look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy, dark golden, almost amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is strong floral and citrus notes. Taste is complex, floral and citrus right away followed by a nice malt sweetness and then a lingering hop bitterness. Very pleasant mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a nice crisp finish. Medium bodied and easy drinking. This is an exceptional IPA, the centennial hop character definitely comes through, mostly in the aroma. The beer is well balanced for the style and is not overbearingly bitter, however the aroma is incredible. I will definitely be having this beer again soon.

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!
