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.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle at home, big thanks to Steve in New Jersey! l A clear amber pour with a small off white head. Great piney, citrus hop nose that promised good things. Nice mouthfeel. As anticipated the hoppage was of a high quality with a top notch malt backbone that delivered a cracking balance. Very drinkable stuff. A first rate IPA.

kbutler1 (1377) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle. Bottled on 6/17/10, reviewed on 7/21/10. Pours a nice orange color with a fluffy 2 finger slightly tan head. The aroma is rind and pine with some other citrus notes. Smooth and balanced are the words that come to mind as I drink this. Not extreme one way of the other. I very nice hop bite and bitterness followed by a silky maltiness. Lingering bitterness afterward. A classis IPA in my book. Dangerously drinkable with a 7.2% abv!

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2010
pours a burnt orange with a small off-white head. Huge aroma of centennial hops. Some caramel malt comes through but it’s big on hops. Some grassyness from dryhopping really adds to the abundance of floral, citrus hops. Medium full bodied and sweet with just slight bitterness lingering in the finish. A really nice IPA.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - JUL 16, 2010
12 oz. bottle pours a clear ruby-amber with tightly packed head that leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is strong of pine right out of the bottle, but eases into florals and popcorn as it airs. Front palate is of sweet hay with spices - nutmeg? middle is doughy with a warm maltiness and a smooth finish of citrus with a hot, hoppy aftertaste. Not too bitter and definitely easy to drink. With a nice smooth finish, this could easily be a nice session if the ABV were lower. Nicely paired with Caribbean beef and chicken kabobs on the grill.

tdtm82 (1313) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2010
A sweet smelling beer. Sweet malts, caramel, pine by the bucket load, great head, golden appearance. Good lacing and nice medium dry finish. Carbanation is moderate. Peach taste reminiscent of something I’ve had before. Mikkeller maybe. Great beer. Bottle, from Beermerchants.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Poured from a bottle. Pours a deep reddish copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malt. Flavor is caramel with some soapy hops. Bitter and dry finish. This was a bit of a disappointment.

BvilleBronc (85) - Biglerville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2010
12 oz bottle. Earthy in the nose. Taste was heavy but mellow and blended. Balanced and delicious with the bitterness placing its stake in its finish. Delicious hearty earthy IPA.
