The Details

The start of Celebration season is a festive event. Once the first fresh hops arrive from harvest, the party begins! We first brewed Celebration in 1981, blazing the path for American-style IPAs and offering a new take on holiday beers, which are often spiced and sweet. Famous for its citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops—honoring everything we have at Sierra Nevada.

“One of the true classics.”

A moment to reflect.
As a craft beer supernerd, a common point of conversation is centered around the beer that flipped my switch from casual to centric. When put on the spot, I am terrible at answering that question. ‘Heady Topper?’ ‘Green?’ ‘Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA?’ All relevant pieces of my personal beer journey, admittedly. But the spark that truly started the fire? Here it stands. The Celebration Ale from sierranevada. The first beer I ever loved so much that I would buy it to the exclusion of all others, for the limited period of time that I could.
This is the beer that paved my path as a beer-lover. It was a beer I near-worshipped ten years ago. It still holds strong today. Happy Friday, and thanks for reading (if you did). What was YOUR first game changing beer? And have you had it recently?

Первое впечатление от аромата - пельменный бульон с перцем, лаврушкой и другими специями. Дал понюхать жене, сказала, что бульон от холодца)). Дрожжи поработали на славу, дали кучу характерных эфиров. Плюс специи. Сладко, кисло, финал сухой. Получилось хорошо и интересно, но не мое. Больше брать не буду. "Keep you heart boiling".

I had this beer just after Christmas last year ;  it really wasn't doing it for me. I assume this would be better fresh.

Cheers everyone ! 🍻🙌👍 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Baron Score : 🎳 🎳 🎳 ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ 3.5 ▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪

ABV6.8% IBU65です。

シトラスに松の強い香りがします✨

グレープフルーツにタンジェリン、松のフレーバーにモルトの甘味も感じられて、その後にはホップの鮮烈な苦味がやってきて美味しかった😄

柑橘系のフルーティーな余韻が良くてドライな飲み心地のIPAでした😊🍺✨ .

SierraNevada CELEBRATION ALE
フレッシュホップを使ったシエラネバダのシーズナルIPAです!✨
香りはシトラス、松、それにモルトの甘さとほんのりとスパイシーな香りが!
味わいはグレープフルーツピールのような渋みを伴う苦味!でもそれほど強くありません!モルトの甘味もしっかり感じるので、バランスがいいです!!
フレッシュホップのお陰か、苦味は強すぎず爽やか!モルトの甘味もあり、飲み疲れしないIPAになってます!ん〜!美味しい!!🍺✨

Review 306 - Celebration Ale - Sierra Nevada - India Pale Ale - ABV 6.8% - You know, with almost every beer you try, you have some kind of pre-decided notion in your head. Sometimes it's based on the label, sometimes by the style or the brewery it self. Nowadays, very much from social medias like Instagram or Facebook. Then you try it, and depending on what kind of expectation you had, it kinda messes up your judgement - sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. With this beer, one that I´ve had several times before, but not from this years batch (or 2014 rather) I had low expectations. -"Why?". Well, I haven't been that impressed by it, that's all. I think it's too anonymous and not that tasty and hoppy. But this time around, with low expectations and all, it tipped over in the other direction, I was instantly happy from the first sip. Strange, huh? Each beer has its own time, and depending on mood, expectations and location things can change pretty fast. Aroma is a little hoppy but mainly leaning towards the maltier side with flowers and pine on top. The taste is medium bitter and it is a little thick in the mouthfeel. There is taste notes from sweet apricots and pine oil mixed with all kinds of darker berries and fruits. The finish is pleasant and comes with very mild spices. Now I regret that I only bought one of them. Strange... strange days indeed. 7.4/10 #sierranevada #celebrationale #indiapaleale #beerporn #beergasm #instabeerofficial #instabeer #beersofinstagram #fortheloveofbeer #beerpics #thebeernation #properpour #hopmaestro ...
