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.

Fresh 2013. Pours out a golden color with white head, chill haze. Smells like citrus, pine, some tangerine, faint tropical fruits. Tastes like a lot the same, definitely getting some Amarillos, lending some peach/apricot flavors, faintly sweet. Also bitter grapefruit and pine flavors are in there as well. Mouthfeel is decent, rich. Overall a tastes beer just not one that had particularly wowed me especially after being lucky enough to have had this years BrooDoo. Perhaps an unfair comparison.. ---Rated via my tastebuds and my brain.

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?

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.

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.

Pours burnt orange with a small white head on tap. Aroma is citrus, earthy and caramel. Taste is dominated by a citrus tartness that remains throughout. Medium bodied with crisp citrus finish.

On tap. Pours golden with a tint of orange. Has a slight sweet, hoppy smell. Flavor consists of malt, fruit, and finishes with just the right note of bitterness. A very good ale.

Bottle from West Side. Pours a deep gold to light copper with a finger of head. Juicy and bright citrus aromas. Good body but still fairly light. Highly drinkable. Resin, weed and grapefruit flavors. Bitter finish, spruce. None of those weird harsh notes that some wet-hopped ales get. Probably the best hoppy beer from founders.

2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA

AROMA: Huge citrus/tropical fruits (akin to a juice concentrate). Grassy/herbal aroma is quite prominent as well. No distinct malt scent. No alcohol. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Almost glowing shade of amber/pale orange. Slightly hazy; steady CO2. Moderate white froth; much lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: High American hop flavor and bitterness. Taste is predominately citrus/tropical along with a grassy/spicy sensation throughout the second half. Flavor is akin to juice but without the sweetness. Malt base is nondescript pale malt; very subtle toasty flavor. No alcohol presence. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied; medium-high carbonation. Hops linger for a bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Texture is quite smooth. Minor alcohol warmth is tolerable. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Delicious, highly drinkable, and commendable considering it?s mass produced and uses wet hops. 10/10

TOTAL SCORE: 46/50
