COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
City of the Sun is a big, fruity, pungent, sticky, delicious IPA. Mosaic & Motueka give it a very fruity hop character, with Simcoe providing enough of a piney backbone to prevent it from going off the deep end. The complex but unobtrusive malt character gives it a medium body and a platform for the saturated hop flavor.

Jesus wept I wanna be part of any theocracy that has this as the house pint. As texted to Nathan Also bought city of the sun which is a ridiculously good IPA from modern times. I could drink it forever! Finishes at 1.008 so mentally dry but supported by lavish hopping Ugh I think I’m in love. I’ve got this romantic notion there’s a beer for every occasion in your life and think this could tick the box in several. Lush
