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.

Drank in tulip beer glass poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma- lots of citrus with notes of hop. Appearance- golden orange grapefruit color. Light head and carbonation. Taste- has a major lemon kick. More than other ipas. Very drinkable and tasty. Palate- hop explosion with a citrus kick. Very nice. Overall- another great IPA. Im on a streak. Very enjoyable.

Picked this up from Chip’s in Kill Devil Hills, NC while on vacation. Bottle date is 9/3/15 so it is fresh. Pours a clear amber with lots of head. Aroma is floral and maybe a hint of pine with a nice amount of an almost lightly candied sweetness. Reminds me a lot of Two Hearted but that is to be expected with Centennial hops. Taste is sweet but with a nice bitterness and overall this beer is well balanced. Medium bodied with a dry finish. I would buy this if it was available where I lived.

__Rb81 (383) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle at home (bottled 04/13/2015). Pours a clear to light hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma of fruity hops and sweet malts, orange, peach, caramel. Taste is sweet fruity followed by hoppy bitterness, malts, caramel, orange, dry, bitter ending, bit resiny. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Not bad.

Somewhat amber appearance with no head. Complex tastes of caramel malt, spruce, hops, alcohol, citrus and grass. Medium to full bodied, with fair amount of carbonation, followed by a long aftertaste of spruce

brandon31g (18) - HONG KONG - SEP 20, 2015
Pours amber body with tiny off-white head. Its aroma reveals typical hoppy IPA style: grapefruit, mandarin and a touch of spices. The taste starts with malty caramel, but immediately covered by bitter citrus peels and grassy flavour. It owns high bitterness, which can be evidently shown in the finishing.

Adquirida en Whole Foods, LES, New York. Tonalidad amarronada, poco espumosa. Aroma balanceado en donde predominan las frutas tropicales. Una IPA suave, delicada y muy agradable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Translucent orange/gold hue with a mid sized white head. Pungent aroma containing notes of spruce, grapefruit, honey, caramel, and grass. Mid bodied with a smooth texture. Caramel, honey, and malt backbone with relatively potent grapefruit, grass, and hops up front during the finish. Nice.
