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: Didn’t need to get close to smell this one... Rich aroma is pungent with citrus and florals hops laced with caramel. Just a hoppy and delicious smell. Pours a golden orange with a large fluffy beige head. Sticky bits of lacing. Huge hoppy flavor. Sweet citrus, piney, floral, some dandelion, and caramel. Light resin notes. Not overly dry or wet, but quite smooth and silky mouthful. Delicious IPA.

mallons72 (182) - livonia, Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2010
UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 floral - apricot aroma; nice looking amber color- wonderful tracing; bitter/hoppy on the palate - but not overbearing. Perfect balance. For me - neck and neck w/ Two Hearted for best IPA.

Cybercat (3981) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Pours a dark translucent amber with a good, fine-bubbled off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with fruity and malty undertones, quite tempting. Flavor is strongly hoppy and fairly bitter but not too strongly so. Lively, tingly, fizzy texture leaves a nice hoppy finish. Recommended to all hop lovers.
