Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear copper colour with off white head. Aroma is earthy and grassy. Taste is grassy hops with a nice maltiness to go with a pleasing bitterness. Good beer.

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Ruby mahagony Brown hue with medium vanilla head. Spicy malt flavor with citrus, pepper, and slight juniper. Like the subtle bitterness balanced with the malt. Still has a nice dry finish.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4656) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 20, 2016
Sierra Nevada Hop Celebration 2015 This fresh hop winter IPA pours a deeper russet gold that kind of makes me think of Aki no Kimagure. Itís got a great fragrant hop bouquet juicy fruits(mangoes & guava) with minty lemon as well. Nice full body and very bitter hitting you with a pine whallop, then a hearty dose of fruits and finishing with a nod towards the malts. Even though itís bitter it remains balanced good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nische (1912) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2016
Tap at Saddle & Sabre. Light copper color with white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Slightly piney aroma and taste with caramel, grapefruit and floral notes. Well balanced, warming and quite pleasant.

12 ounce bottle. Strong hop aroma that changes as it warms. Starts out hoppy with citrus and pine, gets more earthy as it goes. Sweet flavor at first with a bitter finish that lingers.

davidezdonz (328) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JAN 12, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a packaged date of 19th October 2015. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It poured a clear dark copper colour with a two finger cream coloured head that had great retention and left lots of nice lacing. Aromas are citrusy lemon, apple, piney hops and sweet but slight biscuit malts. There was also some herbal and spice here and there. Tastes of light citrus and hop bitterness before it kicks in with some strong maltiness and surprising booze but nice spice. Creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this was definitely more malty and boozy than I expected (and not in a good way). However, I will retry this again to make sure, but at the moment, I definitely prefer Hop Hunter and Torpedo IPA over this.

KeefOz (1559) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured a clear dark coppery colour with a two-finger off-white frothy head that retained very well and laced very well. Carbonation high and fine to medium. Aroma strongly of pine with a hint of citrus. Taste of sweet malt, strong pine and grapefruit. Medium body. Crisp and refreshing with a lingering strong bitterness on the finish. (labelled as 2105 Celebration).
