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.

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.

Pours a murky yellow. Olotnwith an inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.
Very drinkable. Nice citrus hops, fruity malts. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a really nice hoppy pale ale; would love to have it again.

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.

Sun Crusher pours a brighter golden color, with a big long lasting and lacing head. Nice sweet aroma, creamy wheat, and hints of citrus fruits. Flavor is creamy and crisp, hints of citrus, and just a note of the hops. Good body and feel. Overall, a very well crafted beer, hops are not overpowering, but present.
