2005 version. Great hop aroma, and a bit of a sweet smell underneath. Not a great looking beer, small head, copper color. Tastes like a strong IPA, but it has a fairly watery palate. Still very good.

Ferris (6243) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Draft - Fresh Woody and leafy notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Woody, vegative and bitter with some pale malts. This tastes a bit old and stale, will try again.

Let’s dispense with the pretenses and admit that despite its size, Sierra Nevada puts out a great product . Celebration is no exception. 2-3 of these will have you flying high. The taste for me isn’t quite as good as the Torpedo double IPA. It’s a little spicier, but it’s nice to have a season alternative to Torpedo.

Pours amber with a white head. Light to medium body. A good amount of bitterness from the hops with hints of citrus, ginger and nutmeg and finishes sweet.

Tayeth (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
Geruch nach Hopfen, frischem Gras, weißen Trauben. Geschmack dann sehr bitter, vor allem im Nachgeschmack astringierend und seifig.

Geruch nach Citrus, leicht bedeckt. Im Antrunk nicht allzu suß, aber ein schöner Hopfenvorhang, der sich in den Rachen legt. Ein bisschen grasig, aber langanhaltend bitter.

this beer is an exceptional seasonal. a fantastic ipa with a very slight spicy nose that really defines the season.
