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 headís floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This aleís sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Pours gold with a bit of lacing on the glass. Nose is orange and floral hops, some caramel and toffee malt backbone. Flavor slightly fruity, orange hops, light caramel and toffee malt backbone whose sweetness is cut with nice piney bitter finish. Very solid, very drinkable, though I think the over 7% abv could catch up fast.

NOT IMPRESSED!! All the hype and talk about this beer and I was disappointed.Not that itís a horrible beer but not worthy of the ratings Iíve seen.Iím a HUGE IPA fan and this beer lacked all I love in an IPA.Not very hoppy and almost had a strange soapy bitterness at the end.The Double Trouble by Founders was solid but this beer...not for me.You could have told me this was Budís new IPA or MILLERíS and Iíd have believed you.Sorry Founders this one is a miss for me.

Founders is a pretty solid brewer. This is a nice IPA, though I might like the RYE P.A. better. Nice hop flavor with citrus aftertaste.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2010
(Bottled) Clear golden with a medium, firm and lacy head. Very exotic-fruity aroma with resiny pine and grass. Flavor is quite bitter with pine-resiny, berryish, woody, fresh and aromatic hops. Dry, but balanced with maltiness. Medium body, soft carbonation, well-hidden alcohol. A fresh and tasty, nicely dry and balanced IPA.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours coppery brown, little hazy, thin white head, light speckling of lace on the glass. Aroma is toasty bread and delicious fruity and citrusy hops - touch of honey. The flavor starts malty and bittersweet with pleasant resiny and grapefruity hop flavor and delicious level of malt sweetness. Midpalate has firm but very well balanced bitterness. Finish is somewhat dry with a decent bit of residual sweetness, an excellent hop profile (some citrus, light earthiness, hint of pine), and a touch of fruity esters. Mouthfeel is full bodied and moderately carbonated - very quaffable. Overall, a delicious IPA. Will definitely buy more.
