. Excellent retention that fades into a frothy cap. Thick splotches of lacing on the glass.

S - Pleasant notes of citrus and floral hops. Grapefruit peel and some tangerine with sweet caramel notes.

T - This really does have a nice grapefruit flavor. It is not intense bitter grapefruit, but a sweeter ripe grapefruit. Other citrus hops dance around the palate before giving way to some sweet caramel malts. Finish is more delicious grapefruit flavor. Pretty straight forward, but very tasty.

M - Medium feel with good carbonation. Somewhat sticky with a bit of bitterness on the finish.

O - This lives up to its name and is a flavorful grapefruit IPA. Worth buying if you see it.

16 oz. can poured into nonic pint.

A- Copper in color, with a light tan head. Retention is okay.

S- Definitely citrus notes, grapefruit, and pineapple. Strong malt background, sweetness.

T- Citrus and toasted malt flavors are well balanced. Grapefruit dryness, and a sweet malt.

M- Carbonation is a little snappy. Dry finish, but pleasant after a well balanced body.

O- Very well balanced. This is easily my favorite from Sun King so far.
