It got perfect 5's last year and this year, if anything, it's a little smoother. I wonder how that six-pack from last year that I've kept in the back of my pantry (right next to a six of 2001 Big Foot) is faring?

Notes from 2000: If this is November, then Celebration Ale must be on the shelves. It's like biting into a raw hop leaf. Would I be too out of line to describe Celebration as a world-class IPA to go with SN's world-class pale ale?
