Hazy golden orange with lots of little unfiltered floaties. It has a smallish creamy off-white head that quickly went to a thin film and laced the glass. Heavy citrus aroma backed up by light malts. Flavor is spicy and sweet hops, a great combination with enough malt to back up the sweetness. Very drinkable and the alcohol is slightly hidden.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint.

A: Pours a clear, golden orange color with 1/2 finger of off-white head. Some retention and lace.

S: Sweet malt, pine and grapefruit hops.

T: Good pine up front, followed by some sweet malt reinforcement, and then strong, bitter pine on the finish. Delicious flavor.

M: Smooth, medium body, a little cream and oil.

O: Today marks the first day Founders is officially in Iowa. The is the first time I've had the Centennial, and I'm pleased with it. Great flavor that I will be happy to enjoy again.

12 oz bottle in a duvel tulip

Pours a nice orange with a finger length white head. Lacing is sticky. Great hop aroma. If you have ever brewed with centennial hops you will recognize it immediately. Very piney. Flavor is of piney hops with a caramel back. Very biting and somewhat citric with a great malt blend. There's toffee and caramel in there somewhere. Mouthfeel is medium to thin and the flavor resonates. This is a super sessionable beer and the alcohol is invisible. Excellent session IPA
