I've had this beer on multiple occasions from multiple years and never reviewed it. I'm about to watch the Bengals lose the Jets, so I figured it was time to review this one.
2010 Celebration into a traditional pint glass.
Pours a clear, burnt orange with a nice, big a frothy head. Great, sticky lacing and excellent head retention. Very nice looker.
Light grapefruit, some minor lactic qualities and sweet malts. Overall, minimal aroma on the nose.
Fresh and lightly bittering grapefruit essence. Fresh earthy hops (mild dirt and vegetable like freshness). Nice malt backbone.
Great mouthfeel for an IPA with moderate bitterness and high carbonation. Easy to drink.
Your quintessential fresh hopped IPA. A World class example in consistency. Always pleasing and enjoyable.
