Have seen it on the shelf for months, and never tried. My best bud picked up a sixer for dinner tonight and we were both pleasantly surprised!
A - For being unfiltered, this was quite a clear beer. Poured a nice amber copper color, a deepness to it was beautiful. White, foamy finger of head. Good carbonation.
S - Smelled of sweet malts and hops. Grassy and earth tones abundant. This was a very earthy, fresh, grassy smelling IPA, just what I like.
T - Starts out with a mildly sweet malt, quickly punched out by the hops. The Centennial hops are beautifully balanced with the ever so distant citrus kick at the end.
M - Medium bodied, great drinkability. This beer went down smooth, and was never overwhelming.
O - Another good brew by Founders, this one is easily found, and makes a great go-to brew, perfect for hot summer days!

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!
