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.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
12oz bottle poured into my De Struise glass... Pours dark orange, semi clear. There is a huge tope head, good retention. The top of the cap is ugly though as its lots of big water bubbles, not a tight enough formation. Poor lacing... The aroma is great, reminds me of a fresh Daisy Cutter. Enough malt character on the front with a hint of caramel and grapefruits to balance the hop pine finish. An almost perfect marriage... The taste is good but a let down from the nose, I was expecting greatness, got above averageness. The front is not very smooth rough and stale citrus, malt character is gone. The hops are really muted, the are present but not as fresh, maybe this is old...The mouthfeel is nice, very full, coats my mouth for several minutes...Quaffable at 7.2%. Good not great, but I would gladly drink again, wouldn’t buy a sixer though.

Pretty good IPA. Not the best I’ve ever had, I would have liked more bite to it. However it was very smooth and I still enjoyed it for the most part, I’d recommend it even though it’s not a top tier IPA.

A hazy orange copper colored beer. Nice citrus aroma, medium mouthfeel. Malty beginning ends with a nice citrus hop bitterness, very dry finish. A very well balanced beer.

BrewBoxer (2559) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2011
complex, flavorful with an intoxicating floral. Bouquet. Big citrus accents with a sweet malty backbone that keeps the finish from being too bitter. Great ipa

espenra (988) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2011
35.5cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Classic orange IPA colour with a non-existant head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, but the sweet aroma of malts is also highly present. Flavour is bitter and hoppy, but the malts is present here as well. Some notes of toffee. Medium long and lingering aftertaste.

Deep orange/amber color, darker than most IPA’s. Huge fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and floral citrus hops, but offset with a lot of malty sweetness. Taste is very sweet and malty, with nice citrusy hop bite, but not too heavy. Very smooth mouthfeel. Perhaps my favorite IPA I’ve had!
