4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow! My first Three Floyd’s beer and it was awesome. I have really started to enjoy APAs and IPAs so opted for their flagship Alpha King. From the moment you open the bottle you know you’re drinking something great. The aroma has a deep citrus character that has a whiff of grapefruit and is packed with a wide variety of hops. It opens up nicely as it pours and you really get the hops it packs. Appearance was very clear and nice copperish color that had a nice thick white head to start and some moderate lacing.
The taste mirrors the aroma and is packed with a wide variety of fresh citrusy hops that is balanced nicely with a floral accent and some caramel notes. It taste damn good. Very moderate bitterness and no lingering aftertaste.
This is one of my favorite beers and I can’t wait to try some others in their line-up. If they are nearly as good as Alpha King, I’m in for a nice surprise.
