Alpha king is the flag ship beer for Three Floyd's. As a result, it needs to be a solid tasting beer and it is. It is a bit cloudy, but it has a very hoppy taste that is common in many of the Three Floyd's beers. If I was at a party and that was among a variety of other beers, I would grab it first (followed by a Zombie Dust). The only problems with the beer are the price, around $12 a six pack, and availability.
