4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is grapefruit, pine and sweet caramel malt. In the glass Celebration raises a nice head with excellent lacing all the way through the glass. Very nice red hue. Taste is initially fruity/sweet but finishes with pine resin, grapefruit rind, and a bit of toasty and toffee-like crystal malt - a perfect balance. The palate is very satisfying and substantial with a cleansing bitterness. Overall, Celebration is a robust and delicious beer that I look forward to every year, and is really the only IPA I get excited about when the weather turns cold.
