4.49/5 rDev +8.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Served in a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
Appearance is a translucent reddish orange with about a finger-width of head. Great retention and some lacing on the side of the glass.
Smell is fairly mild but distinct floral and pine notes.
Taste is really pleasant, a combination of pine and citrus from the hops, but does not overwhelm with bitterness. Great balance makes it surprisingly easy to drink, and also easy to forget the 7.2% alcohol content.
Mouthfeel was quite nice, some mild carbonation with a lingering and slightly astringent aftertaste.
Overall this is an excellent easy-drinking IPA.

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!
