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.

thelizard (46) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle from Winking Lizard. Best smelling IPA I’ve come across. Reminds me of a 90-minute, as it is a good blend between malt and hops. Nice, dark, non-pisslike appearance.

jtclockwork (10444) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s RBSG 2010. Pours clear brown. Nose is floral and citrus. Taste is nice citrus and very well-balanced hops. Dry finish.

Vir4030 (560) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Pours up a medium brown with a very foamy head. Very bitter, with only a mild scent. It leaves a very dry taste in your mouth.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Strong strawy tropical fruit aroma with grassy alcohol notes. Dry-sweetish tropical fruit, alcohol, and paper taste with grassy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, astringent mouthfeel. Dry-bitter papery toffee aftertaste with lingering tropical fruit and wax notes. Nice, but perhaps a bit old? (0.355l bottle, Systembolaget, Stockholm.)

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Nice hop balance and enjoyable palate. No bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking.

djredpop (101) - Downriver, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Pine / citrus aroma, grapefruit. Light copper-colored, very slight haze. Small dense off-white head w/ decent retention. Lots of carbonation. Some oily lacing. Tastes like it smells: Flowers, citrus fruit, pine. Velvety mouthfeel, medium body. Fruity / dry finish. Founders does it again!

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Pours orange/yellow with little to no head. Decent lacing with a crazy amount of carbonation. Aroma is of oranges, pine, flowers, citrus... all in all pretty normal for an IPA. Taste is strong on the citrus and leads into a dominant hoppy finish. Very good representation of an IPA.

1010 (309) - Midlothian, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours a golden orange. Nice taste with a good mix of floral and hops. What an IPA should taste like. 12 oz. bottle

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
Pretty much everything an IPA should be and nothing that it should not be. Unremarkably good and unremarkably bad. As anybody who has partaken of mediocre beer masquerading under the "craft brewed" headline knows, though, there’s really something to be said for that.

pilsnerrogge (2607) - Finspång, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2010
Bottled:
Pours hazy amber/orange with a dense head. Nose is orange peels and hops. Flavour is all about piney, resiny hops. Long, somewhat sharp bitterness.
