Thanks NW2285. 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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler at B's Po Boy, Fountain Square, Indianapolis, IN
A- Caramel chestnut with a slight haze in the body. Yellowish/light tan head, with some great rings of lacing.
S- Dry citrus rind. Slight caramel maltiness.
T- Snappy citrus, dry hop. A little sweetness, caramel to backup the hop character.
M- Medium body. Carbonation is smooth. Dry finish, bitterness is moderate and pleasant.
O- A great ale. I've been lucky enough to be able to drink this beer a lot, and I have finally reviewed it.
