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.

Slightly cloudy deep golden hue with a huge fluffy white sticky head. Big delightful aroma that’s floral and sticky and citrus zesty and gooseberry. Big bright floral bitter flavor with tropical fruity tones like grapefruit and pineapple. Huge complex hop bitterness and flavor with a little grapefruit and slightly golden caramelly malt base.

ffaoe (1088) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2018
Light citrus and pine aromas. Gold and lightly hazy in color with decent head. Taste is of pine, citrusy, faint resin notes.

FlacoAlto (4247) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2018
A steady poor produces a two-finger thick, pale tan tinged head. The beer is a hazy straw-gold color, that shows a hazy, orange tinged, golden Q when held up to the light. The aroma has a juicy fruit-hop character to it that just jumps out of the glass. It is very smooth and at times almost candied like and its fruit character. Aromas of mandarin orange, tangelo zest, orange sherbet, floral apricot

The beer has very little bitterness up front, with just a bit in the Finish; there is just enough to provide some balance but over all this is focused on the smooth, fruity side of the hot character. The body of the beer has a soft, viscous texture to it, that lightly coats the palate, there is a soft medium carbonation that provides some prickly texture as well. The fruit character has lots of citrus zest character, with notes of tangerine, Curacao Orange, mandarin orange, and tangelo.

With the hazy and huge fruit focus of the Hop character here this seems like a West Coast interpretation of an East Coast IPA. This is quite well done and very tasty, something I am thoroughly enjoying and plan on getting more of until it runs out.

gururyan (731) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 22, 2018
I'm having difficulty finding faults in this beer. Mouthfeel is heavier than expected; it's a 7.1 that feels like 11.7 in the mouth. That's it, that's all I can criticize. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

murzyn (721) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 13, 2018
Barwa złota, piana średnia. Aromat pomarańczy, ananasów, grapefruit, pieczywo. W smaku cytrusowo, owoce tropikalne, lekka cytrusowa goryczka. Spoko pifko.

MikeBeermaster (1222) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - FEB 12, 2018
Aroma of hop pellets with some herbal citrusy notes, maybe bit floral character with exotic touch. Aroma isn't very intense. Hazy golden in the glass with a medium head. Taste is semi sweet with notes citrus, exotic fruitiness, bit herbal hoppy finish. Simple, but not really ass kicking.

IndianaRed (5298) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2018
On tap at the HandleBar, Boise Hazy deep golden orange. Nice off white head. A good balance of citrus and pineybhop aromas and flavors. Pretty big and a full smooth body.
