Medium amber color. Floral aroma hop smell with apple hints. Bittering hops run through this brew's veins, and malty sweetness compliments it very well. Great brew

Beautiful color, relatively dark for an IPA. Smell is not piney or fruity, subdued. Great feel, slightly bitter. Right up my alley really, could accidentally drink a lot of it! ;)

I think I've come to the realization that Centennial hops are not my style. This tastes much different than the types of IPAs I prefer. This beer reminded me of why, once upon a time, I didn't like IPA.

Most anything else I've had from Founders has been exceptional, though.
