Very pleasant session beer and a good example of an american pale. Light, drinkable with a decent malt backbone, but hops dominate. It’s moderately bitter and heavy on the citrus. Finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.

Tall can from trade. Aroma was of grassy and piney hops. Flavor was the same, but the palate was rather thin. I could see one consuming mass quantities of this brew. Pretty good beer.

16 oz. can supplied by StFun -- many thanks! Served at 52½°F on a breathtakingly alluring spring day.
To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours an orange with which a sudsy off-white head 1½ fingers in length stood.
Aromas of bar soap, chives, beach sand, herbal hops, and American ale yeast.
Tastes much the same with the addition of chalk dust, sweat, and damp cardboard. Not much hop flavor, which was a letdown.
Decent drinking for a pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can, courtesy StFun. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow and topped by a small, off white foamy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma shows notes of light, floral hops, light citrus, and some fresh grass all atop a pale malt base. The flavor follows with some light citrus, and fresh cut grass to go with floral hop bitterness. The pale bready malts adds a touch of sweetness to go with the light bitterness from the hops. Light bodied on the palate with good carbonation and a lingering floral hop bitterness on the finish. This is an easy drinking pale ale, but just lacks that something extra to set it apart.

16 oz. can pours a clear light orange color with small white head ad good lacing. Aroma is full of citrus fruits, bready malts, and and a bit of pine. Taste is bitter, but not outrageously so, with some malt sweetness in the middle and some pine coming out in the long finish. Body is medium with average carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. A very good APA, and my first from Sun King.

can from bmoosey. nice punch of citrus in aroma; a kind of creamy citrus? palate was med and maybe even thin - sometimes not much there until hops kicked in. Taste has some citrus but hops a little strong and bitter for my non ipa liking self.

aroma is very light pine, mostly dull wet grains. appearance is tranlucent deepened amber, filmy head, good lacing. flavor is orange zest, fresh lemon leaves which unfortunately come across as artificial at times. fresh pale malt not nearly as grainy here as in nose, great balance but zero pine or other sharp hop character

A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.
