COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moderate malt body and light hopping provides a refreshing brew with a crisp hop bite and a clean finish. Clean malt base and bright citrus aromas give this easy-drinking ale a robust floral hop nose.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Mostly clear golden apricot. Small frothy white head. Steady carbonation. Weak aroma of floral and citric peel hops and light caramel and hay. Soft, lulling and light on the palate. Underlying Pac NW hop base and semi-sticky natured toffee and hay maltiness. Light bodied. Dry with a mild toasted toffee sweetness. Kind of boring but ends with a surge of citric hops and crisper, firmer bite to it. Strange but good.

light APA. great hop aroma, beer was clearly dry-hopped. however I was disappointed that the hoptaste was much milder than the aroma. very smooth palate and has a nice malt base. Hpever the taste goes flat rather quickly.

A good ale, close to itís cousin the Alpha King, but with a less pronounced hop presence. Could be a bit fuller in the body.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2002
The kinder, gentler alpha king? This one maintains a decent hop presence, but itís a quiet strength. It is just a gentle pale, a tad sweet for my taste.

3/12/03: bottle. lightly golden color with no real lacing to mention. i am no expert, but I think that the hops smelled like sentinel. pretty bitter and hoppy-as i expected with notes of orange and citrus. not as stinky as usual for this type of hop.

big rocky head, golden color, a good beer. The two Three Floyds beers Iíve drank both had a slightly similar taste to them, a little British feel. Alpha King is better though.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - FEB 14, 2003
Refresing nose of grapefruit, orange, pineapple, resin, burnt malt, and flowers. Pours from the bottle a sparkling medium golden. The average sized bone colored head is average lasting with good lacing. The satisfying flavor starced with an edge of sweetness, followed by a middle that is heavily acidic with a quenching citrus sourness. The burnt heavily bitter finish is long. The medium lively body is dry and finishes very astringent. Not as good as their Alpha King, but then again - what is?

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2001
Very similar to the regular pale ale made by Three Floyds, but a little less malt in the body. Still very hoppy though. Very drinkable.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Pours a nice clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hoppy with a mild sweetness from the malts. Medium bodied and the flavor is quite nice. Malty sweet, but not a lot, with hops adding a little twang in the finish. Very smooth and clean.

had I not just had an awesome IPA before this, I am sure this score would be higher. good beer, with a nice bite.
