Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale (2012) Beer Review


Photo credit:

Brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

$8.99/Six Pack (deal of the season, I promise)

Style: American IPA

6.80% ABV

Serve at 45-50

Enjoyed from a DFH Signature glass

A: Pours a beautiful translucent copper-orange color with a finger of off-white head. Great lacing to the last drink.

S: Huge initial burst of piney and floral hops. Spicy citrus notes mix with caramel sweetness and a biscuity presence. Pineapple and candied citrus round it out.

T: Grapefruit, lemon, naval orange, and tropical fruit on the front end. That progresses to caramel, finishing with a piney, resinous wave that coats your mouth.

M: Medium-bodied and perfect. Very sticky and chewy.

O: Thanksgiving isn’t the only thing to anticipate every November. The Celebration Ale is a perfect fresh hop treat, gaining steam and popularity every season. This drinkable IPA should be the standard for determining one’s proclivity towards hopheadedness. Perfect balance adds to the cult status with beer geeks and average beer drinkers alike. Go get some before it’s history.
