Great Divide 17th Anniversary

This was brought to my last beer tasting night but we didn't get a chance to open it. Since it's been sitting in my fridge since then I figured I'd finally give it a try. The 17th Anniversary is a wood aged double ipa.
Smelled good. Grapefruit and a sweet caramel with a little bit of wood. Starts with grapefruit, caramel, vanilla and what I felt like was chocolate but the last was probably my imagination. As I drank more, some oak characteristics stated to come out and added a nice dimension to the hops and caramel sweetness. Pretty tasty and really easy to drink. Quite enjoyed this.
