A - Pours a really nice, light orange with a barely off white finger head into my Brooklyn snifter. Solid retention, great lacing too!

S - Strong grapefruit presence, lemon and orange. Gotta love centennial hops. A minuscule amount of caramel hops coming through

T - Mmmm citrusy hops all the way, my type of brew. There could be a little spice in here as well? not really sure. Some maltyness as well, slightly dry finish, nice bitter aftertaste.

M - Perfect, medium bodied, definitely drinkable. Appropriate Carbonation

O - Drinkable, citrusy bitter, refreshing. My type of IPA, a lot like Two Hearted Ale (also all centennial hopped) but this is probably more bitter

A: Light golden coloring, white frothy head, good lacing
S: Pick up grapefruit, some lemongrass, orange
T: Definite hops, not too in your face, fairly mellow, some piney flavors toward the end
M: Very smooth, not too syrupy
O: I really enjoyed this one...again right up front with the grassy, piney hops and very easy finish without being overly bitter.

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Clear deep orange color. Two fingers of off white head that faded to a thin rim. Very nice looking beer.

A: Citrus hops all the way. Grapefruit, orange, tangerine, with a touch of mango. A subtle caramel malt note trys to give this some sort of balance, but the hops dominate.

T: Follows the nose. Citrus fruit and hops all day. The touch of caramel malt is a nice touch to what is obviously a hop forward brew. It finishes exteremely bitter, as it should, with just a touch of sweetness.

M: Medium body, perfect levels of carbonation. Really spot on.

O: Yet another fine offering from Founder's. Reminds me a lot of Two hearted, which is expected because of the centennial hops. But if I had access to it on a regular basis, this would be in my fridge quite often.

A: single finger head with a thin rim of retention. Hazy to cloudy crimson with gold hues body. Lots of lacing.

S: very nice floral, citrus and oaky aroma. pretty much perfect.

T: Nice mildly citrusy, woody and floral hop taste. This beer gets all of the flavoring out of the centennial hops used.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: about as good of a centennial hopped beer I have had.
