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.

Great Divide 18th Anniversary

Appearance: dark amber, medium head, and some good lacing. 4

Smell: apples, caramel, slight oak, and a slight toffee. 4.5

Taste: hops, caramel, slight apple citrus, and a faint oak finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel: medium. 4

Overall:
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.
