Brew Detective: Celebration Fresh Hop IPA 2019

First Brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale uses fresh hops from the harvest season, delicately balancing the notes of pine and citrus. The malt character is not too sweet, revealing itself visually through an amber hue. Celebration Ale is a bold wintertime classic with recognizable quality. Sometimes I wish this delicious offering was available year round, but that would defeat the purpose. Freshness is reflected through the seasonal celebration of hops each year. Thanks Sierra Nevada for being a pioneer. Craft beer lovers everywhere should raise a glass to the institution from Chico.
