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…

First bottled batch, bottled 1 day prior to review. (Note: I had this on tap twice previously and thought it was far better so perhaps the first bottled batch was a bit off…still great though)

Appearance: Very hazy/murky orange, yellow hue, absolutely the murkiest DIPA I’ve drank (almost makes Heady Topper seem clear). Good head and lacing.

Aroma: Great mango, tropical fruits and citrus layered over some slight oniony & vegetal aroma. Very similar to Pseudo Sue but a bit less fruit forward…a little more dank and slightly vegetal.

Taste: Very dry and bitter, possibly a little too dry and bitter. Fruity & citrusy but I get much less in the flavor than in the aroma. Flavor is good, but not near as impressive as the aroma

Mouthfeel: Pretty Good, sort of velvety/creamy….and nicely resinous…maybe a little over-carbonated.

Don’t get me wrong this is an excellent DIPA to be sure, but it’s not a world class beer like Pseudo Sue is. It’s also not quite on par with Heady or Pliney, but it’s definitely a top 20 DIPA. However, I definitely prefer the baby brother (Pseudo Sue) to this.

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