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.

12 oz bottle from a trade with thecheeseman. pours hazy orange with a midsized off white head. perfect IPA appearance. i love when brewers dont filter an IPA and the glass is bright and full of orange liquid but you cant see through it. its like looking into a orange fog of hoppiness. the aroma is classic centennial, big citrus, some big malts underneath as well. the flavour starts of quite hoppy again with citrus, the malt hold everything together in the middle and then there is a bitter black tea finish. its full in the mouth but not overly complex. this is an above average IPA.

Outstanding thirst quencher. Citrus, floral, and hop aroma give way to a gorgeous full bodied hop experience. Great beer.

Dark golden with a mostly maintained off-white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and hop resins. Tastes of herbal, lightly citric hops with notes of pine, sweet orange with caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate resins.

Pours a deep copper color ,with a medium foamy white head. Smells of crisp hops and grapefruit citrus, with a small malt presence. The flavor is very crisp and sharp with a big juicy grapefruit citrus and hop presence. very nice hop bitterness left in the finish and lingering aftertaste. really nice drinking lively IPA. Very tasty.

Transparent copper, oily after the small beige head dissipates quickly. Nose has pine and grapefruit, very clean hop bitterness. Flavor has more caramel malt but is still very bitter, lots of citrus and pine, slight alcohol. A little salty and thin, quite dry. Possibly my favorite of the Founders I have tasted.

Medium amber pour with a nice white head. Hop aroma is present as soon as I poured the beer. Smells floral with some citrus in it. Taste of the hops hit me first, then some bitterness on the tongue. Lacing appears after each sip. A very decent IPA.
