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.

Delightful citrus aroma of orange, grapefruit, and rose hips. Cloudy, dark golden, full of floaties, thin head, some lacing. The flavor of honeycomb goes straight to the head. Rose hip and grapefruit notes abound.Bitter strawberry finish. The sweet honey, tart grapefruit and bitter rose hip flavors blend in perfect harmony. This may be too perfumey for some, but I absolutely LOVE this beer! Truly outstanding.

I find this IPA one of the best I have tried. Very well balanced and hoppy. Great head and good flavor. I hope that I one day can try this great beer on tap.

Almost no aroma, draft. Dark yellow/amber light pour, light carbonation. Med. body. Very bitter- it gives you that bitter feeling int he back of your mouth. It’s pretty overpowering, too over the top to be really enjoyable for me.

Damico (2799) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2009
The dry hopping contributes largely to the aroma and the flavor. As explained in the description, it really is never too bitter, which is impressive and really makes it an excellent IPA overall. The color is a beautiful reddish brown ale. Founders NEVER disappoints.

Nice fruity aroma, reminds me of strawberries with hops. it tastes like it smells, strawberries and hops. Nice golden amber colour. i like this one, a litle different, and a well brewed beer.

omhper (20678) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Bottled ay Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy amber, brief head. Peachy soapy hop aroma,. Sweet and compact with clean mouthfeel. The peachy, soapy hops together with overt sweetness and clean, somewhat syrupy malt forms an immense bitterness that gets slight inky edges. While it contains loads of pleasnt flavours it’s too sweet and unbalanced to live up to my high expectations on this brewer.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - SEP 5, 2009
12oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a slightly hazy gold with about a finger of fine bubbled white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma with some bready malt. The hops jump right out at you, but they are backed up with a solid malt base. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Long drying finish from the hops. Pretty drinkable for such a hoppy beer. I can see this one becoming a regular in my rotation.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Draft at Tylers. Orange hue with small white head. Nose is big citrus and floral hops mostly. Flavor is balanced with sweet malts and slightly bitter hops, finishes with a tinge of fruity sweetness. A solid IPA with good hop/malt balance and easily drinkable!

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
