Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 355ml Bottle
The start of Celebration season is a festive event. Sierra Nevada can't start brewing until the first fresh hops have arrived, but once they have the season is officially under way! First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honouring everything true to Sierra Nevada.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Mild pine nose. Chewy malts. Earthy resinous flavours with amber spice. Oily mouthfeel. Hop punch faded I reckon. Still tasty.
Very nice brew. Everything you want in a fresh hop ipa.
Awesome - very hoppy but in an unusual way
There's nothing quite like a fresh-hopped ale and no-one does hops like Sierra Nevada. This is definitely worth a try.
Floral hops & pine nose. Silky mouthfeel with light spice. Resinous pine bitter hops finish. Awesome now, would've been brilliant fresh!
Could easily drink this all day long, lots of citrus and fruit with a nice whack of bitterness.
