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.

Nice amber color with a white head that slowly falls but still sticks around and leaves nice rings of lacing around the glass. Good caramel backbone mixed with earthy and citric hops in the nose. Smell was very good, it just didn’t jump right out at me. Earthy hops with caramel to balance it off, then a soft citric bitterness sets in for the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied. Damn good mouthfeel, maybe a little stickier or heavy and it’d be perfect for me. Doesn’t get much better than this, a damn fine brew. I’ll be picking this up again.

Bottle from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Clear copper pour supporting a medium khaki head. Smells like a West Coast piney IPA forest. Citrusy flavor with some taosted malt, toffee and earthy hops. Crisp dry finish and silky mouthfeel with just enough light carbonation. Well balanced IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 Poured an orange hue with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of centennial hops, hence the name. Flavor was very citrusy, and a little floral with a small malty background.

12 oz. bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber (some floaties) with a large creamy off white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is pine, citrus, herbal with moderately sweet malt hanging out in the shadows. The flavor is dominated up front by the citrus, pine herbal hops. The malt comes through mid palate with some bittering hops finishing things off. Medium bodied easy to drink. This is a solid midwestern IPA.

Probably my favorite IPA to come in a 6pack. Very refreshing. Cloudy and orange, lots of hop scents and flowers. Hint of citrus and pine. I’m very Happy that founders is now in NJ.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 12oz bottle-pours a thin offwhite head with hazy gold color. Aroma is resin/pine, citrus, some medium malt. Taste is resin/pine, citrus-hops, secondary medium malt. The hops have some metallic. 3.6 As the beers warms a bit of the metallic reduces and some caramel from the malt comes out. OK/mild carbonation. 3.8 090102- from the same 6pack of 6 months ago, very smooth. 4.1

BuckeyeBoy (3171) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2008
12oz Bottle Pours out a amber topped with a very nice off white cream head. A great aroma of rich malts and crisp hops. Tast more of the thick and sweet malts. A nice hop on it. Very good IPA.

12 oz bottle into pint. Great hazy honey brown pour with a big rich slightly off-white head and soft carbonation. Aroma includes hints of fruity citrus hops as well as a gentle pine hoppy background. The hop aroma is kind of strange, smells a lot like pure raw and cooked hops that have been taken out of a brew kettle. Flavor is very raw earthy hops and a good amount of pale malt. It is strange and unique, but I like it. Smooth and medium to light bodied on the palate with not to much carbonation at all. Overall: this stuff is good and refreshing, and I really enjoyed the earthiness of the hops - very original flavor as far as I have experienced.
