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.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Pour is hazy orange with amazing white cappuccino head. Aroma is citrus, hops, and malt. Taste is citrus hops, caramel malt, with solid bitterness and a little of that Trix cereal flavor on the end that Centennial hops are known for. Good beer.

On tap at the Office (a.k.a. Jolly Trolley) in Westfield, NJ. Clean lines. Beer pours light brown with a nice head retention. Aroma is citrusy, taste is crisp and bitter with a nice, creamy body that supports the hop character. Nice beer! Clean IPA finish.

Poured copper in color, with a small bubbly head. Grassy nose. The taste is grassy up front and finishes citrusy bitter, but still clean. A good IPA.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2011
0.33l bottle from CrackedKettle. This one pours a cloudy golden orange body with a small sidesticking bubbly head that fills the glass as a thin film. Aroma is really fruity, lots of berries, strawberries, peach, grapefruit, pine, wood and caramel. Really nice. It has average carbonation, a tickling oily mouthfeel and it’s quite full-bodied. Flavors are really piny and bitter. Notes of caramel, grass, peaches and some grape-citrus. Everlasting pine, hoppy bitter and dry both finish and aftertaste. Really bitter without being to bitter. One helluva IPA!

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Reviewed from notes (2007). A: Copper-amber-brown with a large cream white head that leaves some lacing behind S: A large blast of pine and citrus hops.. pretty straight forward, but solid T:The hops everpresent in the aroma can be found in the first blast of flavor before the softer malts leave their mark. Not much as far as bitterness goes, but there is a nice hop finish M: Light body with lots of carbonation O: Enjoyable and easy for a hop fan to drink...

Vignale (3367) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2011
Intensiv humledoft av grankåda, gräs och citrus, framför allt grape. Första sekunderna bekräftas dofterna i en smakexplosion utan att bli för mycket. Sedan dör den ganska snabbt och är generellt mycket beskedligare är sin styggare storebror double trouble. Riktigt fin men inte toppklass som t ex Alesmith.

Pours a beautiful orange with a two-finger white-head that settles slowly and leaves all kinds of awesome lacing. Aroma is very hoppy of course, but there’s a hint of caramel sweetness underneath. Taste is lots of bitter, with some sweet. Palate is medium to full with soft carbonation and a lengthy finish. Founders has recently started printing "born on" dates on their bottles, so hopefully folks will find it easier to locate fresh ones. This is a stellar IPA and should be enjoyed accordingly.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2012 Brownish gold pour.Some head that barely stays. Suspecting this beer has been shelfed for some time. Pleasant very light floral sweet/malty aroma,smelling the roastymalt more as suspecting age on this.Good roasty malt taste with short bitterness and short bitterness but lingers along with some alcohol.A mellow mild citrus clean finish. Pretty well balanced with alot of roasty, dry,buisciuty malt character.Finishes with malt dryness/orange rind bitterness PrettyGood ipa ,probably not fresh, until i try a fresh one i consider a handfull of ipa’s that i enjoy more than this one.Pretty Good for now, fresher one? i have a hunch is very good. Unfortunatly im rating this as is. Had another 3 mo. from bottleing date the hunch was right,very good.

I was disappointed in the aroma of this brew, I really didn’t get a lot. Not much of a hoppy smell, so I thought this would be another weak IPA that people rave about, but the taste did make up for it. Good hoppy start, maybe some type of citrus, well balanced, medium body, slightly bitter almost alcohol tasting finish. Solid IPA!
