3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Golden-amber with white head. Aroma is pine sap, resin. Body is medium. Flavor is peppery sappy. Meh. Enjoyable, but not amazing. Had it next to Breakside’s India Golden Ale, which was much more to my liking.

I’m usually not a huge IPA guy, but this one is VERY tasty! It has a great piney, citrusy aroma and a floral, citrus, hoppy flavor. Not overly bitter or bitey.

$3.99 a 22oz? Only in Oregon can you find a dank, well made double ipa for that price. Lots of pine and deep fruit for aroma. Alpha Centauri has a gorgeous medium malty body with a huge hop finish. Fantastic!

From bottle. Dark golden orange color. Great citrus and grapefruit hop aroma. Well hopped, but very balanced with a sweet citrus caramel and tart grapefruit flavor. Finishes with an intense hop kick and slight warming.

This DIPA is one of the best beers I have had in years. The well balanced yet over the top ibus make me want to drink this beer over and over again.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong hazy golden and peach coloured body with a thin, fast-dying white head. Aroma of tons of bright hops, citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin and bunches more hops - plus some malt and alcohol along with a bunch of sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hop notes with grapefruit, honey and pine with a lot of alcohol and malt as well - nice and fruity. Aftertaste shows a lot of bitterness, naturally, with a lot of alcohol, pine, grapefruit and some good apricot and pear flavours. Overall, a very nice imperial ipa with tons of hop notes and even more malt and alcohol - all with great complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased a few minutes ago at Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon for US$5.50 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland on 12-April-2013.
