I have to say first thing, that this beer is WAY too expensive. I understand that the conditions under which it was made dictate a higher than normal price, but $26 for an 11.2 ounce bottle that bears a striking similarity to Sierra Celebration is ridiculous.

A:Pours a medium amber with a thin, tight head.Minimal lacing.

S. Smells like a dry, lightly citric,floral, well-balanced IPA. Nothing mind-blowing.

T: Very nice. Sticky, bracing hoppiness. Lightly sweet caramel malts and touches of pine. A little bit of soft oak. Well balanced.

M: Chewy, effervescent carbonation. Medium bodied.

D: I would drink a lot of this if it weren't obscenely overpriced. I don't think hanging the barrels off the side of a fishing boat for a few months added much of anything to the beer's character. As much as I appreciate the inventiveness and initiative of Brewdog, their beers have always been just okay, and too expensive.
