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 headís floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This aleís sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

(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.

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

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a solid amber with small white head. Aroma is predominantly grapefruit. Exceptional sweet taste of grapefruit and white grapes. A very hoppy and tangy beer but well balanced IPA with just the right amount of malt undertones. A little too strong fizz sensation on the tongue. This is an excellent IPA.

The aroma is everything youíd want in a aromatic IPA. Floral and citrus. I can smell the sweetness. The pour is beautiful...deep gold with a nice white head. The tase is perfect for me. Im liking hoppier beers more and more but this showcases the hops and the malts equally and is so balanced. I can see how it isnít quite hoppy enough. Its sweet and bitter on the finish and has a nice body. Founders doing it right again.
