T follows the nose citrus and hop

M just right - a bit of "oily ness" and a good body.
just a bit if ABV bite as it goes down

12 oz bottle poured into Stone pint glass.

A: Dark, hazy orange that is barely see through. Tons of lovely carbonation.

S: Slight malt with tons of overwhelming citrus and pine aromas. Slight grapefruit comes in as the beer warms.

T: Pine, citrus, pineapple with a nice biscuity malt flavor at the end. What I expect from an all-Centennial AIPA. Bitter ending lingers for a long time. Wonderful.

M: Good carbonation, medium-bodied

O: Very solid Centennial AIPA. Another solid offering from Founders!

This one poured to a finger of banana cream colored head over a nice orange body. This beer has good head retention. Lace gives a little effort before tumbling back into the glass.

Smells of pine, grapefruit and pineapple.

The flavor profile is very hoppy, with grapefruit and a strong pine flavor starting her out. A couple of sips in the pineapple is noticed in between these notes. The second half brings in a bready malt profile to even it out and finish the beer off with the pine and grapefruit.

The mouthfeel on this bad boy is beautifully medium bodied. It leaves a slight film and finishes rather dry yet somehow still refreshing.
