Six pack of '07 version purchased 11/23/07
Looked nice. Very deep orange, with a perfect white head
Smelled very hoppy and clean. For the amount of "C" hops, this one has the right amount of malt sweetness in the nose.
Taste is great. Hoppy, yet balanced, in a way that only the masters at Sierra Nevada can pull off year after year.
Mouthfel is nice. The bittering hops coat my mouth with the oily viscosity that is washed away by the beautiful use of malts, and then quickly reminds me that it is an IPA for the ages with more hops.
Drinkability is as good as it gets for IPAs. The only other IPA that can hold a candle to Celebration in my mind is Furious. But seeing as how Furious is about as hard to come by around here as a girl who cooks, cleans, and doesn't talk, and Celebration is in every gas station, restaurant, and corner liquor store, I am quite satisfied and content. I hope to one day make it up to Chico. (For the brewery, not the debauchary that ensues around campus.)
Fantastic. Highly recommended... As if you didn't already know
