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.

A: Nice amber to caramel color, mild haze but bottle was about 18 months old. Nice cream colored head.
-- Label is nicely done with more a " classic wine" bottle look, simple and eloquent. It is hard on initial look to find brewer.

S: Initial heavy malt smell with a hind a sweetness. Typical hoppy smell with fresh hops was not as heavily appreciated

T: Mellowed out malt and hops with a aftertaste of of earthy tones and oak. Finishes slightly sweet. Typical heavy hop bitterness is not appreciated. Vert nicely done

M: Silky and finishes smoothly

O: Nicely done beer. The bitterness of fresh hopped IPA is tempered by the wood aging.
