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.

Pours somewhat cloudy with very small frothy head. Almost sweet hoppy taste. This beer is very lively leaving your tounge tingling from the dry roaste hops. Very suprised with the strength of the inital taste that mellows into a smooth sweet hoppy flavor. Good IPA

Wolfenkopf (180) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2010
This one’s aroma is brilliantly packed with hops and citrus. Once you stick your nose in the glass you have to taste it. Head is amber and frothy, almost like a good milkshake. Hold it up to the light and you can see the finely ground ingredients floating beautifully. Then there’s the taste, which is even more brilliant than the aroma. Full bodied and intensley hoppy, this one errs on the side of pleasant bitterness rather than folding to the sweetness of citrus. It hits the palate with that hoppy attitude and does not let go for awhile. That being said, it is not an unpleasant bitterness, but a deeply satisfying one. Those that love their IPA’s nasty and unapologetic will love it.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange, light brown with a little white head. Nose is floral, fruity, piny. Medium body, soft in the mouth but a nice amount of carbonation gives it some aggressiveness. Full taste, floral, piny, grapefruit, citrus. Finish bitter and a little spicy. Nice balance, but definitely towards the hop side. Solid IPA.

Botle pours light amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma of flowery hops and citrus. Predominant flavors of pine, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and pineapples with a long-lasting bitter finish. An excellent IPA.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Amber pour with a beige head. Tangerine, grapefruit and pine aromas. Nice hoppy nose. Smooth citrus burst in the flavour with a hint of caramel. Good, bitter edge. Fruity, sharp hoppy finish.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Thanks to RBlaszak and djrn for each sending bottles of this beer. I appreciate it guys. The beer pour a hazy orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is oranges, papayas and pine. Very hoppy smelling. The flavor is a mix of orange and grassy hops with some bready and toffee malt. Low to medium bitterness. All things considered, this is a fairly balanced IPA that has a lot of flavor from the hops and malt. Very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
