Great Divide Brewing Barrel Aged Yeti
What the brewers say
"The spirited aging process produces a hugely complex but mellowed Yeti."
What our panel thought
"West Coast hoppy: pine, grapefruit, orange, and lemon rolled into coffee and dark chocolate. Dark malt kicks harder in flavor, with roast dialed up to 11; sweetness fades into hop and roast bitterness with alcoholic warmth. Not much barrel. Hops are nice. America!"
What our editors thought
"Fruity-citrus American hops nose bowls over lighter chocolate and roast. The sip is unassuming, light, "drinkable" despite style expectations. Minimal barrel. Smooth and integrated."
