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.

Scipio's rating

Scipio (1185) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a clear orangish red with a medium white head. The aroma is a healthy balance of malts and hops. Caramel, pine, grapefruit, and honey. The taste moves towards a more traditional IPA. Heavy pine, grapefruit, along with caramel malt. There is a pretty good hoppy bite to this one. Dry, with a pine aftertaste. Medium bodied, with a sticky texture. This feels like a standard IPA. Not bad.

Dark brown with a beige head on pouring. Caramel and apricot with a black pepper aftertaste. Not as hoppy as I'd hoped, but is very easy drinking!

shawnmurphy (585) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2017
12-ounce can pours mostly clear orange-amber with small creamy off-white head and lacing. Aroma: floral, citrus, caramel. Flavor: malt-forward (caramel, brown sugar) with dried apricots, candied blood oranges, black pepper and pine resins. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied.

dunklermessias (293) - GERMANY - OCT 12, 2017
355 ml bottle. Pours with a hazy, dark amber color and a nice off-white head. Nose is overripe fruits, slightly decaying, citric hops and resinious aroma. Taste is fruity and sweet with a nice bitter finish. Good one!

3.4
Ritzn (1709) - GERMANY - OCT 11, 2017
Mahagoni with medium light brown head. Aroma is intense forest, resin, dark honey, grapes, distant velvety notes. Taste is full bodied resinous malt, rather harsh and chewy. Some light sour fresh hoppy accents though (melisse?). Heavy but still drinkable. Maybe still a bit too much for me.

harpo40 (35) - Eastham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 10, 2017
Nice caramel color and some citrus on the nose. Tastes include malt and citrus hops. Some grapefruit bitterness on the finish, but well-balanced to make a refreshing and easy-to-drink beer.

alteregoo (1684) - Kalisz, POLAND - OCT 10, 2017
Piana dość gruba, obfita, nietrwała. Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. W zapachu rozczarowanie - trochę cytrusów i żywicy w połączeniu z karmelem i miodem, do tego lekka gotowana kukurydza. Smak adekwatny, półsłodki, słodowy, z lekkim DMSem i niedużą, grejpfrutowo żywiczną goryczką. Średnie wysycenie, ciężkie i rozgrzewające w odczuciu.
No ewidentnie piwo jest utlenione w nieprzyjemny sposób, do tego DMS i bardziej słodowe, karmelkowe podejście jak w East Coast IPA.

rami_pl (4220) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 9, 2017
Rami Rami is drinking a Centennial IPA by Founders Brewing Co. at Konstruktorska Business Center Sie utlenilo sie jakims cudem w tej puszce (best by 06.04.2018) a do tego ma niefajna, nieco apteczna goryczke dluga. Owocowosci malo. Ok--
Rami Rami: Wyszlo takie miodowo-krzaczasto-lekkotropikalno-karmelowe (kolejnosc nieprzypadkowa).
Rami Rami: w ogole podejrzany ten kolor, taka slaba herbata...

Cokemonkey11 (1050) - - OCT 8, 2017
Can. Medium light caramel with a thin froth. Scent is medium dense notes of licorice and caramel. Vanilla. Plums. Taste is very intense notes from cask. Wood. Resin. Very dry. A bit of bubblegum properties. The hops here are relaxed and early. Excellent.

3.8
Ronritter (875) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2017
12 oz can pour is dark gold with frothy off white head aroma and taste is sweet malts with grass and light citrus light pine on finish

4.1
StoneBeardCo (2) - Lindenhurst, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2017 does not count
Poured bottle into glass then drank. Founders never seems to fail me. This high alcohol beer has a great hoppy, bitter taste that reminds you what the IPA is all about. A nice amber color. I prefer this one over their All Day IPA.
