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.

N0AH (32) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2011
The eponymously hopped beer from Founders provides a bracing IPA flavor in the American tradition. A (presumably) single-hopped expression of an IPA, Centennial provides a palate orientation to the flavors of the hop. The approach has a cognate in the art of Piet Mondrian’s neo-plasticism. Brewing a beer with only one hop seems so simple, and yet it turns out so complex at the same time.

CanCrusher (600) - 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...

whoisghost (15) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
A nice dark and somewhat cloudy appearance. Reasonably creamy head with a persistent lace. Honey and citrus nose, smells very hoppy. Sweet at first and ends with a moderate bitter taste, lingers well. A little dry with decent carbonation, despite the dry still coats the mouth well.

johnnyoski (427) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Semi-clear dark amber color with a thin white head. Sweet citrus and grassy aroma. Tart citrus flavor is balanced nicely by a heavy malt profile that finishes with a lingering hop bitterness. Well carbonated with a dry texture. Very solid representation of the style.

VictorStr (1202) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Det här var kalas ! Mycket humle och balanserad bitterhet. Väldigt balanserad i smaken och kroppen. Lite blommig i aromen kanske, del citrus i smaken. Loved it !

Pour is clear dark copper with a lightish off white head, pretty. Aroma of pine hop, old citrus, grapefruit, bready malt, floral hop. Flavor is sweet & sticky hop up front, ends with some bitter grapefruit. Very nice balance, smooth operator.

Tuoksussa sitrusta, maku hieman katkera vahvasti humaloitu. Maussa tuli mieleen pieni stoutmaisuus, hennosti täyteläinen.
