Sierra Nevada Celebration IPA

A Hoppy Winter Warmer

From the Sierra Nevada Website : "The long, cold nights of winter are a little brighter with Celebration Ale. Wonderfully robust and rich, Celebration Ale is dry-hopped for a lively, intense aroma. Brewed especially for the holidays, it is perfect for a festive gathering or for a quiet evening at home."

Sierra Nevada Celebration is a very great combination of a rich, holiday style beer and the hoppiness of a west-coast style IPA.
