Bomber into a snifter. Aggressive pour. Nice hazy gold/orange. Big, pillowy off-white head of foam. Smells awesome; sweet fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, strawberries, candied sugar, and peppermint. Honestly one of the best smelling beers I've had. Medium weight and rich, creamy mouthfeel. Tastes a bit similar to a couple of their other PA's, but still good. I get pine, citrus, and notes of grapefruit, orange, and berries. Dry finish with a bit of a dank, tart aftertaste.

This is a good beer, but I feel like it's strangely similar to Yum Yum. Maybe it's the a certain type of hops the two share, or something. But I enjoyed Yum Yum, and I enjoyed this. This one had a bit of the same funky taste, which I didn't care for. Not sure what specific ingredient or brewing technique attributes to this, but if anyone knows what type of hops SSMF, Yum Yum, and Alpha King are made with, I'd be curious to know. While this is good, I'm not sure I could tell the difference between this and another 3F PA in a blind taste test.
