Dogfish Head started back in the mid 90’s, and the story Sam tells about it is that he entered a pumpkin food contest by brewing a pumpkin beer and it won the whole thing! This beer is truly one of DFHs first and most sought after beers. This is a pumpkin spice beer at 7%. And believe me, this beer does not hang around for long so try it when you can!

This beer pours a rich orange color that touches on red. Very pretty hue, with a foamy off-white colored head.

Aroma is everything you would expect after pulling the lid off a smoke-stained jack-o-lantern with tons of spice. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, all spice…the list goes on. The pumpkin smell isn’t as prevalent on the nose but it’s there.

Flavor is fantastic, there’s just nothing more to it. Lovely spiced flavors mentioned above with a soft pumpkin flavor coming through. Finish is a lingering of the spice. Wow very good. Try it if you can!
