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.

Sathorael (159) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 5, 2016
On tap in Visalia ca...never would have guessed. Aromas of bisquit, cracker, floral hops, citrus, and a hint of pint taste is cereal, cracker, pine, citrus rind, and some earthy notes. Finish is clean and subtle with no lingering bitterness.

chadski (32) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Surprised at how malty the nose is. Quite a unique and different experience from the now flooded market of west coast IPA's. Lacks a lot of the citrus character but very nice hoppy bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml can at home. Deep amber with a white head that fades away fast and leaves nothing on the glass. Flowers, mango, melon, pine on the nose, medium intensity. Nice, powerful bitterness but a bit hollow, hints of grapefruit, pine and mango again. Average carbonation, medium body, dry, crisp. It’s not bad especially that it’s a single hop but it’s one-dimensional.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2016
355ml bottle. Golden-orange in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of citrus hops, lemons and oranges, some sweetness. The flavour is lightly bitter, hoppy, citrus, floral, some sweetness. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. A nice very easy to drink IPA. Very good.
