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.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, - JUL 1, 2014
Splendid IPA showing great length and bitterness. Peachy colour, enduring head. Lovely ripe aroma - passionfruit, pink grapefruit, tinned peaches with some grainy malt notes. Medium-bodied and gently carbonated. Taste: peaches, lemongrass, grass, slight herbal note, pine and soft toffee. Not a lot to be said because this is such a beautifully put together package. (355ml bottle from Leura Cellars)

35.5cl bottle. Clear dark orangish colour with a small thin off-white head. Citrus, fruity and pine in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is bitter with medium sweet notes. Very smooth though. Overall, a very good beer.

Pours caramel copper. Beautiful dank grapefruit, passionfruit and mango nose. Flavour is similarly impressive and almost sessionable. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from craft and dough, sheffield. Deep orange with a lacy off white head. Aroma is floral and malty, with wood resin and a bit of whisky woody notes. Taste is bitter and savoury, long lasting as well. Prickly carbonation and a thin/medium body. Very nice.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear dark orange pour. Off-white foam on top. Lace. Pleasant earthy citrus flavors. Syrupy caramel toffee malts. Plums and prunes. Tangerine peels. Clear sugar candy toys. Disparate notes of pimento, cocoa beans, black cherries, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots and gummy bears. Not your usual IPA.

Xavalias (245) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2015
355 mL can from Danish supermarket. Pours nearly clear orange with a medium off-white head. Leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Lots of fresh hops in the aroma, with citrus, orange especially, and a bit floral. Some malts as well. The taste is moderate to high bitter, moderate sweet. Smooth palate, decent and pleasant, but lacks any sort of complexity.

Wife picked up a six pack while in Grand Rapids for work. I am glad she did. Pours a nice deep orange with a pleasant aroma. Lots going on with the flavor. It was hints of citrus, pine and bread. IPAs have grown on me over the years and I would say this a very good example of the style.
