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.

Bottle - This is just a great IPA. It has everything you want in a great IPA, so I won’t list them. Only improvements could be non-twist off bottle and a sharper finish.

12oz bottle from dmschefke, thanks Dave! Slightly hazy orangish color with a nice white head. Nice citrus hop aroma, very enjoyable. Decent mild hop flavor, not as upfront as I was expecting, but very good otherwise.

WOW! Killer IPA! Has a nice cloudy gold color. Smells of hops and citrus with a little bit of floral scents. Taste is intense with hops and a little bit of malts. A great brew. Founders is starting to show me that they might belong with the likes of dogfish head and certain others.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep, amber/golden brown with a two-finger off-white, almost tan head. Sweet, floral hop flavor with hints of grapefruit citrus. Great, hop mouthful with a hint of citrus that lingers along with some a late-comer malt flavor. A very good IPA, the best I’ve had in a while, although certainly not the best I’ve ever had.

MereLikesBeer (195) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2009
This is a pretty decent IPA. It poured a caramel gold color with a medium-light head that dissipated after a short while. In fact, 2/3 of the way in to the beer, It still has a bit of the head left. Never the less, it has very piny aroma, not too much citrus at all. It tastes on the bitter side, with a much stronger pine taste than I am accustomed to. I enjoy this beer quite a bit. I would try it again, for sure!

Very average IPA. Purchased a case on sale becuase it was a year old. Very good, very foamy. I need to try a "fresh" one, because even over a year old it was hoppy and delicious.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Semi-cloudy amber with small white head. Aroma is up front citrus and tropical with caramel and bubblegum. Flavor is once again very hop forward citrus and tropical with very dry caramel but well balanced bitterness, semi-resiny, pretty tasty. Medium body and and creamy carbonation. Absolutely fantastic, one of those go to beers for sure. If this is fresh, this is way better than most ipa’s even two hearted or alpha king.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12 oz bottle. Lightly hazed orange amber with a big white head. Fat grapefruit rind nose and flavor, some sweet caramel. Simple and solid, it brings the hops hard, and I dig it.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2009
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, some spice, light caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pine, caramel, light orange. Soft medium body, light resin, surprisingly drinkable. Alcohol noticeable but just barely.
