Notes: 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.

Pours thick hazy orange white head.
Smell is that great TG citrus hop with something that is reminiscent of the early days of TG. Almost Spicy in a non spicy way.
Flavor is awesome with the same smells transferring.
Delish
Finishes just dry enough. But still balanced and sweet.
Great beer

Virtual IPA share.

Bottle to tulip glass.

Look: dark yellow, deeper in color than king Sue. More haze also. Big eggshell head. Excellent retention.

AROMA: pineapple, palm, peach, mango.

TASTE: pineapple and mango upfront. Touch of leafy bitterness in finish.

Feel: super smooth. Medium to light body.

Excellent all around, though maybe not quite as enjoyable as the regular King Sue.

Pours a murky golden straw color with a fresh white head, Smell is citrus pineapple mango and papaya.. Taste has delicious citra hops very pungent and herbal that feature pineapple and mango ,a good bit tropical citrus. Mouth feel is dry with loads of citra in the finish. Delicious DDH version of the King actually the herbal notes and citra hops reminds me of the OG P Sue from 8-10 years ago ,well done.

Pours a vibrant hazy golden yellow, smell includes juicy pineapple, and some dank, weedy characteristics from the intense dry-hopping. Tastes follows suit with that pineapple. Has noticeably more green hop bite than the regular KS. Mouthfeel is not lacking at all. Creamy. A treat to have. A great Citra showcase.

On tap in a snifter at Three Cellars in Menomonee Falls, WI. Pours a cloudy orange yellow, completely opaque. Huge nose that can be smelled without getting close. Upon closer inspection, notes of mango, pineapple, citrus and a little pine. Very juicy with mostly mango and pineapple on the sip without being overly sweet. A little thinner bodied than I like for the style but doesn't really detract from an otherwise great beer.

Nose is pungent with citrus and some dankness.
Taste is pungent with dankness as well. Powerful flavor.
Smooth with some hop burn.
Overall, it’s the favorite of the sue family I’ve had so far.

Bottled 1-6-21, just over 1 month old. Hazy pale orange with a twofinger tight white head. Aroma is of tangerine juice and dankness. Taste is blast of orange and tangerine juice, soft to low bitterness, hint of garlic and onion towards the end. Light to medium body. Ends dry. Way too easy to drink.
