I must say...as a Hophead. I LOVE HOPS! Fell in love with: PtE & Y Dreadnaught Bad Boy Poorman's DIPA Citra Abner Heady Topper honerable mention... Point of this Thread - That first Celebration Ale of the year just does more for me than any of these others I mention above. If Celebration were a year round offering, I admit. It most likely would not be in the same conversation. (Completely different profile and not a DIPA I'm well aware...) But there really is something very, very special about this beer. For what it's worth, 2012 NAILED it IMHO. Others feel the same way? Disagree? Healthy debate...GO!
