Looks good, feels good, but a bit tart, almost snappy, on the taste-good side. A solid ale though if you don't like the malty, thick normal holiday seasonal ale. Good content for a fun time ale and a good color. Makes good conversation --- one of a kind holiday pale ale perhaps?

The aroma was not one I could pick up. The head was white and light as it slowly dewindled over a very nice amber color releasing bubbles sparingly. At first, it was harsh but as it warmed some of the harshness left. Light bitter after taste. Great looking beer.

Nice and rich but not cloying. Bitter end fades the further into it you go. In the end, hops coming mostly from the smell. An interesting and refreshing little beer.

2003 - rich copper color, nice spicy nose. hoppy all over, a little more malt would seem more appropriate for the holidays.

A celebration indeed! This has that distinct bitter flavor that the pale ale of the same brewery does, but even more of that wonderful alcohol!

Just your standard IPA. Hops with some mild malt undertone. Unexciting. Since I don't like the style it scores low for me.

Very nice color and pretty head with nice lacing. Flavor is dominated by hops but has a nice malt undertone. A good sip.

What happens when you take a great pale ale and add more malt and hops to get an IPA? It's time for a celebration! Bottle (1999).

Another great brew from Sierra Nevada. They are definitely one of my favorite brewing companies. Nice ruby/copper pour with a frothy, lacing head. True to Sierra Nevada, the hops spring out of the glass. Deep hoppy flavor, with a hint of bitterness at the end. Very good beer.

(Draught) Medium, white head and copper body. High hops! Grapefruit with a lasting bitterness. Very good.
