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 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.

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.

Bottle. Man this is actually one of the better IPAs I have had lately and I have had a lot. The aroma is the usual IPA smell with the grapefruit, pine etc. The taste is what sets it apart. It has all the IPA taste without burying the malt. It has a certain amount of sweetness to go with the bitter. Complex and tasty.

The Centennial hops are very citrus like in the aroma and flavor, not as assertive in the bitterness as I expected.

Bottle from Bottledog at home alone. London is having a heatwave the past few days. This beer helped me cool down for sure. Proper good solid IPA. Thoroughly enjoyed :P
