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 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.

Draft was a hazy amber orange with a small head that laced as I drank. Strong pine and grapefruit aroma. Lively bitter flavor that sticks to the inside of the mouth. Long dry finish. This beer is a winner!

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a hazy amber with thin, bubbly head. Citrus hops on the nose with with caramel malts and a presence of the alcohol. Tastes kind of bland though. Alcohol, hops and na overdose of sweetness. I can just detect the alcohol here, and itís not making the beer better as a result. Finishes well enough.

Pour is hazy orange. Aroma is of citrus, mango, tangerine, and grapefruit. Very creamy smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking and very solid on the IPA scale. I thouroghly enjoyed this beer which I consider just a tad under my top IPAís which are Bells Two Hearted and Surly Furious.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Honey like malty aroma with pineapple hops notes. Amber brown colors with a slightly off white head. Roasted malty initial bite, good bitter hoppy balance. Flavors are good and rich for a regular IPA. Medium palate - not thin but easy to drink and fulfilling. Very good.

Quaint, but pleasing aroma. Slightly cloudy appearence, with nice deep amber color. Flavor also a bit thin but utterly satisfying. One for the masses to enjoy.

Solid IPA, but I expected more. The aroma wasnt as strong as other IPAs that ive had, nor was the complexity of the taste. Very solid though.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle from Stockertown Beverage, PA. Aroma strikes a chord with me as the grapefruit jumps out over some pine needles and some lemon fruits. On sip the dryness has a nice centennial hoppy bite along with some biscuit and a small layer of maltiness underneath. Even though the aroma rocks and the beer has a nice creamy texture, it doesnít seem overly complex in regards to the flavor. But it makes for a solid enjoyable and highly drinkable brew.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. A very cloudy amber with thin white head. Aroma is nice of citrus hops. I thought the flavor was a little disappointing though. The hop flavor does not come out very much and just kind of leaves me wanting.

Iím sippin on one right now, and itís almost perfect. Very hoppy, and flavorful. Not quite as good as two hearted, but very close.

12 oz bottle thanks to fordest for providing me with yet another beer so I donít drink anything he hasnt had. Flavors of malts and mild hopps. Good balance of both made this a pretty good IPA.
