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.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Amber white head. Nose is intense Centennial pine/citrus and caramel. Flavour is really well balanced between the hops and caramel, finish is quick. really simple beer done well, I think I’m on a non-caramel IPA kick right now along with a lot of raters but this is a 90 percentile caramel IPA. 99? Maybe I’ve just had too many beers like this to consider it such.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
An amber hued beer, cloudy and pours with a nice two finger foamy head. Well carbonated. Aroma is fresh floral hops with a sutle malt presence. A flavorful tasting beer with a hop taste of citrus and pine resin notes, Malts take a back seat on this one with hops playing the staring role. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit watery but is well balanced. A bit bitter in the aftertaste. A good IPA for sure but nothing really outstanding in my opinon.

SamTheBarrel (385) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
355ml can, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Appearance is hazy dark amber with a medium-heavy sized foamy beige head with good retention, that left lacing on the glass when reduced. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peels, resin and pineapple. Flavour of orange peels, caramel, butterscotch, grapefruit and spices. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. A great well balanced IPA with a robust malt backbone and a nice mouthfeel.

Nische (651) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
Pouts light amber with fluffy white head that lasts well. Quick aroma of fruity hops not overly strong but nice and subtle. Flavor is lightly hoppy up front mostly peach and stone fruit. Real pungent hoppiness on the finish. Really nice.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 9 July. Poured a deep golden, with a dense white head and some lacing. Strong herbal aroma, with some sweet fruit and a slightly medicinal quality. Spicy flavours, with grassy hops and biscuity malt to balance. Finish was peppery hop, butterscotch and a good, balanced bitterness.

Senap (334) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
En smakrik och ändå mild ipa. Väldigt "amerikansk" i smaken. Det är i detta fall ett bra betyg.

CanCrusher (603) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle 0,35L. Cloudy, orange/copper colour with average big, creamy, off-white head. Strong, fruity aroma of mango, peach, pineapple, orange and similar tropical fruits. Taste starts heavy bitter with some caramel malts and finish heavy bitter with long lasting aftertaste. Full body, dry texture, soft carbonation. Excellent, bitter IPA, just the way I like it...
