look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured cold from the tap at macniven's a translucent sunlight gold to a 9oz pilsner with just a hint of a white head (likely due to the careful pour I'm guessing)

big grapefruit hops aroma, and more grapefruit.

huge citrus hops up front. it's a seriously hop bomb. perhaps its the afterthought of the stout that came before it, but it seems ti me that there's a bit of a malty follow-up now that it's a half empty glass(?) likely the best IPA i've had from sun king.

light bodied, big bitter all over the palate, big carbonation.

overall - great big hop bomb, nice DIPA.
