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.

Modern times does it again. Tropical and fruity ipa, but with some dank, funky flavors. Peppery and wheaty, but basically an imperial ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy bright orange color with a moderate sized head of creamy white foam. Soft guava and mango notes on the aroma. Semi-aggressive tropical hop flavor that is kind of sticky as advertised.

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

On tap. Pours a clear amber with light head. Aromas of pineapple, pine, muddled fruit, and sweet malts. Flavours of sharp grapefruit, resin, dried tropical fruit and doughy malts. Long piney finish. Good stuff.
