UPDATED: OCT 31, 2011 I’ve had this in bottles and on tap at Three Floyds in Munster, IN. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Amazing hop bouquet on the nose with pungent notes of pine and citrus and a hint of booze. Taste is very hoppy, citrus, grapefruit with strong hop bitterness on the finish. Really closer to an IPA than an APA. I love this beer. A must-try for hop-heads.

Pours a nice orange color with a nice 1 1/2 finger head. The Aroma is big citrus. It smells like a west coast IPA. Little pine with a touch of a malty character. The taste is amazing!! It is IIPA flavor with a very smooth backbone. The citrus and pine hit like a nice west coast IPA. Truly amazing!

Hands down, one of the top IPAs on the market. Delicious. Only distributed in four states, so be sure to get one when in Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan.

The is my favorite beer of all time. We can’t get enough of it in St. Louis. We have to get it ourselves in Chicago -- when we can find it -- and bring it back home!

This is probably my standard hoppy drink. Nice citrus hops and just enough malt to keep me coming back for more.

Alpha King is a complete and well balanced American Pale Ale. All elements come together to make this an outstanding all around beer.

Aroma: resin, floral, citrus. Appearance: golden, amber, hazy, rocky head, tan foam. Taste: light sweetness, very bitter, It’s earthy, citrusy, and resiny all at once. Pineapple, lemon zest, orange and pine. Palate: sticky, medium body, lively, astringent, bitter. Overall: One of my favorites!

This is my favorite beer. It is a well balanced hoppy beer that will leave you wanting more. There is a reason why Three Floyd’s calls this their Flagship Beer!

One of the easiest to drink beers. Great hop choices make for great aroma and hoppy citrus taste without the bitter after taste of an IPA.
