3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I have been waiting such a long time to taste this that it has become somewhat of an iconic beer. Unfortunately for this beer the Aussie scence has improved significantly as well as the availability of some seriously great US IPAs. So I have to now admit that this is rated on the basis of the competition. Still a great aroma and presentation in the glass. The hop presence is fine but not assertive. A bloody great beer as it would have been many years ago had I had it then. Now, a fine ale, but not a knockout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Nov 2015. Amber color with big head. Aroma is herbal hops, piney, resinous, toasty malts. Taste is the same, quite bitter, nice toasty malt body. Bittersweet finish. More English than I would have expected from an American Fresh Hop IPA... Okay though. Why is this still within its European best before date?

Das Celebration Fresh Hop IPA 2015 aus der Flasche vom Händler des Vertrauens. Fast kupferfarben mit massiver, nahezu undurchdringlicher Schaumkrone im Glas. Feine Pinien- und Zitrusaromen im Antrunk und auch später. Wenig Restbittre.
