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.

porterhouse's rating

3.7
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.

HourGlass13 (845) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Pours up a medium amber color sporting a tan head. Floral and malty aroma. Laid back hop balance with a sweet caramel malt body and slight bitter finish. Definitely a distinctive take on the style that is different from either of the coastal versions.

freekyp (2192) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Great floral nose with some peppery spice. Earthy hop bill. Not very rindy. Pours light amber. Nice mild caramel malt backbone. Very clean.

This beer was good enough it made me want to find the brew master and give him a noogie on his head and say "at'a boy". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonmac (1201) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2017
12oz bottle purchased at Mount Royal in Duluth. Pint glass. Slightly more of an amber and deep orange hue with an off white head. Lacing is strong. Malty and caramel on the nose with traditional pine notes. Taste carries the aromatic characteristics through with a malt forward approach. Hops are present with a little citrus and pine. Finish leans on the hop elements. Decent if unspectacular IPA.

PugUglyBrewer (606) - - JUN 11, 2017
Clean, dark amber color with a dense head of creamy off-white foam. Very malty upfront with enough on the hop end to balance it out. A good IPA no doubt but in terms of personal preferences my bias leads me out of enjoying this one completely. I’m find more appeal in an IPA that lets the Hops shine through instead of land at a stalemate with the grain bill.

3.8
Tinaccio (326) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 11, 2017
335 ml can from Kill The Cat, Brick Lane, London, UK. It pours orange/amber, with a nice, frothy, white head. Aroma is pine, herbs, malts, orange, tangerine, light notes of caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium to full, carbonation is average. Overall lovely.

3.8
YantarCoast (1334) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 8, 2017
355ml bottle from Beerometr in Moscow. Pours a beautiful hazy amber with large white head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is caramel, malt, pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, citrus, floral hops, caramel. Really nice.

3.6
Hexenhetfield (27) - MEXICO - JUN 5, 2017
El aroma es bueno, seminario robusta, no es lo que puedo esperar de una IPA, no hay tanto aromas resinozos, estoy tan acostumbrado a las IPAs de San Diego o Tijuana que siempre las comparo con las demás que no son de ahí

3.7
MelvinKalksma (1506) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Have to say I miss a lot of pine flavour for a single hop centennial IPA. The malts are the most dominant flavour here, such a shame. Great appearance and palate however.

I get that it has been judged well and has strong reviews; but I just don't think the taste this leaves on the palette was all that great. Kinda made me want to finish and switch to a different beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
