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.

omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Bottled ay Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy amber, brief head. Peachy soapy hop aroma,. Sweet and compact with clean mouthfeel. The peachy, soapy hops together with overt sweetness and clean, somewhat syrupy malt forms an immense bitterness that gets slight inky edges. While it contains loads of pleasnt flavours it’s too sweet and unbalanced to live up to my high expectations on this brewer.

Hazy amber beer. Soft white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Very moderate carbonation. Immediate fresh grapefruit, a little bit metallic, not too bitter. A brief sweet orange note near the finish. Subtle caramel malt base. Pretty drinkable IPA is nothing out of the ordinary.

Beautiful color, amber, hazy, with a generous head and nice fine perlage. The aroma is nice, delicate, fruity (apricots), with light toffee, cookies, vanilla. Very good biscuity toffee flavor, with clear lemon and lemongrass feeling, ending in a well hopped and fruity final, where there are bitter oranges and a shade of chamomile; the body is on the dry side; the final is well bitter. Fresh is excellent!
I wanted to give another chance to this beer, and that was a good choice!

65 IBU

Beautiful amber color, hazy; big head. The aroma is well hoppy, not much peristent. Medium body strength, strong toffee flavor that doesn’t have a chance to show any smooth or sweet side because immediately aggressed by an extreme hopping; the bitterness increases even more towards the final, turning into an oily and dry hop feeling. Extreme, but not enough sweet or fruity for being my favorite; no feather here, just the sword.
