Poured from a bottle. Deep gold/copper color. Off white head. Aroma of citrus and sour plums. Bitter grapefruit with some malt sweetness. OK. Not nearly the best pale or IPA. Don't understand the hype on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Honestly, this is pretty close to perfect. A little more malt and it would be. Lives up to the hype. Hop aroma followed by more hop aroma. Flavor is citrusy with much less bitterness than you would expect. Easy to put back. Since I don’t ride a 10 speed anymore and I’m not a cutter, it’s the only reason to live in Indiana. Love that it’s 6.66% ABV!

An unusually smooth IPA that meets every expectation. This beer fully deserves the perfect rating.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle cheers to Guy! Pours dark golden brown. Big aroma of orange, pine, bubblegum and caramel. Lots of hop and malt character, but super balanced. Flavours are sweet orange, grapefruit, loads of caramel and resin. Nice bitter finish, not overpowering. Too good!

TheBear11D (284) - Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Alpha King pours a mostly cloudy rusty copper with a thick foamy beige head that lasts forever. The aroma is citrus, orange, lemon, pine and floral hops. The flavor is citrus, caramel, orange and floral hops. Overall this is a very nice beer. The beer drinks smoothly and the aftertaste is citrus and floral hops. Delicious!

Fat på Mikkeller Bar. Mörkt röd dimmig. Svårt att hitta dofter. Smak av röda bär. Bra APA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an amber color with a rich off-white head. Citrus aroma is present but not overpowering. Flavor is initially sweet caramel malt quickly balanced by the grapefruit and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is good throughout. Finish is like a crisp apple. Reminds me of a Pseudo Sue or a slightly less aggressive Hopslam. Very well balanced and drinkable.
