A: Pours a rough deep bronze that is almost amber in color as you look towards the middle of the body.
S: A very low aroma for a double ipa, yet the pine and grass hops outweigh the deep malt profile
T: Holy crap, i have never tasted anything like this beer. This IPA is unique, complex and brilliant. The grass hop flavor comes through smoothly as a significant oak character shines through hinting towards mellow vanilla and tasty earth (not sure how to put it into words) from the oak chips
M: Zero heat from the alcohol, and easy as hell to drink due to the dry body
O: I absolutely love this beer. It has brought about a new experience for my thoughts on craft beer. Complex, gentle, flavorful and freaking awesome.

Another great year of the anniversary brings great flavor. I think it falls slightly under to the greatness of the 17th Anniversary's, but still very good.
