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.

12 oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a thick foamy head. Excellent lacing. Aroma was a pine citrus scent, very grapefruity. Flavor was perfectly hoppy, very bitter, with some pine and citrus notes. Overall an excellent IPA.

Fitting beer for my 100th rating. On draught at beer deluxe hawthorn. Pours clear amber to copper colour with medium white head. Lovely balanced but strong hop aroma of grapefruit, floral aromatics and a touch of pine. Thin slick body with crisp carbonation. Taste is bitter and hopy with a nice crystal malt backing. Finish is clean and crisp.

Flaske 355ml fra Alko Muonio. Mørk aprikosfarget. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. God aroma av frukt & tyggegummi. Smaken er aprikos & plommer. Blir litt (for) tørr & bitter etter hvert. KI=6

stoutnick (534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Golden pour. Aroma is malty hop resin. Taste is sessional resinous bitterness with a very well hidden abv. Lingering malty bitterness. Decent IPA but not a massive fan of the maltier varieties of the style.

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2014
Copper color. Big caramel malty nose with moderate hoppiness. Big caramel malt backbone with pine and citrus notes. Definetely a maltier IPA, but pretty decent take on the style.

RRistow12 (255) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice copper color with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of floral notes, citrus and tropical hops, caramel sweetness. Taste is superbly balanced. Caramel, toffee, brown auger malt backbone give it mild to moderate sweetness with some pine, floral and maybe a hint of citrus hop flavors giving it a clean consistent moderate bitterness. Excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (1199) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2014
355mL bottle Beautiful copper gold body with a good inch of thick white head. Nose offers good quantity of hop & malt; pine needle, biscuit, grapefruit, toasted nuts, woody spice, light caramel. Full bodied, nice weight of malt to it, medium carbonation. Palate kicks off with plenty of biscuity, toasty malt, add a generous dose of tropical fruits, orange & grapefruit, leafy, piney woody spice to the mix, and a firm bitterness on a resiny finish, and you’ve got one damn fine IPA. Yum!

UXO (211) - CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours a pale amber with a short ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, moderate lacing. Nose is bright grassy and floral hops, pineapple, grapefruit, bready caramel malt. Taste starts with light grassy hop, then sweet tropical fruit before the pine resin rounds it out. Medium body with moderate sustained carbonation with a sticky, lingering bitter resin finish. Very pleasant, balanced IPA. Except for the lingering finish, where the bitter takes over (and I don’t mean that negatively), the malt sweetness integrates beautifully with the hop bitter, both in the nose and on the tongue. Neither are overwhelming, and this is hoppy without being a hop bomb. The moderately high ABV is also well-integrated, becoming apparent only most of the way through the pint, as a gentle warming. I’d consider this a highly sessionable ale.
