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.

On draft @ Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Pours crystal clear copper color with pillowy off white head. Great lacing. A light aroma with a mixture of citrus and malt. Mild IPA hoppiness. Mild enough that some sweet crystal malts shine through and take over the flavor briefly. Centennial is one tasty hop. I get bits of bitter grapefruit and some sweeter grapefruit juice along with hints of floral hops.YUM.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Poured into a pint glass with a large frothy off white head. Hazy Dark Amber Colour. The Aroma of grapefruit and fresh orange peels are screaming and floral scents making up the background aroma. Taste is sweet, creamy and malty. Hops then transitioning giving the burst of citrus bitterness undertaking the role that this is an IPA. Finishing taste is vinus, lasting palate that is very delicous. Great head retention and nice lacing of the glass. Carbonation is perfectly matched with this brew.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Picked up a sixer at the Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire, WI. Pours a hazy copperish gold brew with a medium sized white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, orange peel, some graham crackers with brown sugar, and the Centennial hops. (good and piney). Flavor is smooth, a little thick malty, oily and sweet. Not much IPA hop bite as most other IPA but a sweet aftertaste.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Hazey amber pour with lots of foamy white head. Lots of citrus hops with orange and grapefruit being the most distinct. Orange citrus hop dominates the body but goes down through without a lot of bite to the finish.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Bottled, received in trade with ’pantanap.’ This is a great single IPA. Pours a nice cantalope type color and the aroma is jumping. The flavor is big, really big for a single. Citrus with tad of malt and nice lightly creamy texture. Dang, I wish Founders had distribution out here, this is good! Got to try their Devil Dancer triple soon!

12 oz bottle. Hop and malt flavors burst in your mouth when you sip this one then disappear. I has a strong hop flavor as well a a dencetm malt profile and a noticable alcohol bite. Great balance for this style.

Pours burnt orange amber, an immense head grows and stays there proudly displaying itself, I think just about every bottle I have had of the Centennial has foamed up in a big way, sweet malt, caramel, toffee, faint butterscotch candy aromas, pine and floral scents, faint spices on the nose, pale malt, caramel, and sweet flavors, citrus in the mouth with some pepper on the palate, medium plus dry drink, I thought this IPA was well balanced.

Reddish-gold color. Cloudy. Great, hoppy smell. Taste starts very promising but ends a bit short. Hard to explain. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great IPA. Maybe just preference, but to me it’s missing something at the end.

I decided to just dump this beer into my pint glass and the head boomed up. After some time the head went down but remained hovering over the cloudy honey color underneath. The taste was ok... It doesn’t last on your tongue for a long period of time and the hops aren’t over whelming. But when you taste it you know your drinking an IPA. Overall it’s a good beer. Not to heavy it’s light to drink but at the same time one is enough for me.
