Beer # 83 Great Divide 15th Anniversary Wood Aged DIPA

Great Divide 15th Anniversary Wood Aged DIPA

Name: 15th Anniversary Wood Aged Double IPA

Style:  Double IPA

Brewery: Great Divide Brewing Co.  website

Country: USA

Region:  Denver, Colorado

ABV: 10.00% Abv

How served: 22oz foiled capped bottle poured into a Maredsous glass.       

My Overall Opinion: Amazing.

I paired this beer with: Left over homemade vegetarian lasagna. Very good Paring, but not as good as with the Belgium Strong Pale Ale I had with it yesterday.

Tasted on:  Tuesday March 9th, 2010. 

Note:  Limited & brewed only once for their 15th Anniversary.  I can only hope they revisit this beer again for their 20th anniversary beer, or sooner.  This is a Malty DIPA if there is such a thing.   Maybe it is because this was bottled on July 27, 2009 and the hops have faded, but never the less this is a mighty fine drinking beer, especially at 10% abv. 

On the Label &  From their website: Based on our most award-winning beer, Denver Pale Ale, this copper-hued treat is a celebration of everything Great Divide does best. Plenty of malty sweetness provides a backdrop for earthy, floral English and American hops, while French and American oak round off the edges and provide a touch of vanilla. Thanks to everyone who’s supported us  for the last 15 years – here’s to 15 more! 10.0% ABV.

Food Pairing : Bacon & blue cheese hamburger, barbecue ribs, Point Reyes blue cheese, sticky toffee pudding, caramel cheesecake.
