Default Does anyone know a clone for Three Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale?

Does anyone know of a clone for Three Floyds Alpha King Pale Ale? Or, would someone out there with a sensitive palette be able to come up with one.

I am guessing that it clocks in at about 70 IBU's but the hops are not Cascade, I can figure that much out.

Edit: It looks like they use Centennial, Warrior and Cascade (guess I was wrong). http://www.threefloyds.com/dspAlphaKing.html
If I were to guess:
Warrior 90 minutes
Centennial 60 minutes
Cascade 30 minutes

Can't vouch for quality, but looks interesting.

Is this tried and true or just googled?

Sorry didn't read your whole post. Used to signatures.

Three Floyds Alpha King! I remember my first one of those quite dramatically. That was the beer that taught me what "hoppy" was. Kicked me in the teeth.

I think I had 4 that night.

Best of luck, let us know if you get close.

I really love that one, it was very citrusy to me.

This is the one I made. It is an adaptation of the one BYO has in their 150 clone brews. It won a Gold Medal at the 2007 Schooner Home Brew competition. The color and flavor are pretty close.
