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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is pine, floral, and citrus. Flavors are floral, citrus, pine, grapefruit, and a sweet malt. Actually quite balanced for all the fruity hops they use. Love this beer!! Founders FTW!

YogiBeera (2464) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Nice amber color with a small head. Beautiful fruit grass and peppery nose. Nice crisp intense hop, pepper and fruit taste. Long lasting and nicely building up gradually. Dry finish.

Bitter and hoppy with strong bitter aftertaste. Need to admit that I am not a big IPA fan thus rating is biased. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EvilCat (80) - FRANCE - AUG 14, 2014
Canette. Robe cuivrée rouge, écume de mousse beige claire. Nez frais et houblonné dominé par des embruns de fleurs fraîches, de violette et de zeste de bergamote. La bouche est caramélisée et légèrement citronnée mais surtout massivement florale. L'amertume vient équilibrée l'ensemble. Longue finale sèche sur cette même dominante florale et bergamote du nez adjoint d'une petite touche résineuse de pin. Une infusion de houblon en canette, une merveille d'ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deepeary (101) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO BB 22.03.2015. Clear orange amber colour with off white head. Smells malty, floral, toasted malt, orange rind, bread. Same notes come through on the taste. Nice bitter finish. Decent, but I was expecting better. Maybe need a fresher beer.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle, 7.2%. Dry wine and grapefruit aroma. Hazy amber colour. Big semi-stable off-white head. The flavour starts off bitter and creamy. Gets more caramelly towards the end, and has a nice floral aroma hop. Good clean bitterness.

Very good overall. Dryish mouth after. Very rich hops giving a delicious aroma and flavour. Amber hazy colour, big white head. Absolutely delicioius.
