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.

Look - Pours an orange/amber color. Nice head cream head. Cloudy. Smell - Fruity/citrusy hop smell, bitter/sweet, grapefruity. Taste - Bitter, but not overwhelming. Fruity/citrus taste. Bitterness lingers. But in a good way. Present long after you drink it.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 Pours an orange copper color that is quite cloudy.. Creamy hoppy aroma... Not nearly the hop kick i was expecting, but rather a creamy slightly malter than hoppier hit... almost similar to an ESB initially... Then the hop presence subtly takes hold and finish dry... Almost tasted like i would expect an imperial ESB to taste... Not bad...

Pours a cloudy golden orange color with off-white head. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops and pine. Very well balance considering how hoppy it is. A nice amount of malt compliments the dry bitter hop finish.

My first Founders brew... Wow, what a beautiful IPA! Coppery orange color with a very fluffy white head.. Seems darker than other IPAs.. Huge, pungent aroma of piney hops that’s really nice... Maybe the best smelling IPA yet.. Hmmm... Taste definitely doesn’t match the aroma. Very malty and tea-like up front which leads to a lingering bitterness on the finish. I was hoping for a Two Hearted experience and just didn’t get it. It looks the part and smells the part, but it ends there. Its good but just not great like I was hoping.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Very very nice. Pours orange with a nice head. Aroma is more pine than citrus, flavor is tart and bitter, but in a good way. Not as malty and smooth as the description indicates, but is great ina bitter/tangy way. Probably actually a better value than Devil Dancer, since it’s about $2 a bottle compared to DD’s $4.50.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Clear, deep, rich gold. Small orange head. Nose of citrus and pine, typical PNW hopping nose. Taste of sweet amber malts, orange and pine, plenty of bitterness but good balance, bitter and slightly caramel sweet finish. Slightly cream in the mouth. Good IPA, one of my favorite styles.

Pours deep copper with a thich, frothy head. Aroma of toffee, citrus, and hops. Nice malt backbone with a long bitter finish. I extpected the tatse to be slightly bigger. Very good IPA.

12 oz bottle. Golden orange with a big off-white head. Great citrusy hop aroma. Good malt flavor to balance all the citrus hop bitterness. A nice lingering bitter finish. Great IPA.
