Clear copper-amber in color with a good, frothy head that dissipates very slowly. Huge grapefuity aroma that I think has some pine notes (I have a hard time distinguishing pine notes). Medium bodied with a good carbonation. The ever-present malt backbone, which is most noticeable at the start, is pretty overshadowed by hops after mid-swallow. The finish is citrusy and grapefuity with an aftertaste that lasts for a long while. As a pale ale, I think Ive had some IPAs with less hops than Alpha King. Nonetheless, its a great brew that is very drinkable and very well balanced. This one would make for a nice session brew. Alpha King almost reminds me of a VERY mild Dreadnaught.
