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.

Poured from a 16 oz an dated 12/21/2017. Aroma is very hop forward with some nice citrus and tropical fruit notes. Moderate pine and resin balance out the fruit and add a bit of a dank character. Light cracker malt notes and a hint of alcohol. Pours a somewhat hazy, golden orange with a medium sized, thick, pillowy white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers. Medium lacing and small legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with some cracker malt and biscuit notes. Medium high bitterness with some light alcohol notes. Flavor is fairly fruity with some mango, melon, passion fruit and tangerine. Medium light dank, piney resin notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice IPA; I'm glad I can just grab a 4-pack of this from my local Whole Foods. Its not up there with Moonraker or some of the super juicy IPAs, but its really nice.

neongolden (1994) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2017
(On tap @ Mikkeller Viktoriagade, Copenhagen, Dec 15/17) Pours murky burnt orange with a white head and sheet of lace. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, guava, overripe fruit, flowers, some malt. Flavour is grapefruit, orange zest, guava, lots of flowers, rather soapy, overripe peach, malt is lightly caramel-tinged and a bit bready, low to moderate bitterness. Slightly below medium bodied, fairly low carb. Decent but the malt and soapy hop character are both not in line with my tastes. Fresh, but their one offs at the brewery are on a much higher level.

thewolf (12932) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2017
Tap @Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade. Pours light murky dark yellow with a small, staying creamy white head. Aroma has bergamot, resin, pine, lime peel, firm maltiness. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine, chewy sweet malts. Bergamot, quite solid bitterness. Great as well.

Modern Times does it again! Solid IPA. Pours a hazy peachy golden tone. Nice bouquet of citrusy hops (seems like a trend with IPAs these days but no complaints here). Smooth, juicy mouthfeel with a pleasant finish of piney bitterness. Just plain delicious.
