12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. This is the 2009 edition. Comes in at 9.6%.
A-Pours a one finger head that quickly dissolves into a nice white ring. Color is caramel brown with a red hue. Nice lacing.
S-After opening intital smell of citrus hops hit, very much like Celebration. It has a really nice hop bouquet. Warming alcohol can also be detected.
T-Piney hops, grapefruit bitterness, some alcohol is in there. Not overly sweet.
M-Heavy bodied with nice carbonation. Very creamy and the bitterness stays in the back of the mouth.
D-As a fan of hops, I love it. Sweetness is limited. To me it is Celebration after a few cycles at Balco.
A very good brew by SN. As good as it is, I think for me a 12 ounce bottle is more than enough in a night. Would like to see how this guy tastes in a year after the hops have faded.
