For 27 years the brewers of Sierra Nevada have produced some amazingly good beers. Topping the list is their monumental Celebration Ale, which ages like a fine wine (for a 10th of the price); what’s more, their aptly dubbed Anniversary Ale joins this grand list of epic beers with its pleasantly hoppy signature IPA bite complemented by a fine citrus and slight piney taste. Its hop nose with subtle malts and few bubbles producing a fine lacing invites the beer drinker to taste what is arguably the handiwork of poets. This beer has a wonderful hoppy backdrop that actually comes alive over time; indeed, drinking this beer at slightly colder than room temperature yields a wonderful drinking experience that leaves you searching for another bottle (after another) to imbibe.
The Anniversary Ale is a grand achievement for a fabulous assortment of beers produced by a team of brewers capable of epic feats. Brew on! I will drink and be merry!
