Founders Centennial IPA
Founders Brewing Company
Got in a trade from drxandy. Thanks!
Centennial pours out a translucent amber color with orange highlights, some of which are almost yellow. A generous off-white head emerges with decent retention and spotty lacing.
This beer has a rather faint odor for an IPA. Citrus grapefruit hop aroma is definitely the strongest.
The taste begins with piney bitterness up front with a tongue-numbing bitterness in the finish. Hop flavor is present throughout the experience. Malt is almost nowhere to be found. The aftertaste is dry and delightfully bitter. I may have liked to taste a little more balance, but I do enjoy the flavor.
Centennial has a light to medium body with ample carbonation, very nice for this style.
Excellent bitterness and a light body make this beer very enjoyable and drinkable. 7.2% ABV is on the hefty side for an IPA, yet the alcohol flavor is very well hidden. Overall, this beer is quite solid.
