Founders Centennial IPA

The Founders Brewing Company is in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

This 7.2% ABV dry-hopped and unfiltered IPA pours copper and deep amber-orange in color.  There is a half-inch of creamy and foamy head, off-white to very light brown in color.  The aroma is tropical fruit, pineapple, melon, sweet, floral, with a solid malt background.  The taste is melon, light tropical fruit, lots of semi-sweet orange, bitter, floral hops, with some distinct caramel maltiness.  The finish is dry and bitter, grapefruit rind, but also with a long, lingering fruitiness. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A very solid IPA.
