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.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Really this is quite nice. Fresh hop flavors balanced quite nicely with maltiness. The flavor of the hops presents while drinking but politely subsides after you’re done and doesn’t coat the palate with a hoppy residue. Malt is not too sweet but not to dry neither. Serving: Bottle

Zlotta (4135) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2018
Sampled from tap at 'Holy Craft Beer Bar'. A little hazy, dark amber with an off-white head. Sweetish, very resiny, moderately fruity aroma of lots of pine, orange jam, some mango and a touch of caramel. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, fairly resiny and slightly fruity taste of massive pine, orange jam, mango and some caramel, followed by a medium long, rather bitter, fairly resiny and dry finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. So prominent on the Centennial, nice showcase IPA, great if you like heavy, resiny IPA's.

APARIENCIA: Color ámbar oscuro, espuma fina compactada color perla, poca carbonatación. OLFATO: Notas cítricas, de toronja, a madera y resina de Pino, dulce caramelo. GUSTO: Dulce al inicio y final amargo, la intensidad del amargor se siente más en los sig. Tragos, final aceitoso y resinoso, un amargor final que recuerda al albedo de la naranja, el alcohol hace presencia de forma sutil. NOTA FINAL: Embotellada el 13 de Febrero del 2017, después de casi 11 meses, se nota que se perdió algo de intensidad del lúpulo, aun así es muy agradable, Una buena IPA, donde el dulzor, amargor y alcohol se encuentra bastante equilibrado, buena retención de espuma muy recomendable, preferentemente consumir lo mas fresca posible.

I use the Beer Buddy app to discover, catalog and rate beers. I used to love this app BEFORE the latest update that forces you to login and even more annoying is you are now forced to write a MINIMUM 75 CHARACTER COMMENT in order to save and upload a beer rating. In most cases I simply don't have 75 characters of comments, thus this canned response. My apologies to all beer lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper orange with a white head. Pine, caramel malt, lightly floral. Medium bodied. Finish has decent pine bitterness with a good hunk of caramel. Nice, classic IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 From the 12 fl. is. bottle that was bottled 11/17/17. Attractive clear orange-amber appearance with foamy off-white head. Inviting orange fruitiness on the nose with a sweet sourdough bread note. Medium or so body. The taste is a lovely orange or tangerine fruitiness with a moderate bitterness to finish. Tasty.

Floral, pine notes, beautiful copper coloured and a soft light tan head. Flavour is pine, caramel, malt. Good, but not that good.

Wow, a very deep and intense IPA this one. You can tell by the beautiful colour already, almost dark copper amber. No aroma to speak of, but the taste is majestic, the right sort of complex malty and caramel-like flavour that the better American IPAs have. One of the better ones for sure this.
