4.13/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked up a sixer before the start of the super bowl i've herd good things about this beer and i've not come across any SN beer that i havent loved, well here i go.

Appearence-much lighter then i thought it would look like. I guess i thought it would be darker like celebration but it pours a nice cooper color. Nice sticky head disipates to a thin lace.

Smell- To be honest not as pronouced as i thought it would be. Subtle floral hops, hints of sweet malty background but it didn't really blow me away.

Taste- Wow! very tasty sweet at first with a subtle bitter kick that hits the back of your palate. Sweet and bitter floral hops, a little tobacco aftertaste, nice malt flavors to balance it all out.

drinkablity-extreme i would say very balanced and smooth not to filling. Great adition by SNB.
