3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Kahootz: Brown with tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma of furniture polish with a sour, musty flavor and maybe some figs thrown in for good measure. Itís ok, not my favorite for a strong ale.

Reddish brown pour with a decent amount of off-white head. Digginí the aroma - nice balance of citrus/pine hops and caramel malt. Flavor is balanced as well but a bit disappointing - slightly sweet and bitter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A-pours a dark mahogony colored beer with a very loose small bubbly tan colored head.
S-the nose has some roasted malts, a little overly sweet caramel, very sticky hop resign aroma, pine sap, wood, oily citrus in the back.
T-the taste is similar, slightly burnt wood and malt, overly sweet caramel, very resignous, lots of sugars left behind and it shows in the feel as well. very piney in the back with sticky citrus notes and moderately bitter.
M-the feel is a little fuzzy with the residual sugars, the finish is nice, it is rather dry and crisp, well carbonated.
D-not bad, has some flaws. overly sugary and sweet with a ton of sticky malts and hops. has a decent balance and a nice finish.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Dark copper color. Smells spicy. Sweet winter pine and potpourri. Taste has a fair amount of spice with the hot finish of spice. Dries a bit on the finish but altogether not bad.

Poured a deep, dark brown with a wispy head. No where near the profile of a SN Celebration, so I donít even knwo why they refrence that in the CD.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a beautiful dark copper color with a nice brown head. Didnít really appeal to my palate as it was too hoppy. This was my 200th beer Iíve rated and was hoping for a better one. Actually probably rated this one too high for my tastes...

Bottle from Utah Liquor Store. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. A slight pine note on the tongue. Not much on the tongue. Finishes clean. Really quite boring.

Pours amber brown with creamy beige head and foamy lacing. Smells strongly of a pine forest. Tastes strongly of a pine forest. This is not classifed as an IPA, but the aroma and taste say othewise.
