Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.’s most popular double IPA may be getting a hopped-up variant.

According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the Decorah, Iowa-based brewery will be canning Double Dry-Hop King Sue, a double IPA brewed with Citra hops before being packaged in 500ml bottles. As the name indicates, it will be a variant of the brewery’s King Sue, a 8 percent ABV double IPA that debuted in 2014.

Like another of Toppling Goliath’s IPAs named Pseudo Sue, King Sue is a collaboration with The Field Museum in Chicago and is named after Sue, the famous 40-foot long Tyrannosaurus rex fossil that is on display in the museum.

An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not returned.

I am an editor of Tenemu. In my former life, I was a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram for almost seven years and a documentary wedding photographer for almost 13 years. I have been drinking craft beer in various incarnations for about seven years. I shoot and edit many of the sites, assist in staff management, cover news and assist in running Tenemu's social media accounts. My focus is on reviewing stouts, gose, lambics, fruit, and smoked beers, although I also enjoy quite a few hours and some IPAs when not reviewing. In what little free time I have, I enjoy smoking cigars, photographing various art projects, and pretending that I can cook something edible.
