Bottle into pint glass
Pours clear brassy copper / gold with two fingers of aggrssive foamy offwhite head. Sheets of lace coat the sides of my glass.
Scent is distinctly oranges, grapefruit and citrus, and fresh bread, and floral
Taste is strongly oranges and citrus hops, grapefruit hops, floral and slightly spicy. Even sweet sugary pineapple and tropical fruits! Sweet and oily. Hint of spice. White pepper? Mild bitterness. This is not a hop bomb with respect to bitterness though it is clearly packed with aroma hops and hop flavor.
Mouth is juicy and a bit oily, creamy and viscous medium - on the heavier side thereof.
Drinkability is fantastic.
Wow this is a fantastic IPA. Fresh and juicy, vibrant and colorful, eminently quaffable. WOW!

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!
