Light copper with pale blonde highlights when backlit and a creamy khaki head that leaves blobs of lace on the glass. The aroma is the best part of this beer, and to me it's more Pineapple than Grapefruit jungle. Pure tropical fruity hops in the nose and faint sweet malt in the background. Resinous hops flavors and grapefruit citrusy notes with a lean malt backbone that falls a bit short for my liking. Lighter bodied for a bigger IPA with nice smooth carbonation. An above average brew for SK but for $18 a four pack it should be amazing, it is not.

Pint can poured into Spiegelau glass.

A: pours with 2 fingers of white head. Crystal clear, medium golden in color.
S: there is a strong burst of grapefruit, orange, overall citrus. Background aroma of pine.
T: this hits the taste buds perfectly. Upfront flavor of citrus as expected, lingering slight dry bitterness with lastin citrus and pine.
M: this is smooth, not much carbonation.
O: this is what I have come to expect out of an IPA. Sun King nailed this one, and I hope it becomes much more readily available.
