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 heads floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ales sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

porterhouse's rating

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 10, 2012
(Bottle) Hazy medium-gold/amber. Off white head forms sticky, sloppy lacing. Aroma of fruit, citrus, touch of pine, light caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel medium-full, perhaps a tad thin, slightly pebbly. Flavor of citrus, light pine over a decent caramel-vanilla malt base. Lingering bitter finish. Very excited to see Founders here in ME after years of getting their stuff either by trade or in MA.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2016
- trbes Bernstein mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Mandarine, Pfirsich, Maracuja, grner Apfel, Honig, Malz und Harz - angenehm zurckhaltende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist sofort gepgt von einer ausgesprochen malzigen Hopfenbitternis - Pinie und Harz gesellen sich im Mittelteil relativ gleichberechtig hinzu - hier htte ich mir vielleicht analog zu den beschriebenen Aromen eine Spur mehr Fruchtigkeit gewnscht - erst im Abgang wird dieser Fruchtwunsch in Form von einem leichten Melonen geschmack erfllt Fazit: Rundes bzw. relativ malziges IPA

M_Sack (637) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2016
Tap @ Keg & Brew. Orange/gold with creamy coloured head. Floral and citrus aromas, backed up by some resinous pine and sweet malts. Perfect level of bitterness (medium), underpinned by a noticeable caramel malt sweetness. A great example of an IPA. I had this back to back with the Founders Azacca IPA, which pipped it by 0.1.

16/20 really nice IPA, citrus zing, hint of bitterness, big taste, good depth of flavour and an alcohol kick. What's not to like? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mutz (957) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2016
Flesje @ brouwersplaats Venlo. Goud/oranje kleur, plakkerig kraagje. Aroma vabn citrusfruit en bloemen, smaak is idem, met een moutige achtergrond. Vrij zoet voor een IPA. Smaak en aroma zijn heel subtiel en dat mocht van mij wel anders.

AntonyWilson (192) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 18, 2016
355ml Bottle: Pours a dark amber with minimal off-white head, some lacing. Aroma of caramel, pine and stewed fruit. Beautiful resinous bite from the hops with a well balanced malt backbone. Some citrus notes from the hops as well. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a great beer.
