COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown ale, a bit deeper shade of red than our Raison D’Etre, gently nudged to 7% a.b.v. with beet sugars. Sparingly hopped with Warrior and Liberty hops. The grains we used in the mash include Pils, Wheat, Munich, Coffee, and Crystal. But it’s the ’grain’ we add post-fermentation that makes this beer so special! We started this brew day surfing the Delaware coast with our friends from Maine’s own Grain Surfboards. They use sustainably harvested Maine-grown cedar to shape their boards, and we used it to add pungently, resiny, herbal notes to the finished beer.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Aromas of nuts/chocolate/caramel. Flavor is nutty with a nice sweet honey chocolate taste and a little coffee bitterness.

sample from the pitcher @ GABF on 9/18/10 poured by Sam. murky brown pour with a creamy 1-2 finger off white head. light aromas of cedar and hops. light to medium body with lots of cedar notes, tropical fruit and grapes. sweet grape peel finish. another very unique beer from Dogfish that I’m glad I got to try.... thanks for bringing it to GABF.

Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Really really really murky muted brown color with a cream-colored head. Aroma is kinda sour. Yep, sour. Flavor is... man, this is wacky. It’s kind of musky... I have no idea how to explain this. It’s good, well-crafted, and although it’s wacky and out of any kind of norm, it’s still good... but not great. I’d definitely say this is one interesting beer thanks to the cedar and if you’re looking for something off-centered you can find it here! Good job.
