cartonbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Traded for this a while back, as the date on the bottom of the can was 1/9 with "[email protected]" 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.

Thanks to Tom for this one. The smell is pure hops. Smell gets better as it warms. Taste is pure hops. This is one great Triple IPA.
