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.

Bottle. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma with mild caramel and toast background. Clear amber-ruby with lots of carbonation up to a lasting, thick white head. Very balanced with a strong malt presence and well-rounded hop character providing both bitterness and a mild pine and orange peel flavor. Very full-bodied, and just the right amount of carbonation. Clean and drinkable

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle from Sams poured into a tulip. Amber orange pour; slightly hazy with a fluffy head and great lacing. My first impression was that of pine and resin, but it was quickly replaced with lovely candied orange (and peel), sweet grapefruit, and great floral notes. Still some nice resin and bit of sweet malt behind it as well. Body not too sticky at all. Very impressed.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle into Sam Adams Lager glass. Pours a cloudy light copper, with a small, fluffy off-white head that settles into a long-lasting cap. Lots of lacing in this one. Nose is quite citrusy, with a rind-like bitterness underneath. Taste starts off with a heavy citrus sweetness, moving from that to a slightly astringent bitterness that counters an even more intense citrus sweetness, like candied oranges. Finish is moderately long, lightly bitter, with some gorgeous sweet citrus notes peeking through a bit further into it. Fantastic. Mouthfeel is lively but restrained, tingly, slick, full body.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 One of the best smelling beers. The head pours thick but disappears midway through. Typical IPA taste, nice bitter crisp finish. Again, the initial head and smell of this beer make it worthwhile.

JoeinDahlem (1378) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2009
Great use of great hops. Bottle pours nice reddish-gold color with decent white head that fades. Incredible fruity-hop nose, like all the best citrus without the green vegetables. Flavor is mildly sweet checked by serious hop bitterness that is not overdone. That combo of citrus backdrop and sweetness gives that perfect juicy impression. Fairy big body, a little thick and sticky where I prefer crisp and dry. But that nice citrus hop lingers for a long finish.

pours a nice light amber (reminded me of iced tea) and smelled very floral and citrusy...pineapple notes. excellent hoppiness but not too dry. soft velvety mouthfeel and a long subtle finish that is very enjoyable

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2009
12oz bottle pours a cloudy orange with a nice off white head, decent retention and minimal lacing. Aromas of piney hops, light citrus, and a noticeable malty nose. Flavors of caramel, citrus, pine, resin, and a decent lingering bitterness.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle. Potent hoppy citrus and pine aroma. Hazy orange body, thick chunky off-white head. Flavor a very pleasing blend of citrusy hops and malty backbone, somewhat floral and spicy as well.
