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.

12oz bottle poured into nonic. Hazy orange liquid with a two finger eggshell head. Some lacing. Aroma is caramel, muted citrus fruit, grass, and bready malt. Flavor is caramel sweetness and some grapefruit flesh and peel, bread, and pine hop resin. I expected a more pronounced hop profile based on other reviews. I’ll chalk it up to the fact that this beer was bottled in September and I drank it in February. Medium body, slick but resinous texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish. I’ll try a fresher one and see if it helps.

Pours amber-orange with a moderate frothy white head. Smells strongly of fresh pine hops. Taste is sweet, faintly spicy, with a little mild pleasant bitterness that hangs around.

Interesting. A lot of big talk on the can. I didn't feel it really lived up to it. It was extremely hoppy and aromatic, almost too much, and tasted like a much stronger beer than it was. It was however significantly improved when poured into a tulip glass, which smoothed it a lot. Overall, quite good but not an amazing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.355 l bottle that poured hazy copper body with medium sized head. Quite malty aroma, sugar, caramel, biscuit, yeasty, then herbal and orange hoppy. Flavor was quite bitter, strong herbal, pine and grapefruit hops with biscuit and caramel malt which wasn’t shy either. I like IPAs that way. Full bodied with long bittersweet, smooth finish. A very nice, tasty and extremely balanced IPA.

Pretty good IPA. Excellent hop pressence, in aroma and in taste. Pretty dry and sweet. Overall, a good example of the genre.

35cl bottle. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Grapefruit, lemon zest, a hint of pine and some caramel, behind a harsh green hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a soft-ish texture and a bitter-sweet caramel and hops aftertaste.
