I have been drinking a lot of beers, but slacking on theses reviews. But I did buy this beer for review, this is the 2011 version. The 2012 just came out, which I will get and review as well.
A: This beer pours a dark orange color with a 1 1/2 inch soapy off white head, which almost overflowed out of my glass.
S: I get an initial aroma of grapefruit and pine, with some hop characteristics. Very potent smell that is complimented by some sweetness from honey and malts.
T: Very earthy taste consisting of grapefruit and pine up front. As I get into the flavor I get a dryness from the yeast and sweetness from the malts.
M: Very sweet flavor, a bit tangy, but the hop bite is not severe. Minimal carbonation, but very sessionable.
O: This is the 2011 Celebration ale, so it might have lost some of its characteristics over the course of the year, but I didnt notice. I got a very quality IPA, and from Sierra Nevada, I would expect nothing less than quality. Did not disappoint, even after aging a year. Look forward to trying the 2012!
