Twelfth Beer of Christmas 2018: Dogfish Head Pennsylvania Tuxedo
On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Dogfish Head's Pennsylvania Tuxedo!
Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.
Pennsylvania Tuxedo's complex flavors and spruce essence marry well with jarlesberg and sharp cheddar cheese. This brew also makes a terrific pairing with many seasonal meals, including smoked salmon, smoked meats, wild game, big crusty breads.
Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a spruce-infused Pale Ale, which pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA. This brew is a host of bold aromas and flavors of spruce, orange, and citrus zest, with balanced bitterness and a resiny finish.
The ABV is 8.5%.
