3/19/2010: Still haven’t had a beer from three floyds that I didn’t like. Therefore I was pretty pumped when I got this bottle in that super bowl poll that I recently won. I actually had two sent to me! Oh and don’t mind the pint glass… it had a label on the back so thats why the top looks dark.

Alpha King smells pretty hoppy, mostly citrus. The flavor is really really good, citrus hops are the dominant flavor, with some caramel malt right behind it. A good bit hoppier than your average pale ale. Orange/tangerine flavor it what to me makes Alpha King different for the style. Mouthfeel is actually a bit lighter than my brain is telling me it should be. I really need to make a trip out to this brewery ASAP. I wish I could go for Dark Lord day buttttt The Big Tap In is that day!

Picture of the day: Anyone need a ride?
