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 headís floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This aleís sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Cannot believe this IPA is not in the top 5. The combination of dry hopping AND leaving it unflitered has forged the PERFECT..and I again I say to this day PERFECT IPA for me. The dry hopping here produces a nice "gumball" mouthfeel, while the unfiltered floaters root it diametrically to the earth. Wish I didn’t have to trek to Hudson, WI to get it. But I do...and will. Try it for yourself. I know raters here tend to rate higher the higher the ABV. Just remember this is an IPA not a Double IPA.

On draft in NYC. First sip was amazing. Huge hop nose and great hop flavor to match. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I can see why this is the base for judging IPA's, great flavor, the right amount of hops and one of the easiest drinking IPA's going around!

Liquid bread. What more can I say? Everything I look for in an IPA, the cloudy orange color, floral aroma, big but not overpowering hop flavor and a finish that leaves me licking my chops! Iím making nmyself thirsty.

This is an absoutely fantastic IPA! I made the discovery that is the Centennial IPA on draft at the Craft Ale House in Limerick, PA. It was so good, that I went back to the pub the next day and got a growler of it. From start to finish, this beer explodes with flavor and character. The aroma is full of hops, pine, citrus and grapefruit. The body is smooth, balanced and extremely drinkable. The flavors were absoutely outstanding, with a big hoppy note up front a delicious malty backbone. There are subtle hints of bread and caramel in the body to add balance and flavor. Other flavors include dry grapefruits, pine, grass and a little lemon. The head is off-white in color and leaves some nice lacing around the glass. The color of the beer itself is a beautiful and clear copper color. This IPA finishes spicy, hoppy and a little dry, but with some nice sweetness. This is an absoutely outstanding IPA! Itís definitely one of the best that Iíve ever sampled. I need more!

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 A very good, full flavored beer. Rich malts up front, backed by a hops punch and a hint of citrus. In the same class as Victory brews.
