12 fl oz bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small, off-white and creamy head. Aroma is slight soapy, crisp peachy, grassy and vague spiced. Sweet fruity, light peachy and light caramelish sweet flavoured. Dry and bitter towards the end with a mild grassy touch. Vague soapy note. Rather dry and bitter finish.

Defreni (3086) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2010
Flaske: Dejlig duft af blomstret humle med en god snert af citrus, ovenp en ravfarvet l med et fint skumhoved. Smagen er kraftig humlet med en ordentlig dosis bitterhed, men dog med en fint afbalanceret maltsdme som gr den ekstrem drikbar. Virkelig en lkker l.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 15-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours orange with fine white head. The nose is - IPA, well not just any IPA. This is fantastic. Very bitter, grape fruits, oranges, pineapples, but also some slightly roasted notes from the malt. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise almost IIPA-like wiht the heavy malt presence to balance the immense hop amount. Very long, very bitter aftertaste with a fine medium carbonation. Certainly one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Never had a boring Founders. They are not like some of the other breweries that just try to make stronger beers, they always give the style an edge. Thank you, Founders:)

Sabrinic (23) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle. Hazy light amber color pour with a slight head that went away quickly. Great strong hoppy taste thats not overly bitter. Hoppy, floral with hints of citrus. A great IPA.

DandyWolfFloyd (1200) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2010
The aroma one this IPA is full of hop resins, a little floral notes, and some nice caramel doughy malts. The appearance is a hazy orange color with a fluffy initial head, that slithers down the side of the glass into a nice slice of white head. The taste is a very complex overlay of light sweetness disguised under the oily resin and hop note moderate bitterness. The body is medium - leaning towards light with an oily texture that has an adequate carbonation and a nicely balanced buttery bitter finish. Great IPA

Being that centennial hops are one of my favorites...this beer is quite tasty. Aroma and flavor are packed with citrus and pine....as well as a nice malt backbone. Great session IPA!

chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Orangeish pour with slight white head. Hoppy aroma of malts, citrus, and lemon. Tangerine comes more in the flavor which is sweet and not too carbonated. Finish is slightly bitter but not too bad. Smooth IPA.

andersand (529) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2010
Light orange colour with a sticky off.white head. Some spiderwebby lazings on the glass. Aroma is sweet hops, tropical fruit and light malt. Flavour is sweet but hoppy with notes of tangerine and passion fruit. Ends on a fairly bitter and fruity note. Body is medium with fairly low carbonation. ok.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2011 Founders brews my favorite porter and imperial stout, so I expect everything they produce to be excellent. The Centennial IPA is very good, thought not my favorite IPA. This IPA has one of the nicest aromas around and a great taste to boot. *Re-rated 10.6.11 - Enjoy this even more after several goarounds. Who would of thought a single-hop IPA would taste so complete, but it does.

Bottle. Poured a orangish yellow color with a little white head that went rather quickly. Left lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was pine, grass, and spruce. Flavor was bitter. Hops, citrus, and pine. Very dry finish. A great ipa.
