According to their placard at the brewery. Jungle Room IIPA is an imperial IPA using the same malt base as Grapefruit Jungle with the hop bill a combination of GFJ and Cream Dream IV.

Poured a bright orange with a 1.5 finger off-white head.

Smells of tropical fruits. Mango and a bit of pineapple. A bit of grapefruit as well, but tropical fruits dominate. Just a touch of maltiness.

Tastes similar to its brother, but more complex overall. The malt bill is present on this one and there is some caramel goodness in the middle of the tongue, but definitely a hop forward beer. Starts out with intense tropical fruit flavors before rounding out in a dry grapefruit mouth puckering bitterness. The grapefruit taste is definitely strong, but not as much as GFJ.

Mouthfeel is good and creamy with good carbonation.

Another good IPA from Sun King. I think I slightly prefer the original Grapefruit Jungle, but still a great DIPA. Hopefully they will brew this again.

4.41/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap poured into snifter.

A: 4.25 Pours dark golden with a hint of copper. Crystal clear, 1 finger of head the reduces fairly quickly and leaves very little lacing
S: 4.5 Strong citrus, grapefruit, hints of pine and malt.
T: 4.5 Bursting with grapefruit flavor, citrus stands back with the pine in the flavor. Lingering pine, just slightly dry finish.
M: 4.25 Smooth, carbed slightly too high for me taste for this style.
O: 4.25 Great beer, holds its own next to GFJ, but doesn't match it.

Serving type: on-tap

3.84/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

On draft at the SK IV Anniversary tapping thingee.

Aroma has big nodes of grapefruit hops and brown sugar malts. A very thick smell belying its relatively low (for a IIPA) ABV. I would have taken this to be somewhere around 12%, just by smelling it.

Flavor avoids any syrupy nodes, but the malt sweetness and ripe fruit nodes of the hops get a little cloying when combined. Lots of mango and pineapple, which are both really pleasant but the whole thing just doesn't come together all that well. Good, but not great.

Drank one of these immediately after drinking a Grapefruit Jungle, and the near-perfect, gloriously balanced fruit rush of the GFJ made this one seem a little off.
