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 amber with a medium white head. Nose is typical floral hops and sweet malt but fairly weak for an IPA. Flavor is substantially more full and is mostly malt on the front and biting hops on the back (well balanced overall). Finish is long and sticky and keeps the hops rolling. Good stuff.

Ron (2951) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Amber color, subtle floral/citrus aroma, nice balance of bitter and citrus flavor. A bit of caramel sweet and some pine. This is a nice IP, it’s not too hoppy. Thanks for the trade JB..

DJMonarch (9163) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
From the Bottle at Chris O’s pre GBBF tasting, Kensal Rise 31/07/2010 Fruity hop aroma. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a bitter malt finish.

Hair6a11 (1426) - Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap: Pours a dark golden with a modest white head that dissipates quickly. Smells like floral hops as you’d expect.Tastes slightly bitter, lightly carbonated. Flavor is floral hops, light caramel malt, a little bitter on the finish. Damn fine

Wombata (485) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2010
Aroma: Floral, cut grass, citrus/grapefruit rind. Palate: Smooth Flavor: Starts with Malty orange and bitter grapefruit rind and finishes with the same plus some grassy hop flavors. Comments: Good balance of med-full bodied malt and bitter hops in the flavors. The initially smooth mouth feel holds through the mid-palate and then it finishes dry. Nearly an Imperial IPA but more restrained and the better for it. 38-39 score range. Perhaps the flavor is an 8.

This beer is delicious. It has a great initial taste and the aftertaste is also very good. I have tried other beers from this brewery and they seem to have really high quality!

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2010
355ml bottle. Pours a deep amber with a mild haze and effervescence. A big & bubbly beige head sits atop that takes a while to reduce and never fully dissipates, the remnants leaving a scattered lacing. Lots of those juicy centennials - grapefruit, pine and tangerine all over. The grapefruit and pine come through well on the palate with a peachy/strawberry sweetness. A nice malty nuttiness underpins all the hops. Moderately crisp, medium body & carbonation and a balanced, playful, rounded finish - not too much of any one quality

Countbeer (5260) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle: Light beige slow disappearing head. Smell lots of citrus, light hints of hops, spices, malts and fruits. Color is clear orange amber. Taste is very light but still full of taste. Hoppy citrus, long fruity taste changes slightly into more bitter and still pretty fruity aftertaste, Very well balanced and bit dry towards the end.

StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Has an aroma of fresh biscuit with sweet cotton candy hops. Appearance is average but the head dissipates very fast. Think mouthfeel with lots of hops in the mouth. Taste is ok but nothing special. Nice hop bitterness but the taste is too sweet for my taste.
