This is my favorite beer. It pours with a creamy head. I appreciate the aroma of this particular variety. It's not cheaply made. The ingredients are of quality and they don't skimp. I've not tasted an other American pale ale that compares. As of today 6.21.13 this is my favorite beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orange to brick red with slightly cloudy body. A thick, three finger off-white head with excellent retention and nice lacing. Strong orange notes dominate the nose with a hint of pine needle and faint caramel as well. Orange hits the palate first delivering a strong citrusy taste that’s faintly tart. The next notes are sweeter - sherbet and caramel. Alpha King finishes dry and slightly bitter, with faint resin notes. Medium bodied, not quite as chewy as an IPA, but pretty close. The carbonation is lively. Overall this might be the finest example of an American Pale Ale out there. Great work 3Floyds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big sticky sweet hop smell. Beautiful redish copper color. Nice full flavor citrus bitter with soft malt undertone.that keeps the flavor in a delicate balance. Stains the mouth with a grainy hop taste that fades slowly.

Perfect!!! A great beer!!! Citrus hops with a little but of pine and sweetness to it. Smooth and delicious. The hops aren’t over powering and the hops blend really with the malt

Pour from a bottle is a nice hazy amber with a white head. Has a very sweet citrus aroma. Taste is a little nutty with hints of grapefruit. Goes down smooth with a clean after taste.

An unusually smooth IPA that meets every expectation. This beer fully deserves the perfect rating.

APA not this is an IPA...if I were to rate this on style...booo. But it is such a phenomena grass white pepper aroma kills it. Flavor is crisp and dry with a hop presence that lingers throughout. My fav
