Founders Centennial IPA

Name – Founders Centennial IPA
Country – United States
Type – American IPA

Appearance – Poured a clear amber color with a big white head that left lacing on the glass.

Smell – Very subtle hop aroma.  Kind of pine like and earthy.

Taste – The hops on this are really funky.  I can’t quite describe it but the piney and earthy hops are just not mixing well here.  There is a caramel like malt backing to it but the funk of this hop profile just lingers around well after sipping it.

I don’t know if something just happened to these beers on the delivery to me or maybe this was a bad batch or even I just don’t like the way it tastes but I really didn’t care for this one at all.  Just something about the profile of hops in this one did not sit well with me and I am a self admitted hop head.

Overall Grade – D-

    Wow…When I was beer shopping on Friday I had this beer literally in my hand, but decided to put it down. I guess I’m glad I did.

      I would totally try it again if I can from a location that actually sells it. Like it I said maybe I got a bad batch or the travel messed with it. Always open to retrying things.
