Sun King Fistful of Hops - First Quarter Blue Can

The Sun King Brewery is in Indianapolis, Indiana. This IPA is part of their Fistful of Hops series of four, one for each season, I believe it is the "Winter" version, or the "first quarter" of the year. It is 6.4% ABV and 75 IBU's.

The beer pours a clear, yet deep, copper and amber in color. There is an inch or so of off-white head. The aroma is bright, hoppy, fruity, piney, grassy, tangy, citrus, light berry, and light passion fruit. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, and drinking crisp and refreshing. It is bitter like tonic water, with all the hop notes lying on a bed of toasted malt with a hint of caramel sweet. It is nicely carbonated and easy to drink.
