look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy gold color with a tinge of green. Moderate head which leaves two rings of lace and streaks in between.

Citrusy with a punch like sweet fruitiness. Beautiful floral hop nose.

The hop becomes biting with definite grapefruit overtones. The sweetness is also gone, although it's not quite dry. No notable wheat. Good body with subdued carbonation. While bitter the aftertaste is short. Overall, this has the complexity I like to have in a beer.

Pours slightly hazy, orange-yellow in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is tangerine, citrus hops, grapefruit rind, and light wheat. Medium bodied, slightly bitter with moderate carbonation. Makes for a tasty summer beer. I like other beers in the style more but this is tasty.

12oz can poured into a pint glass shows a bright yellow-gold body with random rising bubbles and supports a 1/2in of white foam with relatively good retention.

Aroma is mostly clean with wheat and citrus notes.

Flavor matches with more distinct grapefruit peel, lemon and tangerine.

Mouthfeel is light and almost crisp, but a little hang-y at the finish. Not exactly sticky, but it leans that way. All day drinkable.

Overall a clean lighter wheat ale for out on the links.

Sun Crusher brewed by Revolution Brewing, with an ABV of 5.30% This American Pale Wheat Ale pours out a cloudy amber color with a nice white head. This is an unfiltered brew, you can not see though this brew. There is also some decent lacing to this brew, it does stick to the side of the glass. This brew was poured into a pint beer glass from a 12oz can. The smell is rich with hop bitterness and citrus sweetness. There is also a nice amount of earthy grains and malts in the smell as well. Between the look and smell this is a inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with flavors. You first pick up on the grapefruit bitterness with hoppy finish. The earthy grains and malts make this brew smooth and enjoyable. You also pick up on orange and other citrus flavors in this brew as well. If you are not a fan or hops or grapefruit this is not a brew for you. Sun Crushler has a super nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. This brew would go nice on a warm summer day. This brew puts you in the summer mood. The body of Sun Crusher is a solid medium. The mouth feel is Bold, Hoppy, Citrus, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give this brew a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity too. Revolution Brewing did a real nice job with this brew.

Pours an orangey golden yellow with a touch of chill haze and particulate.

Floral and citrusy hop notes.

A smidge of orange and lemon-pith with sweet toasted malt flavor.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall, while nothing to write home about, a nice brew on a hot day.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lemony and orange citrus aromas are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of wheat.
M: It feels a little more than being light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite flavorful for the style—the hop flavors are more like you would expect from an American Pale Ale.
