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.

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours a amber orange with a nice frothy white head, and good lacing. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, and malts become present. Flavor is malty, hops are sweet and fruits appear. Overall balanced nicely, very drinkable, and its right on with what I was expecting.

smroush (156) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Distinct floral aroma; fruity citrus aroma; sweet bready malt aroma. Attractive copper color; just slightly hazy; small off-white to light tan head. Taste is a very nice balance of sweet and bitter. Medium bodied; slick texture; average carbonation; finish is moderately long with fruity hop bitterness and sweet malts. Overall a quite good IPA; I particularly like the balance of hop fruity bitterness and sweet bready malts.

IlGagario (25) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 5, 2016
In bottiglia, a casa. Colore ambra con toni rosso intenso. Impressionante voluminosa testa bianca, alta e ricca, da soapy a pannosa, croccante e piccante, di ottima persistenza. Olfatto equamente maltato e luppolato, con secondario naso di agrumi spassi. Aroma forte e deciso, quasi caldo e liquoroso seppure rinfrescante, di resina e pino (molto presenti), di malto e luppolo, cannella bruciata, con lontana sensazione citrica di scorza grezza d’agrume (conferita dal luppolo Centennial) coperta dall’alcool (molto presente nonostante lo stile). Corpo pieno, tessuto oleoso, croccante e piccante. Una Ipa robusta, ai limiti dell’imperial (ma NON una imperial), molto statunitense, con caratteri classici, e ciò nondimeno di grande personalità.

BrettGT (18) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2016
Aroma is citrusy, floral, notes of sweet mandarin and light malty caramel. Color is nicely amber, two-finger head, pretty cloudy, and frothy head. Taste is very balanced between malt sweetness and hop bitterness for an IPA. Medium body, light sticky texture, medium-light carbonation. Overall a well balanced and well crafted IPA.

God humlet øl, en IPA der rammer godt det en IPA skal have, den er meget blpmsteragtig i aromaen.

Henkk4 (7) - FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016 does not count
Hazy amber color, tan head. Sweet and malty aroma with notes of caramel and brown sugar. Taste follows the aroma with medium bitter hoppiness. Medium-plus body with oily palate. This IPA has more sweet maltiness than usual.

SG111 (808) - New York, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Tap at noggin room, Petoskey. Pours deep golden copper, small head. Aroma is citrus, orange, and just classic Centennial hops. Distinct maltiness (Midwest ipa), caramel. Flavor is a bit more bitter, orange citrus, but lots of caramel. Big Midwest ipa flavor. It’s very good, solid staple.

polo_marco (118) - milton, Vermont, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Smells of sweet bread and raisans. Looks hazy dark copper almost reddish. Taste of sweet Orange and mango some malt Flavor slight bitter boozy finish. Med body with light cardonation. Was sweeter and more fruity rind juice flavor then I was expecting based on what I slept. Nice work.

Can from Bradleys. Slightly opaque copper with a fluffy slightly off-white head. Aroma is full of resin and pine, very malty. Very dry and bitter flavour, a real mouthful.
