Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #45 (Oct 2010):

Tallboys! Good choice! Huge froth with sticky hop goodness as the head holds strong. A bale of hops was just thrown at our noses. Snap and a bite, carbonation and hops pair up well. Oily citric hop flavor throughout; toasted grain with bread crust and biscuits on the palate. Super clean, though there is a mild estery pear fruitiness from the yeast. Hops and malt don't clash but rather meld well together, a perfect balance for such a well-hopped brew. Put this on your short list. Yeah, we'll say it. Sessionable!

Gotta love the 16oz can. Pours into my glass a bright orange with great clarity and a two finger creamy, bubbly head. Plenty of active carbonation. Aromas of crisp pale malts meet up with bright citric hops. Underlying spiciness with a touch of grapefruit. Hops are forward here making for an assertive pale ale.

First sip brings crisp, light pale malts upfront that envelope a wash of green, citric hoppiness. Hints of pine and spice meander through the brew along with a nice bitterness that carries it down.

Mouthfeel is smooth and on the lighter side with plenty of carbonation. This is a really easy drinker and I'd love to take some of these cans to the beach. Overall, a well crafted pale ale that hits the spot and exceeds in sessionability. Worth seeking out.

16 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet biscuity malts with some earthy, fruity hops.

The flavor is biscuity malts with some spicy grassy hops and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, OK biscuity pale ale with decent hops.

Pours a light yellow from a tallboy into a pin glass. light grass smell.
Little or no cloudiness.

The head is actually better tasting than the beer.

This is a good light beer.

I could drink this all day on a hot summer day, or until I ran out of of money.

At $12-14 per 4pak, I would not recommend drinking more than 1 can. They taste like they should $8 for a 4pak.

Thanks goes out to G311 for this hand off.
Pours a pale copper color w/ a generous amount of head...thick lacing remains as I give this one a swirl.
Inviting aroma of citrus hop up front. Some grassy notes with a biscuit quality with a lingering nose.
Taste is very nice. Balance of spicy and citrus makes this a surprisingly hoppy pale ale. Even the bitterness shows up after each sip and lingers for quite some time. Mouthfeel starts out juicy but finishes very dry thanks to that bitterness.
Easy drinking here. A nice surprise. Thanks for the chance Vince.

First experience with SunKing, and I will be trying more of their variety's. This reminded me a lot of Alpha King. Awesome amber color with a nice head that stays around awhile. Powerful smells of citrus. Great flavor. Citrusy with nice hops. Very well balanced beer. I think I might actually prefer this to Alpha King, but I'd have to try them side by side to be sure.

Update: Just had this in the can. Still awesome. Even better drinking it on my couch.

Thanks to Jon and Dan @thefullpint.com for this!

Clear orange with golden yellow edges. Quickly disappearing white head but lots of sticking, messy lacing left on the glass.

Orange citrus aromas are dominant, as well as a touch of spice and bready malts.

Relatively bitter for a pale ale, though there's wonderful pine and citrus flavors coming through as well and some graham cracker sweetness. Very well balanced and delicious.

Medium to thick bodied, though finishes dry and is incredibly drinkable. I would guess this was an IPA.

A delicious, refreshing, easy drinking pale ale. Fantastic!

Straight out the can at Canfest. Light orange/auburn color, nice color. Pretty mild hop aroma coming out of it. Some sweet lightly buttered malt aroma.

Taste, pretty ho hum. Hopping not anything to write home about. Malt sweetness is fairly middle of the road. A little metallic with its bitterness. Some caramel and toffee, makes me think of that caramel corn stuff you get in cracker jacks. Still underwhelmed by the hops, whether it be the aroma, taste or mouthfeel, they just come off as a Midwestern Germanic stab at a pale ale instead of it being an American or West Coast hoppy pale, which the latter is generally preferred these days and with this taster.

It did not go easy on the bitterness, but it just obscured a lot I'm guessing. I think they sent some old cans to Canfest, like many of the breweries did.
