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.

Pours a dense caramel color with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweeter than most IPA’s-citrus and caramel. Lots of grapefruit and caramel malts in the undertone making the taste sweeter with muted hop bitterness. A nice beer, but I think I prefer my IPA’s a bit more hopped.

Oh yeah, This is what an IPA ought to be. Great crisp hoppy nose, not necessaruly overwhelming citrus hops, hust crisp and clean and I definitely detect the malt. The taste is very smooth, and crisp. A deep orange amber color with a small layer of froth on top. Great body, Not lite but definitely not heavy or too rich. Nice work Founders.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2010
Orange-copper pour with a small, lasting, loose off-white head. Nice wet, fruity citrus hop aroma with some moderate caramel and honey sweetness and some dry floral pine. The flavor follows through from the aroma and is very nicely balanced. No overly aggressive catty hop profile or cloying sweetness just a nicely well rounded and balanced IPA. There is a long dry, lingering piny bitterness on the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a slightly aqueous finish.
