Another gem from the Three Floyds Brewing Company. Pours an amber copperish color with a creamy white tannish head. Smells of pines,hops and various citruses. Taste is very citrusy yet not quite an IPA. Probably my favorite every day beer. An excellent choice.

Delightful first sip that screams unusual quality! Sly and seductive hops had me smitten by glass end.

12oz - A bright hoppy aroma for a pale ale, thats for sure. There is also some malt and a touch of citrus. Pours a clear amber with no carbonation, head, or lacing. Flavor is a delicious blend of hops and malts. Carmel and citrus thats getting there butt kicked by Mr. Hop. Smooth and blanced, this is a great drinking beer.

jcr (2680) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Bottle. When this is fresh, it is full of citrus hops and bitterness with a delicate malt back bone. Less than fresh, the malts begin to dominate and its not near as satisfying. Unfortunately, 3F doesnt date its bottles. This rating is for a fresh bottle. Medium amber body with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, pine and resin. Some toasted grain in the background. The flavor is moderately to heavily bitter, lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic. The finish is bitter and dry and long lasting. There is just enough of a hint of sweet malts throughout to balance the big hop flavor. Medium body with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Outstanding and a favorite.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 12 oz bottle-pours a nice creamy tan head. Clear gold-amber color. Aroma-lots of citrus&hops. Flavor is lots of citrus-bitter grapefruit (from the hops). Taste finishes with the bitter grapefruit lightly, and without a bite. A very good, occasional beer.

Undoubtedly the best IPA Ive ever enjoyed. Very Citrus/fruity but not overpowering. Extremely hoppy; savory aftertaste; very flavorful but drinkable.

On tap at Cap Ale House. Great amber color, very smooth. Taste very much like an IPA, great hoppiness and nice toasted malt flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Freebee 12oz from Ohiodad. The best pale ale Ive ever had, mostly because it tasts like a good IPA. Very smooth, bitter pale ale.

Dark orange-amber color. White-cream head which didnt last. Good lace though. This is the third Three Floyds brew Ive had. The first was Dark Lord (thanks Chuck), the second was Dreadnaught (thanks Grapes and Grain, Mequon, WI). Both were excellent so I didnt hesitate to pick up a 6 pack of alpha king for 6.99 (again at Grapes and Grain). Ive drank three before rating it. Not counting free beers Ive been given to rate (from Chuck, Blake and Matt) this is the best beer for the price Ive ever bought. I love me the bitter bitch goddes pale ale. Citrus hops. This pale ale gives makes most IPAs or imperial IPAs its bitch. Ive been drinking all night so Im starting to get creative (who was that writer that would drink for inspiration?). Anyhow, I think Im rambling so Im out. Check the ratings.
