Deep orange in color with an opaque, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a moderate creamy, white foam with good retention. Mellow, dank, citrus aromas, orange and sweet melon with light malty notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation, a lightly smooth feel. Mellow, dank, citrus flavors and sweet fruitiness, with light malty notes. Medium light bitterness through the middle followed fruity citrus and melon flavors followed by light piney notes. Finished semi-dryly with citrus and piney hop notes and light sweet booziness. Juicy, tasty, hoppy, dank, and very drinkable.

Look: Hazy cream-orange with a large tan head.

Smell: Tons of juicy orange and grapefruit. Minty herbal hop aroma. Hints of vanilla and hop dankness.

Taste: Orange juice, hops, grapefruit, and more orange juice. Hop flavor is present throughout and nicely balanced, no bitterness. Huge juicy-hazy IPA flavor. A hint of alcohol warmth.

Feel: Creamy and crisp.

Overall: Really delicious, just loaded with hop flavor but not overpowering. This is the third beer I've had from this brewery, and I've been impressed every time.

hearty, the most hop saturated beer I've had for quite a while, very full body.
this beer is really good I actually might like this one more than King Sue, yummy, I've been missing it all the time, sadly it's hard to get this beer in NJ

can to a tulip glass. just after sampling NUGMO.

LOOK: darker yellow. healthy off white head
Aroma: grass and some muted citrus fruits. strength of aroma about 4/10.
TASTE: orange, musty grape, pineapple,palm, muted sweetness.
FEEL: pretty smooth, medium body, light carbonation.

Not as good as Nugmo, so a bit overrated IMHO, but still a nice smooth sipping DIPA.

a: hazy burt orange and fluffy yellow color. a hint of light yellow, and a fluffy 1 finger off-white head

s: dank pineapple, mango, strawberry, and grass. sweet caramel, and a touch of sugar. passionfruit and apricots. a little bit of garlic and onion. sweet orange juice and a touch of candied lemon. really nice aroma on this

t: follows the nose nicely. dank grass, onion, garlic, and pineapple. sweet mango, dragonfruit, and peach. strawberry and white sugar. papaya, and orange juice behind that. there's an herbal bitterness towards the end here as well as some bready malts. however, the bitterness is very minimal

m: lighter side of full on the mouthfeel with moderate carbonation

o: this is a really nice NEDIPA. it's not overly sweet. has a nice blend of tropical sweetness, earthy notes, and the right amount of malts. the touch of bitterness at the end balances it out nicely

Absolutely delicious double IPA. Just as I expected! 6/25/20 packaged date on can, best by 10/23/20. Pours a darker hazy golden color with some fluffy white head and glorious small soapy sheets of lingering lacing that clung to the glass. Smells of crisp ripe grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, orange, mango, guava, passion fruit. Also some creamy vanilla, malt, lighter floral hops. Taste follows the nose, excellent balance, terrific and easy to drink despite the higher ABV. Smooth, slightly creamy, sticky mouthfeel and great carbonation retention. An outstanding beer!

Look - Fantastic tan-ish, orange-ish yellow super hazy color with a nice lasting sticky white foam
Smell - Super tropical, orange, grapefruit and pineapple with a slight caramel malt backbone and sweet creamy smell
Taste - pineapple orange juice with a splash of grapefruit but not much. Slight caramel malt backbone and a little bit of honey
Feel - Medium full body with a medium lighter carbonation. slight creaminess
Overall - Tasty but the smell is better than the look.

Description: Cloudy, orange/tan color with not head and only minimal lacing. Smell is pineapple, mango, grapefruit, dankness and resin. Strong tropical fruit notes. Taste is milder than the aroma but has the same general flavors with possibly a hint of melon and more grapefruit on the finish. Body is medium to heavy for an IPA with medium carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) A very well constructed, solid IPA. Some reviewers compare it to King Sue and while the two beers have similarities, King Sue is clearly the better of the two in my opinion. I wouldn't necessarily seek this out, especially at its price point, but I wouldn't necessarily pass on it either.

Fresh TG is an extremely welcome addition to the crowded shelves here in PA. Canned 6/25.

Hell and yes this is freakin good. Sweet, juicy tropical fruit, pineapple especially comes to mind. Hints of grapefruit, honey, and honeydew plus plenty more make for an outstanding IPA.

Pours cloudy orange with a 3 finger white head that leaves excellent lacing.

Bright citrus with undertones of stone fruits on the nose and palate. Very flavorful with a medium bitter finish.

Medium smooth mouthfeel.

Another great offering from TP. Very enjoyable and satisfying. Recommended.

Look: Cloudy yellow with a two finger off white head. Retention is good moderate lacing. Hard to see carbonation because of the cloudiness.
Smell: Very fresh and clean. It has the pungent tropical fruit and citrus aroma that Citra and Mosaic hops are known for.
Taste: Sweet on the tip of the tongue and kind of sweet all the way back. I wasn’t expecting a bitterness bomb and it isn’t one despite being 100 IBU. Either the bitterness is attenuated by the malt or my taste buds have adapted. Probably some of each.
Flavor: Full of flavor, like launching a Citra/Mosaic missile into your mouth. There’s ripe, juicy milieu of papaya, tangerine, orange, mango, pineapple, melon, peach, apricot along with notes of lemon, floral, and just a tiny hint of black pepper.
Feel: Light to moderate mouthfeel. Soft carbonation but does kind of tingle the tip of the tongue. Finishes clean.
Overall: Canned three weeks ago has a very fresh presence to it. I thought it tasted like King Sue until I pulled out a King Sue and drank them side by side. It definitely has its own distinct flavor profile. Both beers are top of the line brews. If you like one, you’ll like the other. Supa’ Sumo does not have an aggressive bone it its body. King Sue is a little more in your face. I will be drinking this again, for sure.

16 oz can, canned 7/2/20. Pours hazy orange gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet wheat malt and fruit with big piney hops.

The flavor is sweet wheat malt and some fruit with a big piney resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice hazy DIPA.
