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.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Celebration pint glass. The color is a hazy Orange with yellowish highlights. There is a finger and a half of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is earthy hops with a spicy pine aroma on the edges. There is a slight dankness here in the nose. The taste has a nice sweetness at first with a citrus flavor that is mixed with tangerine and a slight hint of cherry. the bitterness comes out toward the back of this beer and pushed forward till there is bitterness building as it finishes. The feel of this beer is lighter then most IPAs and is pretty drinkable. This beer is quite refreshing and a pleasure going down.

330 ml bottle. The pour is a hazy golden amber, with a good head of white froth. Aromas released are nicely balanced hop aromas with pine, floral and citrus fruit notes. Taste is also well balanced, sweetness of the malts and fruity notes, balanced with pine, resin, and ending with bitterness, although not overly intense, despite the high IBU rating. The carbonation is average, and helps to enhance the medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, a nice, well balanced package, sets a standard for IPAs!

Pours a small fizzy bubbly head and has a coppery appearance, slightly dark amber. Aromas are mainly floral and resin hops. A bit of toasts, malts and nuts. Sweet and strong hoppy flavours, floral and citrus hops mainly. Faint nutty notes and hints of caramel. Fairly bitter on the palate and in the finish but balanced well with sweetness. Not bad, just doesn’t really stand out from other ipa’s I’ve had lately.

Dark amber, tight head. Quite malty, some citrus and pine but the standout is the floral. Hint of ederflower

Todella makea, humalointi yllättävän kevyttä. Karvas, maltainen, ipaksi outo mutta kivasti juotava.

HourGlass13 (900) - 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.
