Nice and hoppy. Nothing new, but still good. A decent alcohol content, and itís always nice to try something new from Hop Valley.

Clear golden colour with bright white head. Strong hoppy aroma. Piney and has a touch of tropical fruit. Very bitter but the creamy, slightly oily texture makes it very palatable.

tricksta_p (874) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Hoppy aroma of caramel malt and tropical fruits. Flavour is similar, with a decent bitter finish. A rather mild, unremarkable, and easily drinkable IPA.

After loving hop valley offerings ; Citrus Mistress, Alpha centauri Dipa. This one I was waiting up for. scent has a much piney, bready, Caramel malt hit. The thing wants to be success. Although It ainít. They missed this one. Thatís rare.

flip_soeperman (540) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2014
Quite a good IPA. Very good bitterness, almost nog head, lot of carbonation. Aroma is huge when opening the bottle, but quickly fades away. Very clean yeast character. Good beer, but body is on the lighter of medium side.

Salmoniform (454) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with creamy white head. Aroma is citrus peel, straw, cantaloup, pine. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium light body and soft yet zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a nice hop bitterness in the following and extending through the finish. Overall this is a decent IPA.

Lizardking3 (42) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Not too much to say about this. Tastes hoppy and slightly citrusy... not enough to balance. Has a thin body and doesnít finish with much to think about afterwards. Certainly drinkable but forgettable

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Moderate citric hoppy bitterness, light flowery notes, hints of soap notes, and a light hoppy finish. Not bad.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle: † Citrusy IPA, a little sweet, powdery, some pith and peel. † Hoppy but not biting. † Moderate to full body. † Could stand to be a bit more carbonated tho. † Smooth, clean, soft citrusy hops linger. † Average, but fairly decent.
