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.

Not hoppy enough but this beer has some body like the other Founders I have tasted before this isn’t bad but I don’t know maybe it’s because I was born in Ohio and this brew is made in Michigan but I’ll give it another try.

Acobreado com espuma definida e persistente. Aromas de caramelo e fruta. Ótima carbonatação, boa acidez. Ataque doce persistente caminhando para um amargor leve. Seca um pouco a boca querendo mais goles. Corpo médio.

What a find....$7.99 a 6-pack in a mix and match bin. On my way back to grab the rest. This is by far the best beer I have ever had, even trumps Sculpin.

Halvklar koppar/guld färgad med beige skumkrona. Doften är bra av både malt och humle. Karamell, blommor, gräs, grapefrukt, citrus. Smak fortsätter i samma anda inkl sötma. Lite väl maltig i min smak. Bra beska! Burk från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smalle (142) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma: very "American". Massive citrus and floral aroma, resin. Taste: sweet and fruity at first, more balanced than the nose. Very very fruity. Bitter and dry finish. Nice!

Outlaw_Si (16) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Nice, bitter AIPA. Smooth malts balancing a nice hoppy aroma and taste. Citrus, pine, resin and floral notes. Very well balanced beer but nothing outstanding for me. Would have enjoyed more if the hops came a little more forward but could be the age of the bottle.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a pokel glass. A: Huuuge bubbled fluffy beige head when poured. Maximum retention since it "never" disappears completely leaving many many lacings aroung... Color is orange and cloudy (IPA style) S: A perfect bouquet of hops. Very grassy and refreshing. An American beer (100%). Some caramel malts but again, basically hops. T: Follows the nose: Caramel malts and hops. Once again, absolutely grassy and refreshing. Dry as it should be. Its 65 IBUs guarantee a pleasant, mild but considerable bitterness M: Refreshing light body. Delicious bitter hoppy end O: God save the American micro hoppy beers, they are just great! :) [ BA Review @ 12/17/2011 ]

Bottle to glass, 1/2" head. Creamy texture, citrus notes with a mild finish. Much prefer this to the All Day IPA.

wihlan (286) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2014
Burk från systemet - när man knäcker burken så slår humledoften emot en, härligt fruktig arom. Guldig i färgen med en vit skumkrona. Fin maltigsötma men som går över i en tydlig beska.
