Long live the King. King Sue that is. Her ferocious bite will make sure all newcomers learn to toe the line. And what better way to exude her influence than with this Citra Hopped Double IPA. Followers will cheer. Enemies will crumble. But don’t take her lightly, because when this double IPA is on a rampage, nothing will stand in her way…

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2014 served in souvenir taster. Hazy yellow-orange body with a very tall white head. I got the very last pour, so it was coming out of a pitcher that was used to let the foam settle after the keg kicked. Lots of lacing and a persistent head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits, grass, and some bready malts once you cut through the Citra onslaught. Taste is a light citrus/tropical sweetness initially followed by moderate grass and citrus peel bitterness on the finish. Medium body, very creamy texture (thought this might have been because the keg kicked, but others seem to agree), average to soft carbonation, dry finish with a nice lingering bitterness.

Look- The shiny glimmering light from the King's Crown.

Smell- The death of oranges, grapefruit and earthy hops from the King's slain enemies.

Taste- Sweet, Sweet victory and spoils!

Feel- Relaxing on the throne without a care in the world.

Overall- The battle was fierce but in the end the King always wins. If you mess with the King you shall be boiled and sit to rot 2-3 weeks.

Murky and oddly oxidized, though I was told the bottle was fresh. No bottle date unfortunately.
