Not much to analyze about SUPEREGOIPA. Sometimes you just covet a dank triple IPA to sip on, so that’s what we made. Multiple hops, multiple malts and multiple yeasts combined in a way to sate the dank side of our passion. Drink SUPEREGOIPA because it’s the dankness you love.

Light amber color. Hazy to the point that it was completely opaque. Small head that quickly disappears.
Smells like hops. Bitter with slight citrus.
Strong hop taste, very bitter and dank. The bitterness somewhat overwhelms the citrus and malt. Definitely let this warm before drinking, otherwise the flavor gets too alcoholic.
Slightly thick feel, with little carbonation.

16 oz can poured into a weizen glass.

Slightly hazy blonde. Short white cap. Light carbonation.

Dank, pine needle, musky mango, papaya, grapefruit, onion, and lemon zest.

Sun-dried pine needles, resin, dank, and pithy grapefruit. Lemon zest, bright florals, and a touch of onion. Overripe mango and slight blueberry. Slight honey maltiness.

Medium-plus bodied, crisp, dry, zesty, smooth, warming, and moderately bitter.

Color me impressed. Just the type of IPA the beer world has been missing for a while now. Very easy drinking for 13% and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

About an 11 on the SRM color index. Smells like mango,pineapple,clove, extreme hoppiness. Tastes like fermented peach,mild garlic,lemon zest,massive malts fading in the background Feels smooth and creamy which is amazing considering the ABV. Medium finish, overall this beer is mind boggling.Carton is an amazing brewery in my opinion. This would taste like S*it from almost any other brewer. I thought DFH 120 minute IPA was really not good. This is a perfect balance for an Imperial quad IPA.

Pours a deep golden : amber, a little on the darker side of golden, slight haze, minimal head. Citrusy aroma, mango, pineapple , lemon. Huge beer! Loads of dank hops (Galaxy?), tongue numbing bitterness, yet still sweet. Lots of mango, papaya, and citrusy lemon rind. Nice malt balance. Carbonation is on point, gives a creamy feel to the beer. Overall a great beer, very tangy, hoppy, and big. ABV is 13% and it tastes like 13% - not a bad thing.

16 oz can from brewery dated 12/29/17
Doesn't get fresher than that!

Happy to be 8th reviewer of 2018 edition of SuperEgo.
Let's first talk about definition of dank.
Classic: disagreeably damp, musty, and typically cold.
synonyms: damp, musty, chilly, clammy, moist, wet, unaired, humid
Urban Dictionary: dark, sticky, gooey, and potent. It was originally a common word to describe disgusting basements and caves ect. Then the world of pot took it over and was using it very correctly to describe very potent strains of marijuana, seeing as the definition of dank meets all the qualities you find in good marijuana.
OK so this 13% heavyweight is urban dank.
a) Pours hazed body that supports a white head that quickly fades down due to ABV. a bit of lace and rim, hazed remainder.
s) Abundant fruit flesh and skin, a fruit carving board, syrupy, malty, juicy. Citrus and piney.
t) Fruit flesh again, ripe peach, pear, apple, over ripe apricot, builds to to pine and earthy, chewy dankness with ABV heat.
f) Fruit smoothie, full-bodied with light carbonation, syrupy, then long finish with drying, peppery abv esters finishing.
o) funny that super ego is the rational part of psyche - this is an extreme, unrational, stoned beer. Nothing rational about it.

Traded for this a while back, as the date on the bottom of the can was 1/9 with "START@44F" written above it. Love the Freudian reference of the name and the artwork on the can but deep down, this beer was true to form as it was quite deep, dank, and layered. Lots going on here but everything worked well together and this never felt or tasted *too* strong though I could feel the buzz kicking in well before I finished this can off!

Good pour to this as the beer had a deep amber hue to it with plenty of haze, head, and a moderate amount of lacing left on the top of my glass after the first few sips. Tons of dank, piney hops in the nose with even more in the taste. Lots of onion, weed, caramel, and metallic burn in the taste underneath it. This was sticky and thick but easy to get hooked on at the same time. Plenty of hops here but this beer had balance as the body was heavy and the carbonation was moderate. Some peat moss could be found in the aftertaste as the onions and scallions gave way to a more earthy and heavy feel. Loved the depth of this beer as it was smooth from start to finish, but not a smooth sipper in addition!

Plenty of booze here but it never felt out of place as it meshed well with everything else that was going on. This was a vast improvement over the EGO as the potency, dankness, and malts took this to another level. One of Carton's better beers, this is one that should be on the list for any fan of their brews. Fun stuff that felt like a good West Coast IPA without the overly waxy and hoppy nature that characterizes most of them!

Canned 1/9/17. A fruit salad Frankenstein'd out of "dank" green onions/scallions; mango, papaya, oregano, berry and perfume. 13% portends a bigger beer, yet this doesn't seem to hit so high; each sip remains easy, and with little hint of the ABV. For me, the strongest branch of the EGO family tree due to its depth. Take time to enjoy all that is offered, sip-by-sip, and you might appreciate Carton's EGO-evolution even more. In any case, a dank "triple IPA" worth its weight on its own.
