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.

Can obtained at the Tasty Weasel Taproom prior to GABF. Poured into a tulip glass.

Body is a deep dark brown with a thick foamy beige head that leaves lots of sticky lacing as it dissipates slowly into a film and a thickish ring.

Smells of citrusy hops, forest floor, and milk chocolate.

The flavor of grapefruit citrus bitter hops is strong, but balanced well by sweet malt sugars resembling chocolate milk. A little charred malt also pulls it toward a dark bittersweet chocolate dimension especially in the finish which ends quite dry.

Body is medium with a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

This beer is interesting as the char, citrus hops, and chocolate notes maintain some independence, but also integrate well. Keeps the palate guessing. I especially enjoy the dark chocolate notes in the dry finish. This is a medium bodied ale that at 7% ABV, I could easily drink a few of. It is interesting that all the hops are Galaxy which were added in 3 steps to the kettle, the whirlpool, and also dry-hopped, presenting a clean expression of the Galaxy hop varietal.

Aluminum can into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown color with an inch thick light beige head. The smell is hoppy...not really much else. Taste is very different. Much more like a stout/big brown ale than an IPA. Its like a very hoppy brown...just as the name suggests! Very impressive. terrific chocolately..hoppy..malty flavor. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall extremely impressed by this one. Thanks JD!

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.

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.
