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.

Bottle. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma with mild caramel and toast background. Clear amber-ruby with lots of carbonation up to a lasting, thick white head. Very balanced with a strong malt presence and well-rounded hop character providing both bitterness and a mild pine and orange peel flavor. Very full-bodied.

Very good IPA, with solid aroma and great hoppy flavor. Not too much of a blunt assault of hops either, but more complex. Very drinkable.

Zarkam (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2015
355ml bottle from Tartu, hazy orange colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of hay and caramel with some bread and heavy hops with notes of grapefruit, flowers, herbs and pepper with a hint of fruitiness form yeast. Taste is initially slightly sweet and moderately bitter, turning into a heavily bitter long finish with a heavily astigent feel. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Very leasant and complex IPA with enough malt to back up the generous amount of hops.

Cooper with a medium white head. Aroma is caramel, molasses, passion fruit and orange, witn some floral notes. Taste is caramel, yellow fruits, pine, citric and some unbalanced alcoholic notes. Bitter aftertaste (resinous). I expected more for this one...

danielecamo (549) - ITALY - JAN 24, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore arancio brillante, limpida, schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di frutta, fiori di campo e caramello. Al palato corpo medio, gasatura non eccessvia. Sentori di caramello molto dolci, anche troppo, luppolatura che regala note di marmellata di frutta, non molto eleganti ed un finale secco.

chinchill (2269) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 16, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. (from notes) A: Clear amber with a smallish off-white head. Despite the size, the head has good retention and leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Aroma: very fruity and a bit floral with hints of cotton candy. Smells like it will be sweet but I suspect not. T - There is a lot of sweetness here, most noticable when the beer first hits the front of the tongue, but then a good hop hit takes over turning the flavor more piney and much more bitter. I found the bitterness, however, under control, thanks to the malt sweetness. Plenty of flavor, including hints of orange peel and red grapefruit. Presents a nice dynamic palette. M - Full for style. Smooth but with light carbonation tingle and a very slight roughness from the hops or alcohol. O - An outstanding IPA, although a single hop variety, even if Centennial hops, is not my ideal formulation.

Hopmaestro (252) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Aroma is a little supressed in this one, but you get notes of peaches, grapefruit and malt. The flavor is sweet oranges and caramelly malts. I actually thought this one would have a big hop-sting, so at first I was disappointed, but after having a bunch of these, I realized how good it is. It is indeed a well balanced and solid IPA that should always be in your stash.

Foffern (1327) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy, amber colour with a light beige head. Fruity hops in the aroma along with pine, apricot and some caramel and catpiss. The flavour has more pine, grass, caramel and dried fruit. A little dry in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a solid, balanced bitterness. A rich, well-balanced and hoppy IPA.
