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.

espenra (994) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2011
35.5cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Classic orange IPA colour with a non-existant head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, but the sweet aroma of malts is also highly present. Flavour is bitter and hoppy, but the malts is present here as well. Some notes of toffee. Medium long and lingering aftertaste.

unclemike (2895) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Deep orange/amber color, darker than most IPA’s. Huge fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and floral citrus hops, but offset with a lot of malty sweetness. Taste is very sweet and malty, with nice citrusy hop bite, but not too heavy. Very smooth mouthfeel. Perhaps my favorite IPA I’ve had!

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
One of my favorites. This is from a 12 oz bottle. As soon as you pop the top, you can smell the hops. The hops mix with the citrus/fruity aroma and give this beer a top notch aroma. It smells as good as it tastes. A very dark amber, with slight cloudiness. Very little head out of the bottle (which knocks its appearance from a 5 to 4. This is a great tasting beer. Medium bodied with a fresh, bitter, and citrus burst upon tasting. This is a very good IPA. The beer finishes well with a soft bitter taste at the finish. I will continue to buy this beer on a regular basis.

Svesse (7847) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2011
(Bottle) Dark amber colour, slightly hazy, with a large frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, peaches, orange peel, plums, toffee and floral hops. Fruity, malty taste with citrus, apricots, syrupy malt, toast, hints of burnt sugar and generous amounts of floral, citric hops in a quite bitter finish. More than medium body, quite sweet. Nice one.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2011
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear amber pour with a thick and fluffy dirty white head. Mild but citrusy hop aroma with some nice grassy notes along with some sweet fruits coming up along with the mild floral hint. Juicy citrus notes begin the flavor with a very nice and bitter hop and resin middle. Dry and grassy bitter hops stay with you through the end of the flavor and leave the lightest of sweet aftertastes.

Centennial isn’t the best hop, this one isn’t wowing but it gets the job done.

Bottle. Hazy dark golden with a big massive head. Grassy aroma with citrus, spices and malt. Bittersweet hoppy taste with more grassy hops and caramel. Good balance and a somewhat sweet finish. Another great beer from Founders
