look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
12 Ounce bottle poured into a glass
A: Nice deep amber with a thick, white, dense head that dissipated to a thin skim on top of the beer. Lacing throughout the glass.
S: Spicy hops dominate the aroma giving way to citrus as the beer warms slightly.. Hard to detect anything beyond the hop aroma.
T: Intensely hoppy upfront with a slight malt sweetness detected. Hops linger in the finish for quite a while. Getting some peppery notes from the hops between sips.
M: Resiny and smooth. Nice carbonation level accentuating the spiciness from the hops.
D: Very drinkable and hard to stop at one. This is one of my favorite IPAs and I highly recommend this beer.

Centennial IPA - Founders brewing
7.2 ABV 65 IBU
APPEARANCE: Pours a nice golden copper, with tangerine and orange hues. Thick right khaki colored head that settled nicely.
AROMA: Nice nose with a few layers in it. Starts off very expected with the hops and citrus but the huge bready maltiness takes over. Kinda unusual for an American ipa but I like it.
TASTE: Follows the nose to a T, bright citrus, floral, hopiness. Nice change detecting no grapefruit. The malt from the nose comes in and give that great grainy sweetness. Got a little honey on the end.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with a nice medium carbonation. Slightly bitter finish not overwhelming. I did feel it got slight more bitter towards the end of the glass.
OVERALL: Thought this was a great very drinkable ipa. Nothing to extreme or to mellow just a solid right down the middle great beer!
RATING: 3.9/5 Zombie Heads!
