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.
Tons of hop flavors with a subtle alcohol presence slightly cloudy appearance

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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A clean, sugary sweet, boozy and extremely hoppy pale IPA. Very harsh. Slightly below average for the style.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase, bottle forwared to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Medium cloudy amber-orange body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is massively hoppy with lots of pine-tree, pine needles, grapefruits. Taste has a lots of sweetness upfront, grainy toasted cereals, residual sugars, old sugary honey, not much caramel. This type of crystal-like sugary (refined white sugar) malt bill just is not my thing. Alcohol is a bit apparent. The beer is saved by its massive hopping because I’m a hophead. Not a very good Overall very rough. Not sure where the Alpha Centauri Binary name comes from, I don’t know much about this science and high-tech stuff, until recently I thought the iPad was some sort of feminine hygiene product.
