Citra Hops give King Sue its bold flavors of mango, orange and pineapple. This double dry-hopped version packs even more flavor into each bottle.

Pale, yellow, thick and juicy looking, so hazy, you can’t see through it! Topped with one finger of fast dissipating, white head. The smell is of orange, citrus, a hint of pine. Certainly not as pronounced as I was expecting. The taste is very fruity and juicy, like a perfect refined, orange juice, with a hint of dank Ness, and an abundance of tropical notes but all very muted. Light and foamy, feeling body, very smooth! I’ve been anticipating this brew for a long time I got it at beer hub in Waynesville North Carolina and I’m drinking in Maggie Valley August 12, 2023. I must admit the hype around this set my expectations quite high, and it is a great beer. However, not nearly as perfect as I was expecting. But certainly worth searching out.

Poured the requisite opaque yellow orange with a growing manilla colored head. No floaties to be seen.
The aroma is lost on my Covid damaged nose. Stupid Covid.
The taste was a tale of two beers- at first it was magnificent with citrus notes and a hint of piney pith. I’m thinking this is awesome!
Then I let it warm up a bit and it shifted to a dryer, more pithy taste. No idea why, it was still really good, just not magnificent.
The feel is solid, smooth and no chunks of anything. Easy quaffing.
OA, good, nay, great DIPA and I may get more. Or I might just stick with regular King Sue.

Draught pour at Champps Americana in Brookfield, WI. This was a bit of a letdown - a solid (D)NEIPA for sure, but it is VERY green, not quite vegetal but definitely not an improvement over the original. I have no idea how old the key is, but assuming it is very fresh, perhaps the beer improves after a couple of weeks?

Look...A beautiful vibrant light orange with a ton of carbonation and white foamy head. A proper looking unfiltered DIPA
Smell...A burst of orange, pineapple, pink grapefruit, mango, and all types of floral aromas. a dank grass is fielded by the dry hopping imbibing a pungency
Taste...Orange bitter pineapple express with the dank hoppy bitterness with the dry component i believed caused by the dry hopping
Feel...An astringent juice feel with a sticky convergence of foam . Great carbonation launching a good fullness.
Overall...This beer I tried today for the 4th time is one of the elite beers i get to try. Sometimes a beer just hits you and says WOW and this for me has that quality. King Sue its close cousin I felt the first time i had that too!! If you see this beer and like unfiltered DIPas you would be a fool not to pick this up. I saw in one of the other reviews had this at 25 before tax and deposit and that is steep but damn this beer is nice . I paid 20 before tax and deposit but i was on the lookout for this to try for a while and I am not disappointed

As advertised - a more vibrant, flavorful version of King Sue. Expensive, at $24.95 for 4. Flavorful, but the alcohol remains under control. Prefer the DDH version & would like to do again.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a fizzy one finger head. The fades fast leaving some light soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is orange, pineapple and grapefruit.

T - The taste is orange, grapefruit peel, pineapple and a big kick of piney hops.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with a soft fizzy finish.

O - Really solid, but maybe a tad bit overrated.
