Sierra Nevada Celebration 2011

Moving on to tonight’s beer, I’m drinking the best beer – the free kind. Someone left this Sierra Nevada Celebration 2011 at my house recently.

This is an American IPA, and a terrific one in my opinion. The hops are fruity and slightly floral, and while the beer packs a pretty good hop-wallop, I don’t find it super-intense. I’m REALLY digging the bitterness, probably because it’s balanced a bit with malty sweetness.

If you’re not familiar with Sierra Nevada, they always make good beer…very few “fails” in their beer library. The Celebration is pretty damn tasty!

  1. The 2011 Celebration is good, but it hits on my issue with Sierra Nevada, I can always tell when I’m drinking one. There is some similarity that I taste through all of their beer styles. It’s not a bad thing, but I won’t go out of my way to purchase them.

    My buddy Brian calls it, “The taste of Chico, CA.”

  2. All Sierra Nevada beers, no matter what the style, share a distinct flavor element that lets me often (sometimes?) identify the brew as an SN product. This is a good thing! It unifies their offerings. Without this unity, you might as well be drinking random beers.
