4.25/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle with no freshness date poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Hazy burnt orange copper hue with chunky head. Great lacing that sticks to the glass til the very last drop.
Smell: Hoppy and floral with sweet malts settling in. Little bit of citrus, mostly grapefruit.
Taste: Sweet malty notes on the tip of the tongue with citrus-like hops commanding most of the attention. Grapefruit and lemon notes are very prominent with this one. Nice balance for an IPA since the malts are both detectable, and enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: A medium bodied brew. Very smooth. Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: Very easy to drink despite being 7.2% ABV. Goes down very quickly.
Ending notes: Would definitely get again. Yet another good beer from a solid brewery. Well done, Founders.

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!
