Pennsylvania Tuxedo – Dogfish Head: 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. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.
Confounding at first sip, Penn Tux presents itself as a bone dry, malt laden IPA but then discloses it has daddy issues in the form of spruce and earthy texture but compliments it with some zest in the sack on the citrus peel back end. Oddly enjoyable and unique, this reminds of working on my uncle’s tree farm as a kid. Nostalgia never hurts the score.
