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.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 10, 2012
(Bottle) Hazy medium-gold/amber. Off white head forms sticky, sloppy lacing. Aroma of fruit, citrus, touch of pine, light caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel medium-full, perhaps a tad thin, slightly pebbly. Flavor of citrus, light pine over a decent caramel-vanilla malt base. Lingering bitter finish. Very excited to see Founders here in ME after years of getting their stuff either by trade or in MA.

Draft. Reddish-copper color with thin off-white head and substantial lacing. Mild hop aroma. Citrus (orange and grapefruit) upfront with earthy malt backbone. Body is a bit thinner than expected. Well-balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GnarlyGnome (756) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Solid tasty, piney IPA. Nothing crazy... just a good, well balanced west coast style IPA. Tasty.

Ingevara (841) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2015
Creamy head, dark orange. Pineforrest smell, and a more balanced hoppiness than most americans. Bitterness is well designed. Refreshing and easy drink. A middle-of-the-road IPA at its best.

Moebbels (432) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2015
A clear dark orange body with a very light brown head that laces nicely. Nose has fairly mild notes of citrus fruits, resin and caramel. Taste is sweet at first vut is quickly followed by a firm bitterness that leads to a lingering quite dry finish. Medium caebonation and light, oily palate. Quite nice and well balanced but the nose feels a bit muted.

growler6 (46) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 The malt is not overdone and really blends well with the bitter orange. Very fruity with an abrupt finish. Fantastic.

Moolesen (312) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle 35,5cl. Orange hazy cloudy with a white head. Nice recognizable centennial hop in the nose, citrus, pine tree accomplised with some malt. Very nice flavour, not too bitter but really nice. Medium bitter length.
