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.

RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Pours medium amber with a slight orange bias, white head was small and faded quickly to medium, sticky, super fine-bubbled lacing. Nose is nicely hoppy with floral, pine and citrus notes. Caramel is hinted at subtly. Medium mouthfeel, lively carbonation, hint of sweet but a nice moderate cascade of bitter immidiately follows and lingers on the finish. Really good caramel malt body underlying the powerful hops character, a completely solid IPA.

simcoe_citra (20) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
My first rating on ratebeer. Not a bad beer to start my career with. Bottle from beermerchants.com. Pours a hazy reddish-orange, with a small, almost white head. Caramel quite prevalent in the aroma with some citrus. Very well balanced beer with the malt and hops holding hands rather than fighting it out. Creamy and soft with a nice tingle on the sides of the tongue. A decent amount of bitterness in the finish. Overall, this is a very, very nice beer.

Pours amber with white head. Aroma is citrus, florals and a hint of caramel. Taste is bittersweet with the caramel adding sweetness on the finish. Hides the alcohol well.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
Draft at Founders during RBSG. Pours clear red/orange, thin, non-persistent off-white head. Poor lacing. Nose is citrus hops, soft malt. Bright citrus and firm malt on palate, some real spiciness here as well. Sweet grapefruit finish.

This beer, when poured from the bottle, was a little hazy with a nice amber color and an off white, long lasting and lacing head. The aroma made me smile. It has a pine and resiny hop nose with some malt sweetness in the background. The flavor, like the aroma, was mostly of pine and resiny hops with plenty of bitterness, not quite balanced by the malt sweetness, some smooth alcohol, and a dry finish. This is a very nicely done beer. I think I’ll have another.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle at home, big thanks to Steve in New Jersey! l A clear amber pour with a small off white head. Great piney, citrus hop nose that promised good things. Nice mouthfeel. As anticipated the hoppage was of a high quality with a top notch malt backbone that delivered a cracking balance. Very drinkable stuff. A first rate IPA.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle. Bottled on 6/17/10, reviewed on 7/21/10. Pours a nice orange color with a fluffy 2 finger slightly tan head. The aroma is rind and pine with some other citrus notes. Smooth and balanced are the words that come to mind as I drink this. Not extreme one way of the other. I very nice hop bite and bitterness followed by a silky maltiness. Lingering bitterness afterward. A classis IPA in my book. Dangerously drinkable with a 7.2% abv!
