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.

Cannot believe this IPA is not in the top 5. The combination of dry hopping AND leaving it unflitered has forged the PERFECT..and I again I say to this day PERFECT IPA for me. The dry hopping here produces a nice "gumball" mouthfeel, while the unfiltered floaters root it diametrically to the earth. Wish I didn’t have to trek to Hudson, WI to get it. But I do...and will. Try it for yourself. I know raters here tend to rate higher the higher the ABV. Just remember this is an IPA not a Double IPA.

Bottle. Sweet, ripe fruit (tropical and other), floral hints, resin, light malty. It becomes citrusy in the flavour, thick, oily, sweet and bitter. Smooth, soft mouthfeel, red fruity aftertaste. Excellent.

On tap at Brewski Bar. Pours amber. Delicious floral hoppy aroma. Sweet malty taste with great hoppy bitterness balance and depth throughout. Some fruity and pine resin characteristics also. Excellent IPA.

12oz. bottle. A very clean, very straightforward IPA with a floral/citrus hop profile from the Centennial hops (clue was in the name). More malt sweetness than Id expect from an IPA. Reminded me a lot of Bells Two Hearted Ale.

I have had this one several times before, but its my first rating. Pour out of a 12 oz bottle. Nice hop scent, gorgeous filtered look and head. The sweet spot is the hop, citrus and pine taste, as well as the balance of malts. Seriously, this is an IPA to put on your bucket list. Cheers!

complex aromas of medium caramel malts and distinct centennial citrus notes. amber and clear in color with nice long lasting head. taste is well balanced between light to medium caramel malt notes and citrus hop notes. clean and smooth finish.

Blueshawk (465) - 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

Bottle 33cl. Small white layer diminishing. Hazy orange peach color. Not too carbonated. Aroma is pumpkin, strawberry, some hops. Taste is some bitter with fruity tea.
