Didn't have time to do a full-on analysis, but I'll sum it up quickly -

Both a great looking and great tasting pale ale with tons of flavor that goes down clean and smooth. Bold hop character with background malt that balances it out. This is FFF's flagship brew for a reason.

Great stuff!

Had on cask yesterday at the FFF brewpub. 10 oz pour into a nonic pint, amber colored with a beautiful whitish head that laced the whole way down. Smooth mouthfeel, almost undercarbed. Hops are almost understated yet balanced making Alpha King an easy drinker compared to Zombie Dust. One of my favorite regular bottlings from FFF, a treat to have on cask!
