COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American pale ale was brewed with our friends and co-political activists at Sun King Brewing Co. This beer was brewed to raise awareness about our legislative push to redefine what a micro brewery is in Indiana. Under 2010 law, small breweries were limited to 20,000 barrels. Thanks to the work of Sun King and other Indiana craft brewers this was raised to 30,000 barrels on April 11, 2011. Although this is a great gain more work needs to be done with legislature to help craft beer grow in Indiana. Call your representative to let them know what valuable small businesses craft breweries are.

Draft sample at SK. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

A decent and well rounded pale ale. Had this after Zombie Dust and it doesn’t compare at all. I was a little disappointed with this beer especially with all the hype surrounding it. Good nonetheless, just not great.

If this were the standard for Pale Ale we would all be a little happier in life.

Nice summery pale ale. Almost wheat ale coloring. Grapefruit and grassing hops. Slightly tart and crisp. Serving: Growler from Brewpub

aroma is hops, sweet, citrus. one finger head disipates to thin ring. Straw color, clear, nice head, semi cloudy. High hops, low malt. Woody, piney, and citrus taste. Palate is crisp, clear, and refreshing. This one was different with the piney and citrus taste. A must try!

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2011
Draft at 3F brewpub. Pale gold and slightly cloudy with a delicate and quickly disappating head. Mild citrus hop nose, slight pine. Very full body for a pale ale, notes of honey and citrus. Refreshing and easy drinking. A great middle of the road offering from floyds but nothing to write home about.
