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.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 Short 12oz twist-off bottle. dry hopped & unfiltered (the way they should be!). Aroma of PNW citrus hops. Golden. Big overly excited white fizzy head. Not much malt character. Nice bitterness. Overly carbonated, BLAH.
RE-RATE:: Had this again on tap. Much better. Loads of hops. Nice citrus. Crisp bitterness. Much better.

A very nice IPA from founders. Grapefruit, citrus, some caramel, and hints of tropical fruit. Finishes with floral hops. I wish founders was available in my area.

12 oz bottle thanks to AllAboutStout. Hazy yellow/orange with a decent head. Lots of pine and grassy aromas. Citrus in there too. Similar flavor with more floral than citrus. Very tasty.

murky and floral with moderate pine notes and grapefruit. slightly off balance and wonderful this beer is a hop heads delight. rich with appropriate maltiness this has the volume to stick it right to the back of the throat. body and finish these folks know beer and how to do it right.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a decent off white head. Aroma is flowery, hoppy, and a bit citrusy but overall not very strong. The taste is rich and strong. The maltiness works with the hops although it is a bit too sour. Palate was thick and full with a strong hop bite.

Dark orange. Pretty good off white head. Great hoppy nose, really citusy. Smells of grapefruit and mango. Taste way again very hoppy as an IPA should be. Nice bitterness and good aftertaste. Smooth and refreshing.

jeremyd365 (124) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2008
Poured burnt orange and pretty hazy with a medium head. Very hoppy with a bit if citrus. A pretty strong hoppy taste with a bit of a bitter finish. Thick and only slightly bubbly. This is a very drinkable IPA and would definitely recommend.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, earthy-orange color; very light khaki head with solid retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Solid, resiny oranges and citrus and a touch of earthy hops in the aroma; hop-forward, chewy stuff. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy oranges and sticky candy sugar and some earthiness underneath; nice resiny hoppiness and a touch of breadiness and orange zest in the finish.
