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.

Delicious; hoppy but with great floral notes. Not as in-your-face as the IPAs I usually enjoy. Smooth. From a bottle at Quartino in Chicago into a glass; $6.

This beer deserves silence while drinking. One of the longest and best ever aftertastes. God Save America!

JaKeAFC (601) - ITALY - DEC 20, 2014
35 cl bottle at a bar, 7.2%, 65 IBU, 4.50€. Nice dark amber color and thick offwhite head. Classic IPA smell on the nose. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel malts and a nice load of american floral hops, some fruity esters too. Taste is well balanced, long bitter finish. A very good and solid IPA.

visionthing (2977) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2014
35,5cl can from Systembolate, Strömstad. Pours slightly hazy amber with a lasting off-white head. Quite intensive hoppy aroma with pine, citrus, tropical fruits, caramel and hints grass and herbs. Fairly sweet with nice hoppy and fruity flavours and a somewhat dry, and quite bitter finish with citrusy notes. Bitter aftertaste with notes of grapefruit. Medium to full body with carbonation slightly on the soft side. Not the freshest IPA, but certainly a decent one anyway. Would love to try it fresh some day.

Dark gold and capped with a lacy white foam, the brew is giving off a monster aroma of hops; dank and heady. The first sip is a medium-bodied, rich, deep pine resin; it travels the sides of my tongue with a jaw-popping bitter and wrapping underneath to create a mouth-watering experience. I wish more IPAs were dry-hopped, because the flavor is so much more true to the actual plant. This is bitter, but buoyed with malt; balanced enough to take the bitter to an enjoyable spot, but without taking away the nature of the hops. Liking it a lot. I believe it could be a bit fresher, and am starting to believe that it’s true that two months should be the limit on any IPA, but four months out is not taking away the beauty of this beer. The palate is dry, the finish short and the lacing on the glass is visually appealing and consistent on the glass. If Founders was in the area, this may be a favorite go-to for me!

First time drinking a Founders beer because Founders beers are not available in Maryland. Delicious! Bottled on 10/29/2014. A solid IPA.

smaynard6000 (657) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2014
12oz can. Pours amber with an average-sized head. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus. Very hoppy bitter flavor with strong citrus notes. Long bitter finish. This is very good.

King_Alex_II (108) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Very solid IPA, with characteristic centennial hops (at least that’s what is says on the etiquette). Kind of sweetish notes that develop, but a bit more hoppy bitterness wouldn’t have hurt. A slight muddy hop taste.

canned. thanks to mowbeer for arranging delivery to pilsen. clear amber with a steady head; plenty of zesty citrus and pine in the aroma; good whack of bitterness. no big surprises but that’s not such a bad thing in this case
