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.

nsquishee (615) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Sweet, floral notes emerge from this Centennial IPA. As noted in the summary for this beer, malts block out the bitterness of the hops, leaving a smooth finish. Notes of grapefruit intermingle with the hops, which keep Centennial Ale refreshing.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle thanks to beerbill. Not entirely sure quite how old this one is, but it seemed a touch faded. Pours a decently hazy amber with and off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of honey, mint, hop tea, citrus and some caramel. Taste is herbal, a good bit faded, with light citrus and caramel. Medium carbonation. Good.

SSSteve (3831) - - JAN 22, 2010
12oz bottle. orange/amber beer with no bubbles under a medium sized white head. bready, herbal spiced aroma. flavors of grass, dried leaves, biscuits, earthy malts, floral hops. nice floral, cotton candy hops with some malts that can be described as nothing but "earthy" right now. a very balanced ipa to say the least. not a complete hop bomb. very nice floral aftertaste is something to be remembered. like munching on rose petals.

Bottle->tulip: Pours a white, rocky head that exhibits some lacing atop a cloudy amber body. Good carbonation; hoppy floral aroma. Thin body, sticky mouthfeel, ending very astringently. Flavor’s duration is medium.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours a lovely clear amber with a fine, medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Very lovely hoppy aroma. Big pine, flowers, grass and heather. Some fruity apricot notes as well. Quite low carbonation, garnering a fine, dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly hoppy. Not over the top in any way. Piney again, grassy, dry, light perfume. A fair malty balance that never interferes with the hops. This is a very good IPA, but at 7,2 % it is a bit on the steep side in alcohol.
