A nice deep golden w/ a slight red tinge to the color. Strong floral hops aroma which actually has a lighter taste than you would expect. Somewhat bitter in the aftertaste that doesnt disappear quickly.

Rich orange red color with a frothy off-white head. Sweet smell of earthy hops; citrusy. Flowery, citrus flavor with a finish I cant quite put my finger on, but I know its dry and the hops linger for a while. Only detraction comes from the somewhat thinner body. At $6.99 two blocks away, this will definitely become a regular.

much thanks to growler for this bonus beer.the king pours a lovely translucent orange with a creamy white head that leaves wonderful webbing.this pale ale honestly smells alot like an i.p.a.citrus and pine dominate the smell.the taste had the citrus and pine in it as well.along with some ice tea,caramel malts,cream soda,and flowers.the mouthfeel was a little on the light side but not in a bad way.overall this is very drinkable,but its damn close to an i.p.a.

Wonderfully hoppy for an APA. Id say at 66 IBUs, more than DFHs 60 Minute, Three Floyds might look into reclassifying this fellow. Great hops, though. Cascade stands out most substantially, giving it that grapefruity citrus-ness.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Hey, what can I say, its good stuff. Copper color. Small white head. Smells good. I could drink a lot of it. Lots of better beers out there, but this is a great pale ale.

Bottle. Pour is a deep copper with thin light-tan head. Aroma is strongly of caramel with a touch of hops. Taste is nicely balanced. Sweet malty start and a touch of bitter hops at the finish. A good bit of caramel in the taste along with some warming alcohol. Solid beer though nothing exceptional. Based on other reviews maybe mine has aged??

It does bear quite a resemblance to an orange in aroma and taste, of course there is less sweetness and a sharp bitter finish. This beer pours a lovely amber color with a thick head. An extremely enjoyable Pale Ale without the malt heaviness of some.

Smells like a sweet ffesh orange. A little cloudy. Initial taste is sweet with a very citrus finish, like chewing on an orange peel.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Pours amber, with a white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma. Lots of hops in the flavor, more citrus, especially grapefruit, with some malt sweetness. Finish is dry, long and bitter. Im not much of a hop head, but this was good.

Pours light brown with a small white head. Aroma is hops and malt blended nicely. Taste is similar to sierra nevada but better hoped. Alpha King has some earthy tones to it. Great stuff.
