Poured into a la Chouffe tulip

Founders centennial IPA

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from notes)

A - copper, two finger head white head and some nice lacing

S - Very sweet yeast, nice malt backbone, tons of flowers, pineapple, citrus and tropical fruits. Sugar, a bit of salt and velvety

T - tons of grapefruit, pineapple, nice sweet malt, sweet yeast, floral hops, slightly earthy, wood and some pungency

M - some what chewy, medium acidity, well balanced, nice bitterness, tons of flavor and nice complexity

D - one of the best ipas I have ever had. Tons of flavor, easy to drink and just enough alcohol. Perfect for any everyday IPA

Fin thought - at 7.2% and an awesome flavor and very refreshing. This beer rules! Thank God for trading!
