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.

akoeninger (438) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Foamy head. Pleasant floral aroma that sweetens as it warms. Strong hop flavor, grapefruit, pine. Well balanced sweet malt keeps hops from over powering. Malt comes out more as it warms. This is the quintessential ipa. Centennial hops keeps things crisp, but with some earthyness. Finish never gets too bitter.

ABS (479) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2014
Can from Systembolaget. Pours amber with lots of frothy, very slightly orange head. Medium body and carbonation. Some alcohol warmth. Pine, grapefruit, lemon, some peppermint and lemongrass flavour. A bit above average amount of bitterness for an IPA. Actually some sweetness in this as well.

"thanks Cory - a great ipa. lower ibus, but still manages a wonderful grapefruit and floral aroma and full hop flavor. balanced with some sweeter malts. deeelicious. this just goes to show an ipa doesn’t HAVE to be a hop bomb to be vibrant, aromatic, and tasty...not that there’s anything wrong with that!"

olsvammel (3081) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
Can from Systembolaget. I’m surprised I haven’t rated this as I’ve had probably 20 cans in the last 4 months. Very hoppy smell with citrus, grape and pine. Similar taste. Strong bitterness but not harsh. Allot of hops in this.

Bottle. Copper amber pour with a tall dense tan head. Tropical fruit aroma, some caramel and floral hop notes. Great taste of sweet caramel malt, pine and floral hops to round it out. Medium body.

orange_3084 (107) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2014
Fitting beer for my 100th rating. On draught at beer deluxe hawthorn. Pours clear amber to copper colour with medium white head. Lovely balanced but strong hop aroma of grapefruit, floral aromatics and a touch of pine. Thin slick body with crisp carbonation. Taste is bitter and hopy with a nice crystal malt backing. Finish is clean and crisp.

355 ml can. Hazy amber with off white head. Smell is hoppy floral and pine with bitter citrus zest. Taste is bitter citrus, grapefruit, pine and floral hoppy with balancing malt sweetness that has dried fruit and dark fruit and bread. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation.

Flaske 355ml fra Alko Muonio. Mørk aprikosfarget. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. God aroma av frukt & tyggegummi. Smaken er aprikos & plommer. Blir litt (for) tørr & bitter etter hvert. KI=6

12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Nice balance of hops and a little fruity.

stoutnick (542) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Golden pour. Aroma is malty hop resin. Taste is sessional resinous bitterness with a very well hidden abv. Lingering malty bitterness. Decent IPA but not a massive fan of the maltier varieties of the style.
