I haven't been disappointed by a three floyds brew yet. Great flagship brew. I love the citrus hops that FFFs uses. The hops are similar to that of zombie dust and gumballhead, but this one has more notes of pine. This one doesn't have quite as crisp of a finish as those two. Still an awesome beer and will drink it anywhere it's available.

This brew was given to me by my bud Ben straight from Chicago. Thanks, Ben.

Bottled 1-23-14 enjoyed 2-28-14

A- Amber and hazy. A heavy pour produces a creamy off white one finger head. After a short time it forms a nice cap that leaves moderate to minimal lacing on my glass.

S- Definitely a citrusy hop aroma. An earthy feel behind the hops. Bold, smells delicious.

T- oh, yeah. Tangy , bitter and citrus hops first. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, pine. Almost immediately followed with a sweet earthy malt bill that instantly balances out the bitterness. The end features a sweet peppery aftertaste.

M- Although this brewski is medium bodied it is fairly easy to drink. A slight buttery feel in the end but overall a good feel.

O- This is my second beer form Three Floyds and Again I am extremely impressed. Zombie Dust was the first and this one isn't far behind. Alpha king in a very good example of a pale ale and one I highly recommend. Unfortunately I only have the one.
