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 light copper with a nice white head. Aroma is heavy on citrus and pine with a bit of sweetness to balance. Taste is hoppy but not overpowering actually one of the most balanced IPA’s i’ve had. This stuff rocks. Thanks ross!

Pours a light copper with a small tight head. Aroma of oranges and pine. A little soapy, but otherwise a great taste to this with hops and sweet citrus.

Bottle. Aroma nice hoppy flow from my glass. Pours a nice amber. Flavor was a nice balance of malts and hops, primarily a piney sweetness. Palate was nice fullness and good finish. Overall this was a nice’n.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a clear copper/amber color with a couple inches of fluffy off-white foam. A little bit of lacing, but not much. Faint hops in the aroma. Tastes pretty good with a solid but not powerful malt backbone, and ample spicy piney hops. A bit thin in the mouthfeel department, but a nice aftertaste. I pick up a hint of lemon and some residual alcohol.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 Bottle from1FastSTi. Clear golden/yellow color. Nice white head. The taste was of citrus hops and some malts. For some strange reason I tasted chocolate in the finish.

I love Founder’s beers, Red Rye and Black Rye in particular. This IPA was not one of my favorites, as it is extremely grassy-tasting, reminiscent to me of Bell’s Hopslam. It pours a red color with an abundant white head. It smells vaguely sour (at least for an IPA) with a cut-grass smell. The flavor is hoppy, but not in a sweet, citrusy, floral, or piney way. Instead, this hoppy taste is slightly sour and tastes a bit like cut-grass, like Bell’s Hopslam. I didn’t particularly care for this approach to an IPA, although I can see how others might feel differently. Mouthfeel was good...fine bubbles which denoted the feeling of softness and sophistication. I won’t be drinking this beer again, yet I would recommend it just because it is a bit unique.

The beer has a fuckin load of sediment floating around. It was pretty good, not as great as I was led to believe. Nice flavors, and hop aroma, but not as potent as some other, more favorable IPAs. It’s better than Harpoon, and a slew of other macro IPA’s, but this couldn’t even suck the Stone Ruination’s cock.

Huge bubbly pour. Hop and citrus aromas. I love IPA’s but, not a fan of the Centennial Hop due to bitterness. Good but not great beer.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a bright orange-red color with lingering off-white head and good lacing thru the entire glass. Aroma was floral and grapefruit/citrus. Flavor was more citrus, and the finish was smooth, slightly bitter, and very hoppy. A good beer.
