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.

Thanks to jmarsh123 for this random act of kindness. 32 oz growled shared generously with several people at Capone's CBS release. Poured into a sample glass, this beer has a lovely 2 finger head with a nice cloudy orangish hue. The nose is grapefruit laden and simply marvelous. The taste is so balanced and sessionable. Great citrus profile. The mouthfeel is sublime very mild without any hop burn. Taste lingers for a short time. Overall, one of the top 3-5 IPA's I've had. Ever.

At chatham tap mass ave... Pours a great deep copper with excellent head and nice lacing. Great huge grapefruit scent with nice sweet malts very much underneath. Fantastic deep flavor with huge citrus/grapefruit throughout that lasts on the tongue and a very good malt backbone. A little hop rough, but no hot alcohol flavors! Great dipa!

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.

By far, this is the best think I have had from Sun King. It pours a handsome copper color from the growler giving a generous head. Citrusy aroma is striking as the forthcoming hop explosion is apparent. This is a exceptional smooth beer that I might compare to 90 Minute IPA. Initially the hop flavor is combine with a guava and mango flavor. I love the exotic fruit flavors. This taste melts into a hoppy sweetness in the aftertaste. This is an easy drinking beer that could do some serious damage with an ABV of 10%.

Awesome surprise growler from a friend, thanks so much for this. Poured 10-11 oz. on multiple days into a tulip.

A - Deep golden-amber coloring, tinge of red around the edges of the brew. Great retention of a one-finger eggshell head. Very good lacing, reminiscent of FFF Apocalypse Cow.

S - Damn, tons and tons of citrus. Orange juice, orange peel, lemongrass. Secondary honey, herbal, and floral notes. This is quite good.

T - Good balance. Initial fruit zest followed by honey sweetness to offset the bitterness. Slight mint quality. Finish is fairly dry with a crisp bitter aftertaste. Little to no alcohol presence.

M - Medium body (for a DIPA), excellent carbonation, appropriately smooth.

D - A surprise. This is my first experience with anything from Sun King, and based on this alone I'll be requesting more growlers or bottles from my pal across state borders. Nice stuff here.

Growler filled yesterday at the brewery.

Jungle Room pours a soapy, sudsy dark copper in color with a two finger off white, creamy and soapy head. The nose is big and fruity with plenty of pineapple and grapefruit with a substantial amount of malty sweetness. The flavors are big yet very balanced. There is a lot of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, and honey esque malt. It has a lot of flavor yet the 10% isn't noticeable at all. It drinks medium bodied for the style and finishes clean. It leaves behind a nice level of hop character and dry citrus in the after taste. Overall this is a really nice beer. It isn't as aromatic as Grapefruit Jungle but this one masks the alcohol is a near flawless manner. This is probably my second favorite beer from Sun King, behind only Velvet Fog. I definitely recommend trying this if you have the opportunity.
