Haven't had a Celebration Ale in a while, and found a 2008 single, had to try it.
Poured into Pint glass
Appearance-Slightly hazy amber color with suprisingly a 1-2 finger off white head after all these years.
Smell-Lots of caramel malts, pretty sweet smelling. Light citrus and some hops.
Taste-Got alot of unique flavors in this. Besides the heavy caramel malts and citrusy hops I got some cocoa nibs, pear, green apple. The hops have faded over the years but still a very tasty beer.
Mouthfeel-Creamy, Smooth, easy to drink. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink.
Overall-I've never been the type to drink a 2.5 year old IPA, but this was really good. Can't wait to drink fresh ones soon.
Serving type: bottle
