COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judgings. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ale’s sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

12 oz bottle. Light copper pour with a thin fizzy off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and vanilla. Great hoppy taste of citrus, mild carbonation, with a sharp, slight peppery finish.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Knee jerk reaction says top 3 IPA’s I’ve had, but give me a minute........ Yup, very Two-Hearted, Furious-esque. I really enjoy this beer, and once again, Founders fails to dissappoint.

Bottle at LIC Craft Beer Festival. Clear yellow pour with nice frothy white head. Citrus, pine, and caramel in the nose. The flavor starts with cascade hops, then caramel, then a strong pine bite. Soft body yet crisp mouthfeel with a caramel-pine finish. Well made IPA.

Drank from the tap at the NYC Craft beer festival. Pours a very light amber-yellow. Incredibly diverse floral and citrus aroma; you can almost taste the flavors as you breath them in. Taste is grapefruit, citrus hops, lemon, some caramel and a nice bitter finish.

just rated an ipa from michigan, and ill say the same thing here. I am really enjoying the ipa’s from michigan, that it seems like the brewers here take the good from east coast and west coast ipa’s and create something that is right in between. Great hop flavor and taste but dont neglect the malts. very enjoyable and i cant wait to try another from founders.

A clear copper pour with cream head. It has a citrus hop aroma and medium body. The bittersweet taste melds into a long bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy amber color with a foamy off white head. Aroma is heavy citrus hops with a little bit of a bready malt aroma behind it. Taste is citrus hops with a noticeable bitterness but not overwhelming. Crisp, thin texture. Very good.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Nice murky dark orange color. Nice white head that pours 1 inch and last for a bit. Nice looking beer. Seems to have aroma of pears and lemons. First taste is bitter and nice...good solid IPA bitterness. Could be west coast, but is from Michigan. Not too much malt coming through, mostly the bitter hops and floral. Mouthfeel is in the middle, like you would expect a good IPA to be. Overall, I would definitely buy this again. Not sure it is the best IPA out there....90 min has my vote, but this is a good solid one.
