Beer Review: King Sue from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

King Sue from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company




For the first time ever on Tavour, the KING of Toppling Goliath is here – King Sue!

As one of Business Insider’s 17 Most Sought-after Beers in America, we tried to get as many cans as we could, but the King won’t be able to grace everyone’s crate.

If you’re lucky enough to grab a few, be ready for friends knocking down your door, offering up ice chests full of their most prized beers for a single sip of King Sue!

It’s no surprise this royal brew is so coveted, King Sue’s trophy shelf claims some impressive titles like..



  • The #4 American-Style IPA on BA
  • One of Thrillist’s 33 Hottest IPAs in America
  • Even Business Insider Australia calls King Sue one of the Top 25 Beers in the World!





Crowned with Citra Hops, this Double IPA is gowned in vivid notes of lush mango and bright citrus.

Lusciously hazy, King Sue adorns an aroma of tropical fruit with hints of fresh pineapple.

And the resinous finish holds the 7.8% ABV on a hoppy pedestal.

After experiencing today’s royal-status brew, you’ll join an exclusive TG club and pledge neverending loyalty — All hail, King Sue!




A thick dank murky pour that’s Dino-lusciously bright yellow and hazy with a generous white spongy head!

The bottom of the glass contained white floaters that looked like oat meal.

I was informed it’s due to the un-filtering process.



Heavy tropical fruits, pineapple, tangerine, hoppy grapefruit and passionfruit.


Flavor Profile:

  • Tangerine
  • Mango
  • Grapefruit
  • Pineapple
  • Passionfruit
  • Mildly Hoppy



It’s been hazy the past two weeks in Simi Valley as the beer journey continues.

King Sue poured like a glass of pungent grapefruit juice with accompanying bouquet of tropical flavors to boot.

The double hazy IPA produced a mild-bitter hoppy finish with a thick silky mouthfeel
