It's hard to rate this one. I heard so many people discussing how great this years stock of Celebration was. I really do like it too.... but.... this isn't what I expected. I am a huge hop head so I like it. However, I was expecting it to have some more spice & complexity to it. It's really more of your typical IPA. Last years stock wasn't the best ever, but it had an excellent spice/cinnamon thing going on and I may have enjoyed it even more than this year. IMO, if they would merge this year & last it would be perfect. On to my review... A - Nice auburn with slight puffy tan head that laced the glass well. S - Hops, hops, hops. T - More hops, where's the spice? Some citrus & pine bite, but bitter hops all the way. M - A nice brew, I love IPA's so I enjoyed it immensely, just not what was expected from the Christmas winter brew. D - You can enjoy these all winter with no problem, either way... atleast as long as you like a strong kick in the mouth of bitter hops.
