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 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 thatís really nice... Maybe the best smelling IPA yet.. Hmmm... Taste definitely doesnít 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 didnít 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 itís about $2 a bottle compared to DDís $4.50.

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.

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.

Medium dark golden/orange pour with strong aroma of citrus and hops. Palate is real smooth with a creamy hoppy character. Alcohol is hidden real well. Has a bit of a citrusy aftertaste with hints of orange. Pretty good IPA. Might buy again.

(bottle) Pours out dark amber with a white head. Aroma is fairly strong with as OSLO mentioned, strawberry jam, light mandarin orange, pepper, and some caramel malt. Taste is quite sweet with caramel and a hoppy citrus peel bitter finish. The mouthfeel was medium, not too bad.
