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.

Light orange, cloudy, off-white head. Very big nose of citrus, i.e. grapefruit especially and a bit of pine and toffee. Very resinous mouthfeel straight away, dry and drier. A bit of maltiness underpinning it. This one is true to form but almost a bit too much.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
A-Slightly translucent medium amber colored body that pours with 3 finger foamy white head. Head slowly dwindles to 1/2 finger and leaves some lacing behind in the glass. Body is slightly foggy but almost transparent. S-Smell is good but pretty basic. A big dose of piny hops and an underlying presence of citrus. T-Upfront is a nice balance of piny and citrus hop flavor with a subtle dose of sweet malt in the background. The finish is all refreshing piny hop flavor. Piny hop flavor and a slight sweet maltiness linger. This brew has absolutely no hop bitterness. P- High carbonation and fairly light body. Decent-but nothing special. O- I had this awhile back on tap and really enjoyed it so I bought a bottle of it to take home and review. This is really a nice IPA that is all about hop flavor. One I will surly have again.

Bov (10285) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2010
from crackedkettle.com - cloudy reddish-orange colour with a poor head retention; robust aroma of mango, strawberries and cream; a fair carbonation and malt backbone; very tasty and fairly bitter; quite dry and long bitter fruity and hoppy finish

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
Amber color with off-white head. Expressive floral centennial hops punctuate the nose with notes of citrus and pine and sweet honey. Flavor is a complex bitter-hop profile with a malty backbone that holds it together and makes it complete. Smooth finish and medium viscosity with a hoppy bite and late alcohol. Very nice.

Gachupines (1052) - USA - APR 19, 2010
Amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is hoppy, somewhat piney. Flavor is also somewhat piney hops, not overpowering. Finish is somewhat malty, but hops are present throughout. Overall a very solid IPA good for grilling out and such.

Onslow (1247) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2010
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear amber brew iwth an off white head. Pungent aroma dominated by citrus and pine hops. Flavor is dominated by the hops, though a solid malt backbone is the canvas on which the hops flavor is painted. Decent ABV level encourages poetic metaphors. Good mouthfeel with active carbonation that (along with the hops) leaves the tongue tingling a bit. Well, this is a fine IPA.

pellegjr (395) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle, pours an clean orange honey w/ a slight off-white resilient head, excellent lacing, aroma is very pleasant strong citrusy Centennial with some caramel malt support, flavor is lightly caramel malt followed by a huge Centennial wallop with long-lingering bitterness, medium body, great hop flavor but really needs some more balancing malt

BnMBrewCrew (36) - Randolph, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2010
AROMA - has a roasty malt; Citrus, Hops; Yeast is a dough smell. APPEARANCE - Color amber; clear liquid; minimal head TASTE - Bitter, medium towards a heavy PALATE - Body is a medium, Texture is thin; Carbonation is fizzy (but not over done); Finish is bitter and astringent Overall - Not the biggest fans of IPA’s because of their bitterness. However, I just began beer tasting seriously a month ago or so. This is a great IPA for those who do not enjoy the bitterness of IPA’s.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2010
Tap sample at New Beer Dist. An extremely well rounded IPA. Eminently drinkable. Pours a deep amber with a strong citrus and floral hop aroma. Flavor is quite sweet and citrusy, with some bitterness coming in during the latter stages. Finish is smooth with subtle bite, and just a bit sticky. Great beer overall.
