Unique beer check-in #800, and it’s a beaut
I hit unique check-in #800 on Untappd last night, and I’m not sure it could’ve been a better one: a bottle of Three Floyds’ Alpha King Pale Ale, the fifth-highest-rated pale ale in the world. I found the aroma and taste profiles to be very similar to Zombie Dust, though I thought Alpha King tasted slightly more acidic/alcoholic — a little surprising considering Zombie Dust is 6.4% ABV while AK is 6.0% — whereas the balance between the malt and hops is in such perfect flavorfully delicious harmony in Zombie Dust that you barely realize the elixir you’re drinking has alcohol in it.
That all said, Alpha King was incredible in it’s own right, and another reminder that Three Floyds is simply doing it better than everyone else right now.
