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.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass. The color is a hazy Orange with yellowish highlights. There is a finger and a half of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is earthy hops with a spicy pine aroma on the edges. There is a slight dankness here in the nose. The taste has a nice sweetness at first with a citrus flavor that is mixed with tangerine and a slight hint of cherry. the bitterness comes out toward the back of this beer and pushed forward till there is bitterness building as it finishes. The feel of this beer is lighter then most IPAs and is pretty drinkable. This beer is quite refreshing and a pleasure going down.

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.

danielecamo (546) - 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 (2267) - 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 (249) - 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.
