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.

pours a burnt orange with a small off-white head. Huge aroma of centennial hops. Some caramel malt comes through but itís big on hops. Some grassyness from dryhopping really adds to the abundance of floral, citrus hops. Medium full bodied and sweet with just slight bitterness lingering in the finish. A really nice IPA.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear ruby-amber with tightly packed head that leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is strong of pine right out of the bottle, but eases into florals and popcorn as it airs. Front palate is of sweet hay with spices - nutmeg? middle is doughy with a warm maltiness and a smooth finish of citrus with a hot, hoppy aftertaste. Not too bitter and definitely easy to drink. With a nice smooth finish, this could easily be a nice session if the ABV were lower. Nicely paired with Caribbean beef and chicken kabobs on the grill.

tdtm82 (1200) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2010
A sweet smelling beer. Sweet malts, caramel, pine by the bucket load, great head, golden appearance. Good lacing and nice medium dry finish. Carbanation is moderate. Peach taste reminiscent of something Iíve had before. Mikkeller maybe. Great beer. Bottle, from Beermerchants.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a deep reddish copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malt. Flavor is caramel with some soapy hops. Bitter and dry finish. This was a bit of a disappointment.

12 oz bottle. Earthy in the nose. Taste was heavy but mellow and blended. Balanced and delicious with the bitterness placing its stake in its finish. Delicious hearty earthy IPA.

Growler from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes, VA. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is a very clean, lots of citrus hops. Flavor has a bit of malt, a lot of hop bitterness, spicy citrus and some grass. Finish has lots of hop bitterness.

this is a great IPA. I think I need to drink this side by side with Bells Two Hearted. This isnít overly hopped like is the trend. It has an excellent balance with some great caramel sweetness. Love it.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Clear copper pour with a sizable white frothy head that lasts and sticks nicely. The aroma is pervasive upon opening, exuding notes of citrus, floral hoppy perfume, and pine resin. Further sniffs yield tropical fruits such as mango and pineapple, as well as some caramel and biscuit malt to round out the malt character. The flavor starts with a nice resinous stickyness that is balanced well by some caramel and toffee notes. Orange and grapefruit citrus character combines with some floral and spicy herbal notes to create a nice arrangement. The palate is creamy and soft due to fine bubbled carbonation, and finishes sticky and resinous. A great example of the style.

Sweet hop aroma. Clear orange color with a large white head. Malty bitter beginning getting sweeter in the finish and fading in the end.
