Fresh bottle from the brewery store.
Pours a slight russety amber topped by a decent head. Lays down tight sheets of lacing.
Aroma of citrus peels and caramel with pine and toasty notes.
Tastes the same, like navel oranges and caramel. Bright and fresh tasting with a clean bitterness in the finish that's no where near harsh, only slightly spicy. Malt builds some breadiness with light touches of dark chocolate. Bitterness slowly builds with each sip giving a nice piney bitterness to balance it out.
Mouthfeel is medium, with a slight oiliness about it. Slightly dry in the finish.
Overall a very good and 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!
