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.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2014
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.

Kauge (248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Drink Shop in Tallinn (around € 3,50). BB 06-06-2015. Pours a rather dark and hazy amber colour with a big off-white head. Retains and laces nicely. Nose is pine resin, orange, marzipan, musk, caramel, floral, kind of salty even... Taste very bitter but well covered by malty sweetness, refreshingly juicy, piney-resinous, musky-caramelly. Body medium, palate oily, carbonation crisp but not at all overwhelming. When that flattens, gets a bit watery. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness coated in juicy sweetness. Very decent, well-rounded brew. Wish they had this instead of or together with the ubiquitous Punk IPA in bars I frequent... not that sessioning this 7,2% beer is a good idea but still...

Excellent IPA from a great Michigan brewery. Nice hops and good alcohol content. Easy sipper while watching college football.
