Toppling Goliath King Sue

The Toppling Goliath Brewing Company is in Decorah, Iowa.  This is, I believe, pretty much a doubled up version of their Citra hopped pseudoSue.

The beer pours a completely cloudy light orange in color, like fresh squeezed pink grapefruity juice with a bit of pulpy orange juice poured in. There is a tall, thick, foaming head of white. The aroma is a blast of dankness, fruit and citrus. There is mango skin, passion fruit, and citrus. There is also musky, earthy dankness. The taste follows the aromas, big, chewy, round, ripe, lush, fulsome. The finish is dry, with a moderate bitterness, some grapefruit astringency, citrus rinds and peels. The beer is smooth and round, with a tingle of carbonation. Massive!
