This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pale golden; diminutive white semi-frothy head becomes a ring and very sparse covering. Aroma is really fresh, wet, juicy, grassy, citrus, orange, bread. Flavor is ultra-fresh with heavy-but-not-insane levels of hops; lots of lemon and grass and hay. Medium body, smooth. World-class IPA. Awesome.

Bottle at home (bottled on 10/03/16). Pours light hazy golden amber with a white head. Aroma of piny resiny floral hops, citrus and sweet malts. Taste is over moderate bitter, light sweet, long resiny bitter aftertaste. Nice. Would love to try this fresh.

From a bottle. Pours a dark gold and makes a frothy white head. Aroma is of fresh resins piney hops and a strong citrus character. Tastes of fresh, fresh, cut hops. The wet hopping really works on this ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (2745) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, 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.

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.

sawbuck (695) - 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.

This is the first beer Ive ever drank and RATED before 4:00pmEST. (Vitos Pizza & Beer, York, PA) I had time to kill until my rental van arrived at Enterprise, which by the way Ive nothing but good experiences with! Kudos! This was meant to be just a quickie and split. I ordered Founders Centennial IPA, my bar keep couldnt 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! Its earthy-floral bitterness, nice malt balance, dang Ive 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?
