Ridiculous lacing. Nice copper color.
The noes does not stand out compared to the rest of the experience. Some basic citrus, caramel malts. Maybe citrus caramel malts is not such a basic scent. It is good either way.
Intense, wonderfully citrus hops flavors are wonderfully balanced by caramel hops. I'd have to say it leans more towards the sweet malts than the bitter hops, but it flows so well together. However, the persistent backing bitterness that keeps you remembering this is an IPA to be reckoned.
Creamy, sweet sticky mouth feel is very satisfying.
This is a beer that makes me feel good. I simply want more. I've been enjoying this beer more than Stone's IPA and other great beers of the same ilk, but this one is very nice, smooth and satisfying.

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!
