Pangaea by Dogfish Head

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Here is to hoping everyone out there is enjoying a nice day with family, friends or whoever you typically spend this day with.  The weather, at least in NJ, has cooperated lets just hope my Cowboys do the same and put a smack down on the Dolphins, who all of a sudden look unstoppable.

Beer #361 comes to me from Milton, Delaware by way of Dogfish Head.  Let me introduce Pangaea, a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with an ABV of 7%.  Pangaea as you may or may not know, was the super-continent that existed 250 million years ago and eventually broke apart to form the current continents.  Cool stuff…

Into my Cowboys pint glass went this clear amber liquid and sitting atop that was a nice sized off-white head.  Can you say ginger?  That familiar aroma was quite evident in the nose so much so it even conveyed the spiciness of that awesome root.  Me personally, I love ginger so this smelled really good to me. There were other spices at work here also…coriander and black pepper came to mind for sure.  I picked up on that familiar Belgian yeast thing too along with bread.  There was quite a lot going on here in the nose.  I took a sip…wow…nice and spicy just like the nose suggested.  The ginger was mixed with what I thought was a bit of a white grape like flavor.  It had a very light cinnamony finish and aftertaste to it.  This moderately bitter brew had a medium body leaning a bit towards heavy.  It was quite slick feeling in the mouth.

This was another delicious beer.  Your mileage may vary since I know ginger isn’t everyone’s thing.  I loved the spiciness and bitterness that the ginger lent to this.

Again…Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!  Oh yeah…lets go Cowboys!!!

And then there were 4…
