This is my favorite beer. Three Floyds is my favorite beer maker. I love the hop flavor and aroma of this beer. I discovered Three Floyds about 10 years ago and really like most of what they brew. Alpha King is my all time best. It is awsome.

Appearance: amber cloudy
Smell: Citrus hops
Taste: Great hop flavor, but not over powering
Mouthfeel: Clean full flavor
Overall: Beautiful hop flavor aroma and taste
