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.

The aroma one this IPA is full of hop resins, a little floral notes, and some nice caramel doughy malts. The appearance is a hazy orange color with a fluffy initial head, that slithers down the side of the glass into a nice slice of white head. The taste is a very complex overlay of light sweetness disguised under the oily resin and hop note moderate bitterness. The body is medium - leaning towards light with an oily texture that has an adequate carbonation and a nicely balanced buttery bitter finish. Great IPA

Being that centennial hops are one of my favorites...this beer is quite tasty. Aroma and flavor are packed with citrus and pine....as well as a nice malt backbone. Great session IPA!

Orangeish pour with slight white head. Hoppy aroma of malts, citrus, and lemon. Tangerine comes more in the flavor which is sweet and not too carbonated. Finish is slightly bitter but not too bad. Smooth IPA.

Light orange colour with a sticky off.white head. Some spiderwebby lazings on the glass. Aroma is sweet hops, tropical fruit and light malt. Flavour is sweet but hoppy with notes of tangerine and passion fruit. Ends on a fairly bitter and fruity note. Body is medium with fairly low carbonation. ok.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2011 Founder’s brews my favorite porter and imperial stout, so I expect everything they produce to be excellent. The Centennial IPA is very good, thought not my favorite IPA. This IPA has one of the nicest aromas around and a great taste to boot. *Re-rated 10.6.11 - Enjoy this even more after several goarounds. Who would of thought a single-hop IPA would taste so complete, but it does.

Bottle. Poured a orangish yellow color with a little white head that went rather quickly. Left lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was pine, grass, and spruce. Flavor was bitter. Hops, citrus, and pine. Very dry finish. A great ipa.

Tap at Dirty Truth in N- Hampton . Copper hue with white head . Smells of lean hops. Flavor of moderate bitter hops with a malty backdrop. Finish is well balanced. Solid brew and easy to drink.

Bottle@Home. Light fruity and very grassy aroma. Light amber colour, off-white head, fair lace. Sweet, very bitter, light fruity, very grassy, loads of hops. Sticky, dry finish, alcoholic. Too grassy and hoppy in my opinion. This makes the beer tough to enjoy.

Bottled 355ml. Great hop profile of Centennial. Hop resin and grapefruit showing up in both nose and taste. Good bitterness. Wonderful long dry bitter finish which makes you eager to drink more. A really good IPA.
