This beer rocks! It's cloudy orange to yellow body is full of hoppy details & packed with citrus! There's a great sweet note from the malts & it's feels so good in your mouth you almost want to chug it! This is a perfect beer in my opinion & you need to get your hands on it if you can. Delicious!

I hate to go with the perfect 5 but this one deserves it... Amazingly hoppy and fruity, melon, citrus, super "dank" if-you-will. Reminds me so much of Maine Beer Co. "Dinner". Light copper color, fruit bouquet aroma, what i want beer to taste like, bubbly and crisp, perfect. not much more to say...

Re-review. Had out of a bomber that was purchased during the MD release.

L: Nice gold hazy color
S: Powerful hoppy nose
T: Wonderfully balanced mosaic hop bomb in my mouth.
F: Perfect IP mouthfeel. Nice carb, nice balance throughout.
O: I had this before and thought it was good. This batch was seriously amazing. King Sue has been my favorite hop brew from TG, but this brew was was right there. Different hop. Less juicy and dryer, but this was absolutely the best mosiac hopped beer I have ever had!

Sosus is my 2nd Favorite (non stout) offering from TG...second only to King Sue. Sosus is an outstanding TG beer with awesome smooth hops character!

Appearance: A gorgeous straw bail color with a finger of white head and nice lacing.
Smell: An instant reminder of my favorite beer of the year by Indeed Brewing: LET IT RIDE. A mosaic hop beer where they use four pounds per barrel. It's the perfect balance between citrus, a slight tropical sweetness, and a clean finish with some classic midwest dankness. Juicy, but not as much as King Sue, which really makes it even more amazing. One of my favorite DIPA'S alongside let it ride, scream, king sue, sucks.
