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.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with hints of alcohol. Flavor of floral and citrus hops with a nice malty backbone. Has a thin watery finish with a decent amount of bitterness that lasts a while. I could drink this all day.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 One of the better IPAs I have had, nice full flavor, perfect amount of hops and malt, like the bitterness as well, a bit dry but only adds to the flavor, citrus and floral hops abound. Well done, one of my favorite IPAs

I have walked many miles to pound Godís finest ambrosia: Blatz! I daresay I would walk across my worst enemies testicles, to have a sip of this stuff. But I would walk through fire---and God forbid---listen to Lady Gaga to get back to Blatz. If you have this junk: FINE. Just donít put it in the fridge next to your Blatz, for fear that the unpalatable elixir will put itís "funk of spunk" into your Blatz. Believe it!

wedgie9 (2639) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2011
Tasted on 4/12/11 on draft at Binnyís South Loop. Pours clear light amber with an average white head that recedes to thin and even lace. The nose is hoppy, dank, cardamom herbal, and resinous with some brown sugar and a pleasant caramel malt backbone. The flavor is lightly sweet brown sugar up front, moving to resin and herbal hops bitterness, and a solid caramel malt backbone. The body is medium with average stinging carbonation and a long bitter resin finish.

It poured an amber color with a nice off white head. The aroma was hoppy and somewhat piney. The flavor was also somewhat piney hops but not overpowering. It was a very solid IPA.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a nice white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, all typical of a good centennial IPA. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Taste is malty sweet up front with a clean, bitter, hop finish. An excellent IPA.

Well I love everything Founders. It was kinda of light in the flavor and had a quick finish. Good for a starter beer.

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, wouldnít buy a sixer though.
