This beer pulls off the tightrope act that makes an incredible IPA. Big hop flavors and complexity with just enough malt back to make you want more. The best beer made by an Indianapolis based brewery hands down, and that's a feat considering the amount of competition. Well done Sun King, wish this was available all year. Of course it probably helps that I'm drinking a beer that was canned 5 days ago.

Poured from a tallboy into a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper-caramel coloring with a low profile, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of passion fruit, kiwi, mango, orange, and grapefruit all hit the nose, with some subtle caramel and floral hops notes a little deeper in. Flavors are fruity and rich forward, heavy on the tropical fruit notes, with a solid layer of passion fruit, melon, and grapefruit. Slick and tangy caramel backbone, with roasted overtones, and a dank, resinous, hoppy character providing some solid bitterness. Oily slick and full bodied, with a fruity sweet and richly bitter aftertaste. The finish is dank and bitter, slick and smooth, with a solid linger. Good IPA.
