I'm not sure this one lived up to its high rating, although it was a very tasty beer. Deep amber color with a malty start that was quickly overpowered by strong hop flavor.

Frank (3299) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Dark amber. Tons of lace. Terrific amounts of hops in the nose. Loaded with grapefruit and pine notes. A bit on the thin side for a beer of such gravity and bitterness.

I think this maybe the best APA I have tasted yet! A very well balanced brew. Nice aroma and finish.

BeerMonkey (11) - Lansing, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2003
I enjoyed the appearance and flavor of Alpha going down, but the hop kick doesn't lend itself to smooth drinking for me.

ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2003
Awesome label art. sweet fruity nose, with sweet front and fruity hops finish. Much sweeter and less hopier than I was expecting, but still very good.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Reddish gold with a small light head. Nose of hops. Taste astingently, dryly refeshing. Hops and sweet malt, but less malt backbone than I would have expected. Different from Hop Devil, Different from Stone Ruination. Less pine and orange than the first, less grapefruit than the second, less malt than either. Great dry and bitter finish with sticky hoppy mouthfeel. A really enjoyable pale ale.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Like the dreadnaught but toned down a little. Nice orange/copper color with a slight head and loaded with hops. Very welll balanced with malt.

A very nice pale ale, yet another of the beer payments made to me for painting brock's basement. Lots of hops as would be assumed. Interesting malt flavors involving some fruits of the citrus kind.
