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.

Not a very bitter IPA. Great after taste. Medium head. Not very hazy. Great drinking IPA. Not too overpowering.

Pours dark amber/copper with a big white head. Great citris/flowery aroma hops. Taste hits you with the citris hops first, but a nice grainy malt backbone softens the hops. Medium bitterness. Nice.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Pours a dark amber with a huge white head. Very hoppy aroma and the hops were dominant in the flavor. Maybe a little fruit, but mainly hops. An excellent IPA.

Now this is the sexiest IPA I’ve encountered since Two Hearted. Only complaint, even though they point it out, the finish isn’t as awesome as hoped for. Would still definitely get this one again.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 In the words of Borat Very niiice. I liiike! I picked this up to complete a variety 6-pack. What a find. I really like the citrus and flowers. Now that I’ve had it several times, I think it is the dope.

pours a lighter orange-gold with two-finger head. Nose is like freshly mown grass, lemony yeast, pastry malt sweetness. Dominant citrusy-melon hops on the palate without being too bitter, very mild underpinning of light sweet caramel malts, finishes with a mild quinine bitterness. A decent IPA, but doesn’t seem quite worth the exorbitant price (in Boston, at least).
