HOPS. Oh my god hoppy. They aren't kidding about the alpha acids in this. Has a terrific aroma, very strongly hoppy all the way through.

WOW!!!!!! This is what an ale should taste like!!! Although I dont agree with the commercial description, I think this is alot more of a beer leaning to the hop and not that of of a balanced beer, but Im not complaining! This beer will treat you well....very well.

The citrus is just a little too strong on what would otherwise be an excellent beer. The overall impression and aftertaste is great, but it stings the tongue just a little. Still, the strong hops really give it good flavor.

HOPS HOPS HOPS! Man this one has some bite to it, but in a very good way. Sampled this multiple times at the great american beer festival (definitely sampled it enough to warrant a review). Very strong hop flavor and aroma, nice hop resins present. This is definitely more then just an APA... its more aggressive then most IPAs. Pours a nice orangish hue with good lacing. Man what a treat this brew was, ill never forget it. Although I have a VERY hard time getting any three floyds brews, everytime I try one im simply amazed.

Wow! My first Three Floyds beer and it was awesome. I have really started to enjoy APAs and IPAs so opted for their flagship Alpha King. From the moment you open the bottle you know youre drinking something great. The aroma has a deep citrus character that has a whiff of grapefruit and is packed with a wide variety of hops. It opens up nicely as it pours and you really get the hops it packs. Appearance was very clear and nice copperish color that had a nice thick white head to start and some moderate lacing. The taste mirrors the aroma and is packed with a wide variety of fresh citrusy hops that is balanced nicely with a floral accent and some caramel notes. It taste damn good. Very moderate bitterness and no lingering aftertaste. This is one of my favorite beers and I cant wait to try some others in their line-up. If they are nearly as good as Alpha King, Im in for a nice surprise.

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.

On tap. Hops, Hops, Hops!!! This is not a beer to start out a newbie. A deep breath reveals pine, hops, herbs, citrus. A walk through deep pine forests, one inhales and a bitter menthol type aroma but instead of cool and mellow like a pine forest... one is transported to a remote island, grapefruit is growing from the pine trees. You take a taste, sweet, sour, piney, herbal. This brew will cure what ales ya! Thick, balanced, there is a bit of an acidic bite that can get a little out of control if you continue to drink this, but otherwise the perfect beer to sip, over and over and over again! I would highly recommend.

Hadn’t had this beer in awhile, and boy did I miss it!! Had a bottle recently, compliments of Mark. Poured a beautiful orangish amber. Big hop aromas from the start, then it mellowed as it got a chance to breath. Big time citrus hops is the first thing to come to mind. It’s like you’ve been thrown into a pit of hops and grapefruit. The finish lasts, but you wish it would last longer. Never a bad beer from three floyds.
