Hop Valley Alpha Centauri Binary IPA

Without transactions I wouldn’t be able to try some of the wonderful American craft beers throughout the United States. Wit that in mind the beers for the next 7 – 10 days will be from that method.

Alpha Centauri Binary IPA by Hop Valley Brewing Company steps in as the first American craft beer to start off the celebration. 😉 An Amerian Imperial IPA, Alpha Centauri has a bunch of west coast hops that burst through in the aroma and taste. Citrus is the main course but tropical and grass aromas are prevalent too. Bread malt aromas give a slight homage to English IPAs before the hops once again squash any type of connection.

Originally brewed to commemorate Hop Valley’s 100th batch, Alpha Centauri is now a seasonal that I could see locals clamoring over each release. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 10 (15%), Drinkability: 8 (35%), Overall: 8.6

Useless Fact: If one started counting the moment he or she was born and continued counting without stopping until he or she reached the age of sixty-five, that person still would not have counted to a billion.
