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 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.

Thanks to kryptic for this bottle. Nice IPA color and head. Very floral nose with citrus, but more floral hops than the typical citrus hops. Taste is flowery with some grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Crisp medium body with bitter, clean finish. Nice beer.

This one is AMAZING. Pours cloudy amber (itís unfiltered) with a high head that sparkles with citrus hops aroma. First sip explodes with grapefruit and citrus notes with a very subdued, sweet malt backbone. Second sip was more of a gulp, splashes of sweet malt hit you once you get used to the hops. I think i have a new favorite IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 Super floral, slightly sweet and citrusy and somewhat dense mouthfeel, brewed in the English tradition of a "thick" malt body. Well made.

dogfishho (586) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a fluffy white head that leaves nice lacing and never dissipates. The aroma is dominated by the hops, but there is a complexity to it, with floral and grapefruit notes. The flavor is spectacular. The hops are flavorful, but not overly aggressive. The malt has a honey flavor that balances well. The finish is so clean and crisp that it encourages gulping. Fantastic IPA. This is what all of the crap breweries should be striving for.

Bottle. Pours a pale translucent copper with a moderate light tan head, little lacing. Aroma is full floral hops and nectar. Sweet upfront flavor with a full grassy hops body, malts are subdued. Full bodied and smooth with a strong lasting bitter finish.

Gregis (1279) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Pours a hazy, amber orange with a ton of fine sediment and a crazy-huge, pillowy beige head that slowly diminishes leaving sticky lace in its wake. The head generated by this beer is unreal. A half an inch pour results in an inch or more frothy head. Translation: be prepared to wait on this one. The nose is citric and floral hops over a sweet caramel malt backing. Light to medium-bodied with a dry, moderately bitter finish that squeezes the sides of your tongue. The flavor is a blend of citrus and green apple over caramel malt with lesser hop notes of flowers and mild resin. This is a unique and flavorful IPA. If it were available locally, it would probably be part of my regular hop-fix rotation.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 19, 2007
Pours a copper color. Smells of sweet hops, caster sugar, pine and sweet ruby red grapefruit. Taste is exhibits some caramel and toffee malt with prodigious pine hops (pineapples, cones and needles). Very good, very strong IPA. Had on tap at Perlyís Bakery in Easton, PA.

A great IPA, with a strong kick and powerful hop presence. The aroma alone will kick your nostrils into gear, preparing you for a hop adventure not soon forgotten.
