Great Divide Anniversary Wood Double Aged IPA (18th Anniversary)

Appearance: Clear copper body with a thin white covering on top. This reminds me of a barleywine in appearance.
Aroma: Very mild aroma of oak, vanilla, earthy tea, and a very mild English hop presence. This is basically what I was expecting given my experience with Denver Pale Ale and barrel aged beers.
Taste: An earthy and spicy tea intro starts off the beer reminding me a lot of the base beer Denver Pale Ale. The oak comes in the middle and goes through to the finish with a vanilla sweetness. Good balance here, very easy to drink.
Overall: I’m not in love with this, but I don’t dislike it. I’m not a huge fan of the tea flavors that I find in many English beers but the oak gives this a bit of a complexity to this. I wouldn’t buy this again, but it’s worth trying.
