What we have here is something pretty special. Celebration Ale is a unique IPA with hops, hops and more hops. I poured this from a bottle into a pint glass. Wonderful appearance with a head that sticks around and provides excellent lacing. To the nose you get plenty of hops, there is no mistaking you are about to consume one of the great American IPAs. While the hops overpowers the scent the taste is loaded with yes....of course hops but you'll also pick up a lot of pine, small amounts of citrus and yes more hops. This IPA works great for the holidays as this might be a bit much for the warmer part of the year.
To sum it up, this is a very very complex beer with layers of flavor but not much balance...but it works here. Definitely not for the faint of heart but for the true enthusiast, Celebration Ale is a world class brew and a real treat!
