look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a pint glass, the Alpha King pours a hazy amber/orange color, with around a half inch or so off-white head. The main aroma I get from this is citrusy hops (grapefruit), with a little spicyness too. It tastes hoppy with citrus being the main flavor, and with a bit of caramel sweetness in there too. There's a bitter finish/aftertaste, but it wasn't as strong as I expected (not that I'm complaining). The mouthfeel is kinda slick, with medium body. It's a pretty drinkable beer. Overall it's pretty good, you can't go wrong with this!
