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 headís floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This aleís sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Chalsk (1078) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Pours an amber orange haze, somewhat lively. Medium head breaks down to a thin head, with lacing. Has a citrus-hoppy aroma, with some subtle pine. Bitter and biting taste. A bolder IPA, not the creamier variety. Sweet on the front and bitter on the back, hits close together, decent balance. Bitter aftertaste. A good IPA, but not a special one.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Poured from a tap at Founders. Clear, copper colored with nice lacing. Orange-citrus hops aroma with a very mild note of malt. Lively carbonation refreshing, with a lasting dry-hop bitterness. Overall itís a good IPA. I enjoy the orange-citrus aromas, but I wish it was a little more balanced.

12 oz bottle. great looking deep copper color. Smooth floral taste upfront with orange zest and caramel finish. A flavorful IPA with the ABV well hidden.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Pours gold with a bit of lacing on the glass. Nose is orange and floral hops, some caramel and toffee malt backbone. Flavor slightly fruity, orange hops, light caramel and toffee malt backbone whose sweetness is cut with nice piney bitter finish. Very solid, very drinkable, though I think the over 7% abv could catch up fast.

Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma is citrusy hops. Taste up front is citrusy hops with orange, and lemon flavors, ending in a bit of caramel sweetness with a good amount of bitterness. Nice IPA!

NOT IMPRESSED!! All the hype and talk about this beer and I was disappointed.Not that itís a horrible beer but not worthy of the ratings Iíve seen.Iím a HUGE IPA fan and this beer lacked all I love in an IPA.Not very hoppy and almost had a strange soapy bitterness at the end.The Double Trouble by Founders was solid but this beer...not for me.You could have told me this was Budís new IPA or MILLERíS and Iíd have believed you.Sorry Founders this one is a miss for me.

Founders is a pretty solid brewer. This is a nice IPA, though I might like the RYE P.A. better. Nice hop flavor with citrus aftertaste.
