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.

Nice color. Hops, citrus, fruit, and brown sugary malt aroma. Smells like all of the best Ipas smell. Tastes bitter but controlled. Nice balance between the sweet malty starts and nice refreshing hops in the finish. Delicious citrus and sweet molasses and brown sugar notes throughout. A great beer, founders can do no wrong.

I’ve had this a bunch of times and it’s always been phenomenal. Just a perfect IPA. Everything you could expect and want. Super hoppy, super well balance. Just awesome and Founders is just a world class brewery.

Pour is extremely flat. Aroma is citrus and hops. Flatness make it go down smooth. Flavor is pretty much straight bitterness. I’ve had better.

Kosmokrator (477) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2014
Limpido color ramato con fragile cappello di schiuma bianca di medio spessore. Sentori di caramello, luppolo, fiori e un pizzico di frutta solleticano il naso, mentre al palato è amara, resinosa, astringente e abbondantemente luppolata. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, struttura oleoso-setosa, finale lunghissimo e persistente. Una IPA "rocciosa"!

rollerton (28) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2014
A near perfect IPA. Pours nicely and has a very nice dark golden color. Taste is the classic IPA with a hint of toasted malt. The bitterness is well balanced and the taste is magnificent. In short: Perfect!

jinroh (341) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2014
355 ml can from Systembolaget. Pours nice orange with beige/white head that reduces but stays long and leaves nice lacings. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, hop freshness and pine needles. A bit of orange citrus? Taste is full of resins, violently bitter - in addictive way. This one has strong pine character, citrus, lemon peels - but actually quite nicely balanced. Finish is long, full of hops and bitterness. Nice and throughly enjoyable.

berkshirejohn (4477) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. A hazy amber pour with a trace of cream head; fresh woody hop aroma with a touch of tropical fruit; full bodied and with an assertive hoppy taste, with some sweet pineapple fruit; and a zingy, long lasting finish, with some lingering citrus and biscuit. Certainly a good IPA.

thomdett (1) - STUART, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014 does not count
12 oz bottle. Just the hippy taste I hope for in an IPA with a pleasant after taste that sets this apart from others.

NordicV (1138) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2014
Bärnstensfärgad öl med ett stort skum. Arom av citrus, blommighet, karamell och lätt kryddighet. Bra mix av sötare fruktiga, blommiga humletoner och kryddigare, tallbarrslika.

8/26/14. Bottle. Nice citrusy nose. Classic IPA profile. Strong hop mouth but no astringency or lingering bitterness. Medium body to match the ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hantti (17) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Stronger aromas than All Day Ipa. Hoppy, a bit more complex citrus taste. The aroma stays longer in the mouth and feeling is a bit more dry than the easier "brother" of this IPA.
