Celebration – Fresh Hop IPA (6.8%) - Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (California)
☆☆☆☆

App: Copper and gold brown with a little bit of haze and a really nice two finger white head that persists. Lots of sticky lacing coating the insides of the glass when the head finally collapses a little.

Smell: Mild, berry like tartness forefront in the nose complimented by light, toffee like malts. Hops isn't as prevalent as with some IPAs. But as this is fresh hopped, it's not unexpected.

Taste: Leafy green hops pungency dominates every aspect of this brew. Malt is definitely strong enough to hold up, as the hops never slap you out of your chair, but there's something about fresh hops that make them seem more complicated without necessarily being stronger. Foretaste is all hops, with a little bit of alcohol taste in the aftertaste. Could maybe use just the slightest more maltiness.

Mouth: Rounded body, with enough malt to hold up to the hops assertiveness. Well carbonated and easy drinking for the initiated.

Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Tulip Glass. 12/18/13
