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.

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.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - AUG 25, 2008
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).

12oz. bottle - Nice dry hopped IPA, very well balanced - citrus abounds and the malt pairs with it nicely. Very tasty.

[1590-20080816] 355mL bottle. Citrus and navel orange zest aroma. Hazy, dark amber orange body with quick off-white bubbles. Orange zesty bitter flavour has sweet orange throughout. Medium body. Very nicely made.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours an orange-amber, with a slight lacy head. Very nice aroma of floral hops. Flavor is floral hops, with a bit of an off-putting bitter soapiness. The malt is not particularly well-balanced. Slightly astringent mouthfeel. Not bad, but somewhat disappointing.

Bottle. Amber orange with tall off-white head. Slightly grassy hops flavor with grapfruit, pine and caramel. A smooth drinking IPA.

I like this beer a lot. Leaves your mouth with bitters and a bit of tartness. Kinda makes you reach for another sip.
