Cody’s beer of the week 4/4/12
Great Divide 18th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA 10% A.B.V.
Year to year I patiently wait for Great Divide to release their wood aged IPA, and this year they have really out done themselves. 18 pours a vibrant ruby red with a thin layer of pearly white bubbles, and the most satisfying nose. Aromas of caramel covered hops, vanilla and oak satisfy the senses and prepare the taste buds for the joy that follows. The mouth feel is incredibly smooth and round with a decent amount of carbonation and a sticky/hoppy/oaky finish. Cheers Great Divide! Congratulations on these last 18 years, heres to 18 more! - Cody
