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.

Pours a copper color. Smells of sweet hops, caster sugar, pine and sweet ruby red grapefruit. Taste is exhibits some caramel and toffee malt with prodigious pine hops (pineapples, cones and needles). Very good, very strong IPA. Had on tap at Perly’s Bakery in Easton, PA.

A great IPA, with a strong kick and powerful hop presence. The aroma alone will kick your nostrils into gear, preparing you for a hop adventure not soon forgotten.

12-oz. Thanks, um, not sure whom to thank. This might be *the* pineapple IPA of all time. Pours a dense burnished copper, occasionasl golden brown highlights. Loose, sudsy gray head and intermittent lace. Huge sweet floral and pineapple nose. Downright tangy. Medium body, firm carb. Roiling citric flavors pop all over the place--pineapple, mostly, but hints of mango and candied orange. Woodiness underneath it all, and a little bit of nutty, grain-hull malt goodness to boot. Long light clingy finish of very slight resin. Great stuff.

12 oz bottle...Light amber-orange color with medium white lasting head. Awesome citrus hop aroma really makes me want to tear into this. Flavor is mainly citrus like hops with a sweet malty backdrop and just a slight hint of pine. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness. Nice IPA.

Pours a ruby orange with light, soapy head. Strong citrus and hop odors. Starts off with a nice crisp maltiness, and ends with a great hoppy bitterness. A really interesting IPA- great balance between malts and hops.

This is a really beautiful IPA. It’s nice to have an IPA once in a while that’s not viciously hopped, and pays attention to the malt character as well. Beautiful big head that lasts forever and leaves tons of lace on the glass. The dry-hopping adds a wonderfully floral fresh aroma and flavor.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Bottle: Pours a deep, slightly hazy orange with a creamy dense, light tan head. Rich flowery American hop nose, with a solid cookie-malt background. Smells like fresh cookie dough and lemon-zest. A bit thin in body, especially considering the aroma. The flavor is less pronounced than the aroma as well. Has a bisquity malt presence, with a mild cookie malt back. The hop character is limited to a spicy, subtle citrus character, reminiscent of tangerines. The finish has a fresh lingering bitterness. Not as assertively hoppy as I had hoped, but still a very well made and smooth IPA.

Holtguy (131) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Orange in color, cloudy. Perfect head, whitish. Citrus aroma. Well balanced hops in flavor, with floral, citrus. Good crisp bitterness at the end (but not too bitter).

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Cloudy red and orange appearance with an off-white head. Aroma was weakly reminiscent of citrus and floral but lacked that punch I expect from an IPA. Flavor was equally disappointing. Not my favorite IPA.
