COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judgings. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ale’s sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Benzai (12156) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Sampled from bottle at CBC 2013. Clear, a bit rusty orange color, small to medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma of malts, grapefruit and hops. Taste lightly malts, hops, a lovely (grape)fruityness, tropical fruits and nicely bitter. Very nice beer indeed. (Re-rate, original rating was an early amateur rating from 6/15/2011)

Strong hoppy nose and taste without the bitterness of many IPAs. This was a short 6 oz (maybe) pour at Fork in Lincoln Square....floral but not bitter.

Nice India Pale Ale. Fruit in the smell and taste. A bit bitter. Hoppy. Nice IPA colour.

good hoppy/malty aroma. typical filtered IPA pour. nice piney/citrus hops come through from start to finish. moderate bitterness. malts come through in the nose as well. great IPA, just what a hophead needs.

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Not a bad IPA. Wasn’t as hoppy as some others that I’ve had. A nice gold/orange pour with a big white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is similar with maybe pine added in. Not bad.

Amber pour, foamy white head. This IPA has a big hop aroma; spruce, citrus, grass. Flavor is fresh piney hops, with a sticky bitter finish.

Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, with some caramel malt. Very well-balanced flavor. Smooth, medium body. A true benchmark brew.

AirForceHops (5661) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2011
12 oz bottle aged over one year. I’m not a big IPA drinker but this one is nice. Hazy orange nearly brown color. Light carbonation leaves a thin layer of white head with some lacing in my shaker glass. Nose of pineapple, resin and malt. Wow..! Great flavor of malt sweetness, citrus hops that is balanced perfectly. A little bit of resin the finish and a very light bitterness, even light as it warms. Medium / light body with a lot of flavor in there. Light grapefruit shows when warm. Founders shows me again they are top notch. A very nice brew.

perfect IPA!, well, almost. This is a how an IPA should be like, big and bold, bites you in the ass and has that long hop savouring taste. Superb
