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.

Pours a cloudy dark orange with little specks everywhere. Nice orange head. Aroma of a very floral hops and...grass? Taste is a nice bitter with somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall a very unique IPA. I have found myself going back to this one often.

Sarlacc83 (1152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2015
Tap at Belmont Station for CBC A: Light amber, thin white head, not much lacing. N: Pineapple, grapefruit, toffee, orange peel, earth, peppercorn, some bubblegum, and grass. T: Sweet and malty with a backing bitterness. M: Medium body, no alcohol presence, resins, creamy carbonation. O: A solid IPA from Founders with a solid balance of citrus and earthy characteristics. I prefer RPM, but this is a nice showing.

MarkoNm (1088) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 13, 2015
Pours a hazy, darker amber color, topped with lots of cream colored creamy head with decent retention. Malty aroma, caramel and biscuity, some resin perhaps. In the back some fruity notes. Taste is sweet and fruity, slightly spicy in the finish with moderate bitterness. Lasting herbal aftertaste.

hohops (460) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Appearance is a hazy, light amber with a one-finger cream head. Aroma- lots of creamy malt, orange peel, hoppy, caramel, lemon hints, tangerine, grapefruit. Taste- bitter hops, orange and grapefruit, mango, lime hints, a good malt presence which makes it a bit creamy, hoppy, bitter and fairly short finish. Very nice IPA.

adasko (758) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 6, 2015
Awesome, sweet aroma of very mature mango, pineapple and a bit of strawberries. Itís bright amber color beer, clear, with one finger white head. The power of this beer is definitely bitterness. From the beginning - you can feel it from the very first beginning of first sip. But itís not brutal, itís not annoying bitterness. Itís smooth and noble. There is no balance in this beer, there is no sweetness. Itís just bitter all the time, great grapefruity bitterness. In the end itís even quite big one, but very short. Itís nicely carbonated. Itís an awesome west coast style IPA.

Dark golden red colour with white - yellow head. Aroma is extremely herbal-citrus with malt notes. Taste is citrus, with fruits and caramel notes. Very good example of IPA.

Jabah (138) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2015
Sort of in between East Coast and West Coast here. Medium malt with a semi-clear orange to gold/amber appearance. Centennial hops tones down the citrus/pine a bit. Smooth and very drinkable. I will sample this one again for sure.

annunz123 (912) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Nice, balanced aroma, with biscuit malt, caramel, and fruity hops. Surprisingly malty caramel flavor, with some citrus and flowery hops in the finish. Not an over the top hoppy IPA, but still very good.

Can at home. Hazy orange, big eggshell head. Stale hop aroma, caramalt, some dusty tropical fruits. Medium carbonation. Barley sugar flavour, raspy bitterness, some stale grapefruit hop character in the middle. Clearly past its best, but can only rate whatís in the glass...
