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.

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.

Dit bier is geweldig ! Ruikt erg lekker, bitterzoet. Heeft een hele mooie volle schuimkraag en heeft een lekker bittere smaakt die niet overheerst. Is verkrijgbaar in blik en fles, ik prefereer op fles. Op blik is het wel goedkoper alhoewel 2,50€ niet duur is als je het vergelijkt met de overdreven prijzen de nederlandse brouwers rekenen.

luisfelizola (50) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 22, 2014
Acobreado com espuma definida e persistente. Aromas de caramelo e fruta. Ótima carbonatação, boa acidez. Ataque doce persistente caminhando para um amargor leve. Seca um pouco a boca querendo mais goles. Corpo médio.

What a find....$7.99 a 6-pack in a mix and match bin. On my way back to grab the rest. This is by far the best beer I have ever had, even trumps Sculpin.

Halvklar koppar/guld färgad med beige skumkrona. Doften är bra av både malt och humle. Karamell, blommor, gräs, grapefrukt, citrus. Smak fortsätter i samma anda inkl sötma. Lite väl maltig i min smak. Bra beska! Burk från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smalle (142) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma: very "American". Massive citrus and floral aroma, resin. Taste: sweet and fruity at first, more balanced than the nose. Very very fruity. Bitter and dry finish. Nice!

Nice, bitter AIPA. Smooth malts balancing a nice hoppy aroma and taste. Citrus, pine, resin and floral notes. Very well balanced beer but nothing outstanding for me. Would have enjoyed more if the hops came a little more forward but could be the age of the bottle.

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a pokel glass. A: Huuuge bubbled fluffy beige head when poured. Maximum retention since it "never" disappears completely leaving many many lacings aroung... Color is orange and cloudy (IPA style) S: A perfect bouquet of hops. Very grassy and refreshing. An American beer (100%). Some caramel malts but again, basically hops. T: Follows the nose: Caramel malts and hops. Once again, absolutely grassy and refreshing. Dry as it should be. Its 65 IBUs guarantee a pleasant, mild but considerable bitterness M: Refreshing light body. Delicious bitter hoppy end O: God save the American micro hoppy beers, they are just great! :) [ BA Review @ 12/17/2011 ]

Bottle to glass, 1/2" head. Creamy texture, citrus notes with a mild finish. Much prefer this to the All Day IPA.
