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.

bottled. pours golden amber, with a minimal head. aromas similar to most IPAs--grass, spruce and grapefruit. well balanced beer with the taste of alcohol in the forefront. a bit sweet and bitter at the same time. smooth bitter finish that lasts.

The eponymously hopped beer from Founders provides a bracing IPA flavor in the American tradition. A (presumably) single-hopped expression of an IPA, Centennial provides a palate orientation to the flavors of the hop. The approach has a cognate in the art of Piet Mondrian’s neo-plasticism. Brewing a beer with only one hop seems so simple, and yet it turns out so complex at the same time.

Poured about a half finger worth of head which left nice thick and messy lacing on the sides of the glass. Color is a very clear copper. Aroma is heavy on the floral and slightly resiny hops, with a little bit of buttery sweetness as well. The taste has a rich bouquet of floral hops, with some floral and earthy hops making an appearance on the aftertaste. The backbone has a fair bit of malts, which give this a strong taste of dough-like sweetness which balance out the otherwise strong hops. A superb example of the style.

Shoutout to my main man AwYeh for this. Poured a sap brown, with a touch of orange; average amount of pillowy white head formed and didn’t retain well. Aroma was strongly floral more than any citrus or bitter hop smell. Did get some grapefruit and orange, overall really nice nose. Taste is similar, with no overload of hops, a great amount of citrusy sweetness that balances the bitterness perfectly. Malt is quite nice as well in the background. Has a great weight in terms of palate which makes you want to keep drinking this.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Hazy unfiltered orange brown color. Could not get a good head on this not matter how hard I tried. That said, not much retention or lacing. 4.5 S: Really nice aroma. Big citrus smell. Pineapple sticks out like a muthafucka, something I’ve never experienced in an IPA. Also some grapefruit and floral hops. Gonna have to dry-hop with Centennial sometime. Malt character is sweet. 4.0 T: Damn good taste. Not overloaded with hop flavor (which is what I usually like) but just so well balanced it doesn’t matter. Pineapple flavor isn’t there, but the grapefruit is along with some other citrusy tones. Bitter on finish. Malts lend a sweet balance. 4.5 M: Medium-heavy body. Clean and crisp, yet very silky. 4.0 D: Very good. Hopefully one day I can get another bottle and a head will form. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-27-2009 03:51:11

Tasted on tap at the brewpub. Pours amber. Taste of decent malt, balanced well with some mild hops. Good IPA, but nothing earth-shattering.

One of my favorite IPAs. Very nice hop bitterness, but not as strong as some others. A nice sessionable IPA that doesn’t overwhelm on the bitterness and is very well balanced.
