On cask @ Fat Head's Brewer's Brawl. Served as "Double Dry Hopped Centennial IPA".
Holy Moly. This beer is a whole new creature entirely when dry hopped and served at cask temperature.
Poured a cloudy golden orange. Nice white head.
Smell is out of this world. Peaches like nobody's business. Orange, pineapple, mango, and a touch of grapefruit. Such a kick-ass nose.
After a few other hoppy beers, I had this after eating some chips and a brat, and my palate was wrecked again. Just one of the most intense centennial beers I've had. Soundly sits 2 hearted on it's ass. The cask made the bitterness more pronounced but also seemed more flavorful and balanced. Loved this, miles above the bottled version.
Mouthfeel was great. Actually probably a touch too carbed off the cask, but brilliant.
Drinkability was also wonderful. I went back for a second and enjoyed that just as much. Founders coming through with a HUGE variant here!

Nice appearance and mouthfeel, but the taste left me unimpressed.
If you're a hop-head, you'll like this one. If you like balance or complexity, not so much. (I like balance, so while I can appreciate the resinous, tangy hops, it was too one-dementional for my palate.)
