Cemtennial has become more 'everyday' beer, For me, it has all the necessary traits to make a super beer.
The color is so inviting! That nice orange glow, somewhat hazy light the morning sunshine with moisture in the air. The aroma still excites with a refreshing scent of orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. That pleasant and enjoyable aroma you get from a powerful hoppy beer. And all of that was not over done. The aroma was just right and now for the taste. It is soft, it is round, it fulls your mouth. There is nothing but per enjoyment with this beer. The first sip is so rewarding and every taste after that just gives you more and more pleasure. The final aftertaste leaves with that excellent dry pucker, realizing. that you just had a near perfect beer. Finally, the finish, perfectly balance between hops and malt. Neither one outdoing the other. And now the best part of any review, I WANT ANOTHER ONE!!

Tasted this one again from a can. I was more than totally happy and surprise with just how much I enjoyed this beer.
It had a fair amount of hops, nothing over the top, but just enough to give you that pleasant dry flavor. The aftertaste was lingering and totally enjoyable.
This beer moved up for me.

Poured a little amber in color with a tiny tight head. There wasn't a lot of bouquet from this one. I expected a bit more hoopy and citrus/grapefruit aroma from this one considering the IBU.

It was very clean and crisp with a light delightful taste. The after taste was clean

Overall a nice beer from founders, cant find anything wrong with it, but on the other hand I cant sing its praise
