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.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Sticky-bittersweet and with a great hop finish thatís piney and perfect! Love it!!! Semi-cloudy classic IPA color with a frothy, bubbly off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops... Wait, I need to slow down. Again, FRESH HOPS. Awesome. Wow, Iím so impressed. Not very bitter, very fresh and pleasant. Light bodied, light finish with that same fresh dry hop flavor.

Bottled. Amber beer with white head--thin. Aroma is pleasant sweet hop--a little grassy. Flavor is caramel and hops of citrus...very dry end.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was a hazy orange with two inches of thick, fluffy off-white head. Nose was very neutral on this; I picked up malt, light hops, and very light pine. Taste was very much the same. It was so neutral, yet the notes of the style were there, but not outlandish in any regard. This is a very delicious IPA, and I feel this is a great starter brew to introduce the style to people who donít care for the IPA.

Draft at misconduct. Pours gold with white frothy head, awesome lacing. Grapefruit and peach aroma, touch of grass. Very little sweetness and then a drying bitter finish on the tongue. Incredibly hoppy solid IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James and Sean. Pours honey orange with a thick white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, pine and hay. Medium bodied with a tangy, almost sticky mouthfeel.Great IPA. Re- Rate: Initial 3.9 Bottle. 12 oz. Pours a glowing orange-red with a thick, fluffy, pillowy tan head atop. Aroma of fresh flowers, honey, grass, juicy hop resins, and hints of grapefruit and malty caramel. Full, boid, wet, malty, yet aggressively hoppy mouthfeel; body is directly down the middle of hop and malt. The balance carries through until the finish, which yeilds to the hoppy bitterness. Excellent IPA.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Glowing brown body with sticky head. Toasty caramel head. Nice taste of toffee, caramel. Quite spicy too with hops in the finish and citrus notes. A lovely IPA. Another great beer from Founders.

Poured from bottle, aroma is of a hop garden, very potent yet soothing. This has a pronounced citrus taste while maintaining its hop balance, almost like a very hoppy Bellís Oberon Ale. Appears like a traditional IPA, however this is one IPA that sets the foundation for what I like in a hoppy ale.

Cerveza de cuerpo medio, sin filtrar (ojo al servirla...ya que su apariencia depende del cuidado que tengamos al servirla), citrica y fragante, malta caramelo presente,dulzona con un final dulzon y amargor amigable. El sabor y aroma del lupulo son muy agradables. Buena espuma, deja un buen lazo en el vaso, sabrosa. Me imagino que el amargor que no moleste se debe al uso de centennial, ya que viene siendo un "super" cascade. Me hubiese encantado un poquito mas de amargor residual.
