Punkin' Ale 2017
I grabbed a bottle of this year's Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale to check out. I usually only grab one or two pumpkins a year, so this one hasn't been featured here for a while.
Anyway, Dogfish apparently ended their annual artist series that usually accompanies their seasonal beers including this one. I say "apparently" because I've asked them about that with crickets on the reply (and this is October and their third seasonal, trust me I've asked more than once). Weird considering my Dogfish Head art shrine and additional fun contests surrounding their label art! Oh (fucking) well!
Pumpkin aroma, sweet, rich with a hefty dose of cinnamon. I like it. Rich flavors with brown sugar, a little nutty. Spices not overdone, cinnamon, nutmeg. Earthy pumpkin at the finish. 7% alcohol. 28 IBU
