Color is dark golden, nicely carbonated and a white rich, but not big head. Good retention with lacing of the glass. Aroma has a hint of sour with a light floral/citrus hop undertone and a caramel malt presence. Tasting revealed a well balance brew with moderate bitterness. I know it's called Centennial but I'm thinking I taste some Cascade maybe as a bittering addition. On the front end the maltiness comes through quickly moving to a grassy hoppiness. There is a citrusy rise and finishes with a dry, lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue. Excellent example of an AIPA and while a bit bigger than their All-Day IPA, Founders has created one of the best Pale Ale series in the market.

This is a good beer, but that's all it is. I would happily enjoy one anytime just nothing too special about it. With that said, some may prefer this sort of IPA over others..it's a little lighter, not too bitter, and a bit more citrusy/ sweeter. Ill certainly have another in the future, but it wouldn't be my first option.
