COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grapefruit Jungle is a west coast-style I.P.A. Aptly named for the rich grapefruit characteristics of the three hops used to create it, Grapefruit Jungle is bursting with hop flavor and aroma. With the equivalent of one pound of hops in every keg, Grapefruit Jungle is a hop loverís dream!

Can... Strong citrus aroma - grapefruit for sure, but thatís not all. Peels from a medley of citrus fruits. Medium-bodied with buoyant carbonation. The flavor tilts far into the bitter side of balance, but abundant medium-roast malts make their presence known. Bittersweet, rindy finish. Can shipped my way by StFun!

16oz can shared by Dan P. at JohnGonk's sons birthday party. Poured a haY dark orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus skins, and fresh cut grapefruit. Taste of pine right off the bat, followed by caramel malt, fresh grapefruit, and citrus zest.

Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a smaller khaki head. Nose was quite subdued and malty, some citrusy orange trying to peek through the caramel malt. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, not especially intense. Medium bodied, oily, grainy, finishing a bit dull. Not really impressed with this. Iíve had some good hoppy brews from Sun King, but this was not one of them.

Draft. Pour is amber, white head. Good retention/lace. Aroma of citrus, floral, pine, caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter, pine, grapefruit, light sweetness. Palate is soft, oily, fruity finish

Love all the citrus that comes through during the aromas and taste of this IPA. Acquired this via a trade and was my first from this brewery.

Growler from the Sun King tasting room. A medium amber, clear pour with a one inch head. Hoppy aroma. A hoppy, carbonated bite with a little sweetness and tart citrus at the end. Finishes with hoppy bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
