This is probably the best beer that will ever cross your wastoid, human lips. Perfect citrus ale, single origin hops, premium pour balanced impeccably with the most perfect zest. Tastes like summer, like the best day of summer.

Easily the best beer I have ever had. I had 3 on tap at Kumaís Corner in Chicago. Just an all around perfect beer. I have nothing bad to say. It is the most versatile of beers. It is enough bitterness to satisfy the hopheads and enough citrus/grapefruit finish to please the casual beer drinker. My girl hates hops and she loved this one. The bottle and label are top notch too. Only down side is that its damn near impossible to find at the store.

Iíve had this beer on tap at 3 Floyds and in bottle. It doesnít disappoint in either format. Pours off golden color with off white head. Aroma is fantastic. Dank resinous hops dominate the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is intensely bitter, with some citrus and some dank taste. Just awesome.

Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. Very nice IPA but I don't quite get the hype. Bottled, I find Alpha King more flavorful. Would still recommend this bottled over on tap because the carbonation in the bottle adds a lot to the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally found this lovely beer at Fichermans, a lovely bottle shop in Chicago. It poured a nice hazy orange color with a small head that disapated rather quickly. Great citrus aroma and taste. Gotta love how FFF uses their hops! It was well worth the struggle to find it locally

17/VI/13 - 12 Fl. Oz. @ home - BB: n/a, but it was max 2 months old (2013-xxx)Thanks to BelvidereIPA for the trade!

Clear deep orange beer (well, maybe a bit of a chill haze in it), big creamy irregular yellowish head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of citrus, ripe sweet exotic fruits, pineapple. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity start, lots of peaches, citrus, mango, passion fruits, some honey, slightly sweet, piny bitterness, yet very soft. Aftertaste: lots of ripe fruits, peaches, exotic fruits, soft gentle bitterness. Wow. Freshness is indeed everything...

Clear yellow to golden beer, big creamy dense yellow head, very stable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, grapefruit, lychee, some pineapple, passion fruit, bit soapy, little piny. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty fruity start, lychee, some pineapple, grapefruit, bit soapy. Aftertaste: grapefruit, pretty bitter, bit piny, little soapy, sweet touch. Itís definitely past itís best, but hard to tell how old it is, as there is, surprise surprise, no date on the bottle.

This beer is just ok to me. I donít care for the citrus/grapefruit taste it carries. When itís chilled, I can tolerate it. Overall, not my fave, but if I have nothing else in the house, Iíll drink it.

Morey (46) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Appearance: Pours a nice hazy orange color with about 1 finger of off-white colored head. Thereís some decent retention and lacing, but nothing crazy.

Aroma: Orange zest, Grapefruit, Pine, Peach Skin, Apricots, White Grapes, and a hint of toasted malt.

Taste: Nice BIG citrus bitterness up front, with a good dose of resinous pine sap following close behind. Thereís actually a decent malt-backbone towards the middle to back end. The finish is just loaded with lingering citrus, pine, and overall bitterness. Fantastic.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with just below moderate carbonation. Works perfectly with this beer.

Moreyís Bottom Line: This was sent to me in a trade. He said that he picked it up 15 minutes after it was bottled! Itís about a week old now, so this is obviously a fresh sample. It ranks up there with Pliny & Heady IMO. The lingering bitterness is a very welcome attribute. Hope to have this one again. Cheers!

Huge on the tropical fruit. Some bitterness. A real nice sweetness in the back of the mouth and the finish. Zingy gooseberry brightness. Fresh and pretty delicious.

By far, my favorite beer that I have ever tasetd. Im big on bitter, but this bitter isnt so overpowering that it wrecks your evening with a bad aftertaste, great aroma, slightly hoppy with a hint of peaches, , oragnish tangelo?, pours with a nice amber color with a white head that lasts. THe taste is as good as a beer-gasm that your mouth will ever experience. The taste is as close to the elixir of the Gods as you are going to get, by my opinion anyways.
