This is one of my favorite beers. Hoppy, fresh, floral. A great value.

If you are an IPA fan, you'll likely love this release.

I was able to get this at a discounted price as a seasonal brew. It's not as great with age, but still great.

If you favor spicy, sweet seasonal brews move along.

Celebration can stand up to any IPA on the market.
Simply delicious.
Easy to find and reasonably priced too.

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium goblet. Nice off-white head and lovely lacing. The color is unfiltered medium amber. The aroma is really wonderful--citrusy hops predominate. The flavor is rich, delightful, strong hops balanced with malt. Mouthfeel is medium thick, with fairly strong carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding ale, different than Torpedo in character, but defines truly from the same family. TMZL below does a much better description of this ale. I just love it!
