Hi! Aimee again! Celebration is a winter seasonal from Sierra Nevada out of California coming in at 6.8% ABV. Pours a nice amber with a cream head. Has a strong aroma of piney hops. This tastes seriously of dry bitter hops with an earthy undertone and not much malt for balance. I found this one to be astringently bitter and that bitterness stays on the tongue long after finishing. Even for a hop head like me, this was a bit much for the palate. Overall though, being a "Fresh Hop Ale" and using Chinook hops for bittering, I can see where this could be a wonderful beer for those who really like that piney, bitter Chinook bite. I'll give it 3 out of 5. Average.
