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 18, 2010 Bottled ay Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy amber, brief head. Peachy soapy hop aroma,. Sweet and compact with clean mouthfeel. The peachy, soapy hops together with overt sweetness and clean, somewhat syrupy malt forms an immense bitterness that gets slight inky edges. While it contains loads of pleasnt flavours it’s too sweet and unbalanced to live up to my high expectations on this brewer.

12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a slightly hazy gold with about a finger of fine bubbled white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma with some bready malt. The hops jump right out at you, but they are backed up with a solid malt base. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Long drying finish from the hops. Pretty drinkable for such a hoppy beer. I can see this one becoming a regular in my rotation.

Draft at Tylers. Orange hue with small white head. Nose is big citrus and floral hops mostly. Flavor is balanced with sweet malts and slightly bitter hops, finishes with a tinge of fruity sweetness. A solid IPA with good hop/malt balance and easily drinkable!

A darker brown/amber than the typical ipa. Lots of citrus and perfume on the nose. A fuller mouth feel than many examples. The malts give a sweetness that keeps the hops in check. Not a monster, a sturdy, smart example. very nice

12oz., bottled on 7/27/09. Pours a mostly clear orange golden with a good sized off-white head that lasts. Aroma is floral, citrus, light pine and some grass. Flavor is a nice bitter hops bite, with grapefruit, citrus, floral and slight pine. A tasty and easy drinking IPA.

97? Wow, that’s higher than I would’ve guessed. Not that this is a bad ipa but I’ve certainly had better. Just bitter. Didn’t find much flower or fruity flavors.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2009
Bottled at Monks Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear amnber colour with creamy lasting white foam. Rich, sparkling resinous aroma of peaches, lychee, apricots, flowers and elder. Medium-bodied with fresh hoppy notes of grapefruit, resin, peaches, herbal grass and mild lemon. Rounded and rather chewy body. Long bitter finish of wet grass, grapefruit and resin. Damn tasty IPA with a wonderful mouthfeel.

I’m thinking I need to try this one again. All I took down from my last tasting was numbers and "nothing special."

Thanks coyotehunter! Bottled 5/26/09. Abundantly simple aroma of piney and dry grass. Little caramel. Orange/copper, small gummy white head and full lacing. Powerful, assertive, sustained earthy hops come early and often. There’s an orange peel dryness and complexity to the malt base, though the hops definitely demand attention here.
