12oz bottle - clear pale yellow appearance with a med to thick frothy white head. Hoppy aroma is mostly citrus and a hint of tropical notes with a light malt undertone. Tasty and clean flavor of citrus peel, bitter herbal, papaya and light bready malt. jjsint (3335) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine & More, St Petersburg. Dark gold, a little bit hazy with almost no head or visible carbonation. Mango and orange aroma with a notable malt scent. A slight vegetal touch as well. Taste is clean and bitter with some resinous astringency, but not so bitter as to spoil the balance. Long bitter finish. Orange peel, a bit of lime and some resinous pine in the aftertaste. Tasty. DiarmaidBHK (5455) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Draft at Thirsty Monk. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of citrus on the nose. Big citrus notes on the tongue with some pine cone action. Finished sharp and clean. Nice example of style. Cajun (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle - Pours a golden amber, white soapy head. Citrus, pine, and fruit in the nose. Pine, orange, bready malts, hoppy bitterness, with a mild center ala fruit juice, dry finish. C’est bon. sawbuck (749) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Some piney hops on the nose along with some lemon. Hazy yellow orange color with a thick tan head. Rich sweet malt up front. Bitterness comes in hap hazardly next, odd balance. Bitterness is medium with notes of pine. Finish is bitter with not much else. Medium mouth feel. Bottle was dated 10/3/16 so not sure if that had to do with the mediocre showing. Will try fresher version next year.

This poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma is piney with some lemons and orange peel. Some floral notes in the nose as well. The flavor is very bitter with a strong lemon presence. The aftertaste is bitter and slightly dry. Overall not very complex but still a good IPA. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2016
This is the first beer I’ve ever drank and RATED before 4:00pmEST. (Vito’s Pizza & Beer, York, PA) I had time to kill until my rental van arrived at Enterprise, which by the way I’ve nothing but good experiences with! Kudos! This was meant to be just a quickie and split. I ordered Founders Centennial IPA, my bar keep couldn’t find it quick enough for me (bout 15 seconds) so no we have this====told my bartender to wet my glass:a story for another time LOL. Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy golden. One finger near white head that laced well and retained solidly. As for aroma, everything about this beer screamed FRESH at me! It’s earthy-floral bitterness, nice malt balance, dang I’ve been on a six week roll in life, everyday better than the last! This brew had a medium body, lively carbonation, soapy mouth feel (in a good way)! Finishes long with just the right bitterness. Is it possible for Founders to brew a bad beer? vandc01 (427) - North Branch, USA - NOV 29, 2016
A top notch fresh hop beer.
Nice hop aroma - I would definitely look for this beer again next year. andrewje41 (4091) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2016
12 oz bottle poured, courtesy of Pruf. Thanks! A lighter golden put with a decent carb, active fizz head. Aroma is wet hops dominant. Quite aromatic. Flavor is rich caramel under juicy hops. Cream body, autumn feel. Slightly toasty. Delicious citra hop content. Very nice. luttonm (6559) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. Thanks to Chris’ hand-delivered hoppy care package. Sudsy foam, warm amber gold. Fresh, tangy tangerine citrus aroma. Clean, punchy, very tasty IPA body. Great juicy, perfume hops. Delicious. Very enjoyable.
