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.

Pours a golden amber color with a light head. Aroma of citrus, pine and pineapple. Grapefruit and citrus bitter hop flavor upfront with malty undertones. Nice dry bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a great IPA from Founders, well balanced and tasty.

On tap. Pours hazy copper, creamy off-white sticky head. Aroma of pine, fig, earth, grass, pineapple, biscuit and grapefruit rind. Taste of same. Very hop - forward but with great biscuit and slightly caramel malts.

Pours a deep amber with minimal head. Nose is first and foremost floral. It’s cut with lots of citrus: orange, mango, and pineapple are all present. Smells sweet. Taste isn’t nearly as sweet as the nose. It’s bready malt forward, with pine and caramel. Finish is resin. It goes down smooth with just enough carbonation. Really nice.

LazyPyro (530) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear amber with a one finger off white head. Aroma: piney resin, floral, hoppy, citrus, malty. Taste: similar to the aroma, very piney, hoppy, citrus, also a good amount of malt though. Finish is moderately bitter, not as strong as I was expecting. Smooth.

Punertavankuparinen läpikuultava olut melko runsaalla, mutta aika nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu karamellinen ja hedelmäinen, varsinkin greippinen. Maku vahvan greippinen karamellisella häivähdyksellä. Hieman pihkainen ja keskivertioa makeampi ipa. Pitkä greippisen katkera jälkimaku. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma.

0.33 draft.
A hazy, very dark amber color with a small, white head. Aroma of pines, an abundance of citruses, and above all flowers. Taste is also floral, piney, citric, resin, very hoppy but also esthery - herbs appear with time. A medium body, a slick/oily texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is long and floral as hell. Overall this must be the most floral beer I have ever had; it’s really well-made and appealingly pleasant - my full recommendation.

Gutes IPA. Leider etwas muffig, aber ansonsten lecker fruchtig. Exotische Früchte und Dominante Hopfenbittere.

the centennial pours into a golden red body with an off white head. aroma is not strong but rather a mild representation of a beer that others have done stronger-not to say that it’s bad, just not as potent. when it comes down the the taste i get a powerful flavor of caramel followed by the cool down of licorice. pleasant sipping.

Jultsu (714) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2016
BBE 28/07/16. Tumman kuparinen, semisamea, ok viipyvä vaahto. Hyökkäävän kirpeä suutuntuma, suussa sulava, vahva, täyteläinen, hyvä.
