4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a solid amber with small white head. Aroma is predominantly grapefruit. Exceptional sweet taste of grapefruit and white grapes. A very hoppy and tangy beer but well balanced IPA with just the right amount of malt undertones. A little too strong fizz sensation on the tongue. This is an excellent IPA.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma is everything you’d want in a aromatic IPA. Floral and citrus. I can smell the sweetness. The pour is beautiful...deep gold with a nice white head. The tase is perfect for me. Im liking hoppier beers more and more but this showcases the hops and the malts equally and is so balanced. I can see how it isn’t quite hoppy enough. Its sweet and bitter on the finish and has a nice body. Founders doing it right again.

Beer at the office is bittersweet - you are doing something you shouldn’t and you didn’t pay for it. But it also means it’s 9pm and you are still at the office.
Founders Centennial IPA however, is also bitter sweet. Bitter dry hops ever so slightly, but more sweet caramely flavors almost a toasted chocolate flavor somewhere hidden underneath coming out. But the majority of the taste is sweet citrus hops for you to enjoy.
