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 thanks to mmm///beer. deep gold pour with a 1 finger beige head. hops, flowers and slight malts on the nose. smooth on the palate with a great smooth hop flavor that is quite balanced. slight bitterness on the way down but it’s very tolerable.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2008 Very nice IPA w/ strong aroma.flavor is floral, spicy,citrusy, and of course hoppy. Very enjoyable. I rerated this after purchasing a six pack of these

Cannot believe this IPA is not in the top 5. The combination of dry hopping AND leaving it unflitered has forged the PERFECT..and I again I say to this day PERFECT IPA for me. The dry hopping here produces a nice "gumball" mouthfeel, while the unfiltered floaters root it diametrically to the earth. Wish I didn’t have to trek to Hudson, WI to get it. But I do...and will. Try it for yourself. I know raters here tend to rate higher the higher the ABV. Just remember this is an IPA not a Double IPA.

pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2008
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

Not a very bitter IPA. Great after taste. Medium head. Not very hazy. Great drinking IPA. Not too overpowering.

undsioux7 (793) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Pours dark amber/copper with a big white head. Great citris/flowery aroma hops. Taste hits you with the citris hops first, but a nice grainy malt backbone softens the hops. Medium bitterness. Nice.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a dark amber with a huge white head. Very hoppy aroma and the hops were dominant in the flavor. Maybe a little fruit, but mainly hops. An excellent IPA.

That1Guy (1882) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Now this is the sexiest IPA I’ve encountered since Two Hearted. Only complaint, even though they point it out, the finish isn’t as awesome as hoped for. Would still definitely get this one again.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 In the words of Borat Very niiice. I liiike! I picked this up to complete a variety 6-pack. What a find. I really like the citrus and flowers. Now that I’ve had it several times, I think it is the dope.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - AUG 25, 2008
pours a lighter orange-gold with two-finger head. Nose is like freshly mown grass, lemony yeast, pastry malt sweetness. Dominant citrusy-melon hops on the palate without being too bitter, very mild underpinning of light sweet caramel malts, finishes with a mild quinine bitterness. A decent IPA, but doesn’t seem quite worth the exorbitant price (in Boston, at least).
