Three Floyd's Alpha King

' American Pale Ale with citrusy aroma- a hop lover’s cult beer and Three Floyds’ flagship beer Brewed with Cenntennial, Cascade & Warrior Hops.'

Now this is a killer beer! I am not going to lie, this has been a favorite of mine for awhile now I just never got around to writing about it since I was too busy 'exploring'. Don't get fooled by the APA tag- this kicks like an IPA. An extremely flavorful, full bodied, so good its decadent IPA that is. few buddies of mine have tried this at my place and they all looked at their glass and did a Keanu Reeves style 'whoa'. Sadly a price increase has made this stuff harder for me to fit into my budget otherwise this would easily become my go to hoppy beer.

Some lemon, some orange and hops that might as well be burnt before thrown in the hopper they taste so smokey. If I was a Doctor I would prescribe this beer to you. If I was a Doctor I could also afford $11.99 for a six pack (ouch!). Price be damned, you have to at least give this stuff a try. The only way it could be any better is if it had a sweet Bugbear on the cover.

Musical Pairing: Rainbow- Rising (just listen to 'Tarot Woman' and tell me otherwise)

I used to be this beer for 6.99 a sixer just a few short years ago. Even the brewery had it for 7 bucks a sixer just 8 months ago. Oh, how times have changed.
