My favorite pale ale. Perfec in almost every way. This was purchased at the brewrey in a growler and enjoyed during the Super Bowl. The most beautiful aroma, very flowery, citrusy. Perfect balance of malt and hoppy finish. Had to sniff the bottle the next morning. Again this was a growler bottled at the brewrey so freshness was peak. Nice thick head. Delicious orange/amber color. Very hppy but with a nice malty spike that made it so enjoyable I almost drove back to Munster, IN for another. So far this is my favorite pale ale.

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!

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!

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.

2 month old bottle. Orange-red, off-white head. Nose and taste are bready malts, some bitter hops to the finish. Sticky body. Man this fell off fast. Will re-rate when I try it fresh.

Aroma is straight pine and citrus. Not extremely bitter like an IPA but strong pine and citrus flavor like one. This is my kind of pale ale. Most would consider this a hoppy IPA. Well done

12 oz bottle purchased at 3 Floyds just last week. Pours a bright clear orange with brilliant copper hues when backlit. Head is a thick lasting rocky cap of foam that left thick lacing down the entire glass as the beer was consumed. Aroma is citrusy hop bitterness with orange and grapefruit, and caramel malt. Flavor is same with hops very prominent for a pale ale. Medium bodied, full active carbonation, and pleasant bitter finish. Always great to have this beer, especially this fresh.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a big beige head. Aromas of pine, grassy hops, citrus, grape, some floral notes aswell. Taste is pretty piney and grassy hops up front, settles for some grapefruit bitterness along with some caramel malt and citrus-like notes. Very smooth body. Should’ve probably had it when it was all fresh but I simply forgot I had it. Lol.
