Toppling Goliath King Sue

Toppling Goliath King Sue  Double India Pale Ale. Toppling Goliath Brewing Compay, Decorah, Iowa. 8.5% ABV. 100 IBU.

Lightly clouded, bright golden, huge head. Gorgeous.

In the nose: a burst of citrus and tropical fruits, some stones, too, peach and nectarine. It's plump and aplomb with all the goodies.

In the mouth: oh, my. oh, me. oh, whoa. Big time hoppitude here. Huge hops. Sue is the master of the fields, stomping over the pineapples and peaches, the lemons and limes. Squashing them all and spraying the juices about. Damnably delicious.

Gobbledygook from the label: "Long live the king. King Sue that is. Her Ferocious bite will make sure all newcomers learn to toe the line and what better way to exude her influence than with this Citra hopped double IPA. Followers will cheer, enemies will crumble, but don;t take her lightly, when this double IPA is on a rampage nothing will stand in her way."
