3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours deep cloudy orange with thick off white head. Aroma is flat caramel malt and mild floral hops. Taste is big, fresh, piney, juicy hops and semi sweet malt. Kind of a fresh hop IPA, kinda a winter beer, called a regular IPA - though not nearly as hop strong as Torpedo. More subtle lemon zest and earthy bitterness dominate. A personal favorite of mine.

Striking hazy copper manifestation. Bountiful fresh powder head. Lace is left behind like fresh tracks on your secret powder spot. Medium carbonation. Very smooth palate. Pleasant malty sweetness, with a soft citrus hop undertone. Finishes with an easygoing bitterness. delightful indeed. Thanks Lagerboy

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Draught at Bierhaus. Pours a clear amber, with a lasting head and great lacing. Aromas of floral citrus, pine resin. Light sweetness and strong bitterness, yet remains balanced. Bitter finish, reasonably dry with lively carbonation yet quite a smooth mouthfeel. Better than I gave it credit for but itís a bit one-dimensional.
Original Rating: 7 3 7 3 13
Draught at Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours a clear amber with white lacing. Intriguing aromas of raw fish, seaside, pine, grass. Light saltiness at the front followed by medium malty sweetness and light hoppy bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Decent but a little underwhelming when compared with others at the festival.

A great seasonal offering from Sierra Nevada. A little cloudy with bits of hops floating. Rosey amber. Nice malt balance. Made with first harvest hops.

Like the torpedo this IPA is dominated by a herbal hop character in flavour and aroma, however this one seems to have more of a lingering spicyness to it. The malt characteristics are also slightly different. Some lemon rind also, lively bitterness. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite honestly, wow.
Appearance: A nice bronze-ish color with a very nice head ... the lacing is remarkable from beginning to end. One gorgeous looking beer.
Smell: Just a completely awesome splash of hops on the nose with a perfect amount of malts to let you know that theyíre in there ... one of the most balanced smelling IPAs Iíve whiffed.
Taste/feel: Truly outstanding, and thatís all that can really be said about it ... one of the best beers that I have ever had, no doubt. Celebration could well be the best IPA Iíve had, and Iíve had some good ones. It just has that nice bitterness youíd expect from an IPA, but it has some malty character as well. Not many IPAs are quite like this one, and I can completely understand all of the acclaim. Nearly flawless.

From bottle. Pours an amber color. Aroma was sweet and spicy with citrus hops. Taste follows with a sweet malt balanced well with pine, grapefruit and citrus hop notes all wrapped up in the beer.
