Had a barrel of this while harvesting a quarter acre of centennial hops. Great brew...

12 oz Bottle into a tasting glass.

Looks fine, orange Amber color. Darker than your normal ipa. Smell is faint but of onions, pine and resin. Taste is scarcely bare able. Strong astringent onions and garlic. Terrible syrupy pine sap and pine cones linger on the palate. I've heard a lot of people comment that Founders Centennial IPA would struggle with west coast distribution bc it can't stack up to west coast IPAs. It's even worse than that, this is just a poorly crafted ipa that tastes like from an amateur brewery. Really a challenge to finish.

Just doesn't hold up against the competition. I expected more from it.

From the bottle, a fairly deep amber color, almost copper, with a nice one inch head. It has a strong fresh hop aroma that suggests quite a bit of dry hoping. I found the taste more piney than citrus with little malt flavor. It has a lingering bitter mouthfeel. A good solid IPA.
