*Uploading my old reviews, this one has a review date of: 9-3-07. If I can acquire the beer again I will re-review it*

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for the sixer; I’ve had these for a while but haven’t gotten around to review one, and this is my last one and it’s a hot one today.

Alpha King pours an amber color with a good inch of head. A few tiny bubble rise from the bottom of the glass and continues to keep a good layer of foam. The aroma is of pine and citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon and biscuit malt—really pushing it to an ipa standard. The taste is pleasantly bitter and refreshing, one of my favorites to drink on a hot day. Caramel and a touch of alcohol are present as the beer warms up a bit. This is one of the best pale ales out there, but not sure if I could drink a six pack of this without the hops and alcohol affecting my taste buds.
