In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Founders Brewing. The beer that will be featured is their Centennial IPA. If you read my earlier beer blog on their Cherry Ale, you know the history of this Michigan Brewery. If you have not read that beer blog post, please, read that beer blog to get to know this Michigan Craft Brewery. Let us get into beer.
The color is a clear copper color without a head on the IPA. The smell is grapefruit. The taste is carbonated grapefruit with a dry grapefruit that dies right away for the aftertaste. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.foundersbrewing.com):
Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.
- ABV: 7.2%
- IBUs: 65
- Availability: Year-round

Closing, I am not a huge fan of this brewery. I do not know why but I will give breweries credits when credit is due. I will honesty knock a breweries I am a fan if they put out a bad beer or a beer I do not like. This is my thought pattern and I would not take this as the gold standards. I am just idiot with thought. With all said, I will have to say I am a fan of this brew. It has a nice hop aroma and character with a great malty backbone. It is pretty drinkable and will get beer drinkers in trouble at times. I highly recommend this brewery. Please, let me know what you think of this brew. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
