Three Floyds Alpha King

I guess you can say that I am currently on a Three Floyds Brewing Company binge. Three days in a row with possibly a fourth on the horizon. Three Floyds like to take hops, especially dry hopping, to eleven. I have no issues with that and, when the chance arises, never pass one up to partake in one of their fine brews.

Alpha King is a year round American Pale Ale offering that uses generous portions of citrus hops. There is a backbone that caramel and touch of toffee malt form to hold up the crispness of the citrus hops. In spite of the big aroma and taste, the bitterness on the hind end is minimal, leaving the taste buds wanting another. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 8.8

Useless Fact: Most tropical marine fish could survive in a tank filled with human blood.
