It’s Boxing Day, which calls for a…Holiday IPA? Well, I guess it does! Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. calls Celebration Ale a special holiday ale, and an IPA featuring the first hops of the growing season. I call it the very definition of a classic IPA, with fresh pine scents, and a hoppy bitter middle with some citrus zest and more pine in the finish. Holiday special or not, this is a truly stellar IPA.
I give it a 4.7 out of 5.
