dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Aroma of western hops, with grass and grapefruit dominating. Appears as a hazy copper beer, wigth a small yellow head that dissipates quickly. Flavor is hop-dominant, with a bitter grapefruit punch overlaying a sweet caramel backbone. Palate is moderately light, with a certain astringency, and with appropriate effervescence. Overall, a very nice APA that is a bit more than the sum of its parts.

PotjeBier (2881) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle, shared at a tasting in Tokyo. A bit too old I think (bottled August 2016?). Hazy amber color. Sticky off white to beige head. Aromas: sweetish, sweet fruit, brown sugar. Retronasal its caramel, sweet fruit, resin. Flavor is moderate bitter with some hoppy sourness and light sweetness. Light bodied. Finish is rather bitter. Need to retry with a fresh bottle sometime.

vikingguy (1080) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Cloudy copper color. Aromatic spicy citrus aroma. Taste - caramel malt sweetness and a hoppy bitterness that balances it out with perfection. A mix of citrus, earthiness and a something herbal. Sweeter than your typical APA but very well balanced. Easy drinking and flavorful. Wonderful! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden orange with a billowy 2-3 finger head. Aroma is a mix of pine and earthy grass with floral notes. Taste is more earthy grass/floral with a touch of pine and the slightest hint of citrus. A solid malty background is in symbiosis with the hops and makes the taste exceptionally balanced. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, it is easy to see why this is 3Fs flagship ale, and a trendsetter in the pale ale community. While not the absolute best anymore, you can never go wrong with a swig of Alpha King.

Metalchopz (3199) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2016
Thanks to my GF for bringing these back from her Indianapolis trip. Pours a cloudy caramel-amber colour with a beige frothy head, excellent stay and some good lacing. Loads of fruity aromas with grapefruits, raisins, oranges and plums. Caramel malts blending things. The taste has the same with some good bitterness in the finish. Dry mouthfeel in the end. Great unfiltered brew, but feels more like an micro IPA than an APA.

willisread (2938) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear amber with a finger of foam that lingers. Big punchy grapefruit and pine nose with some orange zest. Clean and well-balanced on the palate. More pine and caramel on the palate with zing of grapefruit zest on the finish. Bitterness is big, but not overly done. Solid old school IPA.

On tap. Pours a brown dark amber with moderate head. Aromas of piney forest floor with a bit of candi sugar and wet toasted malts. Flavors of dull grapefruit, pine, bitter citrus, and toasty malts. Nicely constructed. Very good
