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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear deep orange gold with well retained and decent off white head. Big citrus aromas, light grainy malt characters with a hint of caramel and toast. Grapefruit and lemon citrus aromas dominate. Medium light body, big citrus character, lemon and grapefruit dominate the palate, some malt caramel nutty graininess, but the hops lingering on and are acidic, cutting through the malt biscuit character well through the finish.

Clear orange, off-white lacing, lasting foam head. Great hoppy aroma, floral noes. Indeed the flowers explode in taste, citrus notes and great bitterness. Lasting taste. (Chicago 201510)

ByTheBeer (6) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2015 does not count
Poured from can, a month from best before. Slightly hazy caramel-orange colour, lightly carbonated, with a light, quickly diminishing white head with lacings of caramel. Aroma is richly hoppy, floral and sweet, with caramel aromas and subtle pine and biscuit notes. Medium bodied, with prominent floral hops giving way to a smooth, solid malt base. Finish is medium to strong bodied, slightly dry with flavours of caramel and pine. There is bitterness throughout but not overly so, and it is nicely balanced and flavoursome throughout.

GSH1976 (233) - Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Picked this up from Chip’s in Kill Devil Hills, NC while on vacation. Bottle date is 9/3/15 so it is fresh. Pours a clear amber with lots of head. Aroma is floral and maybe a hint of pine with a nice amount of an almost lightly candied sweetness. Reminds me a lot of Two Hearted but that is to be expected with Centennial hops. Taste is sweet but with a nice bitterness and overall this beer is well balanced. Medium bodied with a dry finish. I would buy this if it was available where I lived.
