Dogfish Head = Good. Pumpkin Beer (as a whole) = Bad. So you combine a great brewery with an overplayed, cliche, underwhelming genre of beer and you end up with something drinkable and about as good as a pumpkin beer can be.
What Should You Do With It? Drink the Beer
Crisp, clean, sharp, sweet, clear, interesting, drinkable, flavorful, refreshing… Pick a positive beer adjective and it will probably fit. Dogfish is flirting with pilsner perfection.
What Should You Do With It? Praise the Beer
A nice flavored malty IPA that attempts to capture the history of the Grateful Dead in a bottle. Honestly there is a little sinsemilla flavor going on here.
This is a wonderful IPA with a lot of complexity but a smooth and rich drink-ability. It is hard to order something over 60 Minute when it is on tap.
