16 oz can. Pours dark brown with a smallish creamy off white head that stays at a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is roasted chocolate malts with some rye notes and some piney hops.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts with a lot of bitter roast, a little fruit, and a big piney hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation and a little watery.

Overall, similar to a black IPA, but more brown and sweet.

Brown bodied with lots of retained head. Creamy mouthfeel. Lace map. Hoppy aroma. Very citrus hoppy brown, a marriage of sweetish malts and a full IPA with IBUs to spare. Great drinkability. Hit the spot. Top notch American brown.Nicely designed can, looks like a waterbottle or sunscreen, or both. Thanks Jason Bach.

A friend in Boulder shipped this east for me. Heck of a guy. This isn't far from a Black IPA or hoppy porter. There's a lot of smooth chocolate and big biting citrus hops. The body is big and satisfying, but not too heavy or sweet. The aroma has a mix of roasted barley with more piney hops. There are some juicier notes in the flavor, but the beer finishes dry with spice and rind. Find yourself some.

Served this 16 oz. cone top aluminum can in a Sierra Nevada Hops glass. No date. The body was dark brown with cola highlights. the head was medium tan leaving minimal lacing. A thin cap stayed throughout.

The smell was fresh and leafy. Bread crust.

The taste was earthy and rich. Reflects the aroma well. Fresh hops and bread crust. There was a gentle lingering bitterness. Easy to drink, this one disappeared quickly despite the fact that brown ales are among my least favorite style.

The mouthfeel was medium in body/density with a nice prickle on the tongue. Adequate carbonation. Overall very nice.

Poured from can bottle thing into Duvel tulip. Let sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before pouring.

A: Clean dark brown color with a small off-white halo of a head. Even with an aggressive pour, there wasn't much of a head. I'm ok with that. Looks pretty good.

S: A ton of hops right off the bat. As the beer settles, the sweetness of the malt starts to come out more. I'm picking up some citrus, pine, and chocolate primarily. Pretty nice.

T: The hops take the backseat once you sip. Sweet up front with a pretty solid malt backbone, as would be expected with a brown ale. A lot of the same chocolate with a little bit of that pine from the nose. Pleasant.

M: Definitely drinkable and hides the 7% really well. Could have more than a few of these.

O: Definitely impressed by this collaboration between the breweries. The hops are definitely in the same vein as other Oskar Blues brews, but I have never had a Sun King, so I can't speak to what they do well. That being said, definitely worth a try if you can find it.

Ppours a deep amber to brown in color with a light tan head. In the aroma, fresh orange citrus hops. In the taste, big and fresh orange citrus hops and a note of caramel malt. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry, fresh orange citrus hop in the aftertaste. Big hops of orange citrus. Drinks more like an IPA than a brown ale.
