18th Anniversary Wood-Aged IPA
By bensbrew | Published: May 25, 2012
Ahhhh, the taste of rarity. We here at the Monk’s Kettle have received what may
very well be the only keg of Great Divide’s 18th Anniversary Wood-Aged IPA in all of
California. But don’t get too hung up on exclusivity; let the liquid do the talking. This
beer is delicious.
Tapped for Monday’s Great Divide beer dinner, you too can now enjoy the tasty
wares of Denver, Colorado’s most respected brewery.
Our chef, Adam Dulye calls this “one of the top three double IPAs I’ve ever had,” and
for good reason. Complex but balanced, this beer won’t rip apart your taste buds.
The considerable hoppiness is complemented by the tannins and woody flavors
associated with four months of aging on French and American oak chips, and the
caramel maltiness goes a long way towards offsetting any abrasive flavors in this
massive beer. Hop bitterness and a pleasant alcohol warmth dries out the beer’s
finish, leaving a dangerously drinkable dose of deliciousness in every glass. Look for
flavors of caramel, oak, grapefruit and black currant.
