Rating Celebration out of the bottle, though I had it on tap previously and really enjoyed it. No best before on the bottle that I could see. Poured into a schooner glass.
A - light, clear golden color with perhaps a hint of red, small head that leaves some lacing behind, looks fairly carbonated
S - had an awesome waft of hops when the bottle was opened, but on the actual nose of the beer it was pretty light and not very expressive; more malt on the nose than hops
T - excellent bitter edge, but interestingly without any strong citrus or pine elements, resolves into some malty smoothness but the bitterness really sticks around. Slightly boozy on the back end; reminds a bit of a winter warmer in that regard
M - nice light feel with crisp carbonation, maybe a slightly butter end
D - quite drinkable, though I'd imagine the hops bitterness would compound significantly after a few.
Overall a nice beer; would definitely have it again!
