7 reviews

Pale Ale - American | 6.5% ABV

Commercial Description: 

In 2013, we released American Beauty, a collaboration with the Grateful Dead. Dogfish Head and the Grateful Dead both built their followings by connecting directly with their fans, so we asked those loyal fans to help drive the beer’s recipe. After more than 1,500 ingredient suggestions, granola came out on top!

This year, American Beauty is back for an encore! Clocking in at 6.5% ABV (to mark the year the Grateful Dead was formed, 1965), this psychedelic pale ale is brewed with granola and succulent wildflower honey, and boasts malty and sweet notes of honey, toasted grain and citrus. After one taste of American Beauty, there will be nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile!

Very good

I enjoyed it very much. Flavorful and not too heavy in the stomach. Paired very well with the sesame chili chicken we made for dinner.

Smooth flavor!

I don't normally like IPAs because they generally taste bitter to me. It's my understanding the Dogfish Head American Beauty (Grateful Dead Beer) is an IPA but it had a smooth pleasant summer taste.

Outstanding IPA!

I bought this for an old friend I used to go to Grateful Dead shows with. I don't particularly go for IPAs, so I haven't tried it, but he said it was absolutely delicious and representative of its name - 'American Beauty'! He was eternally 'grateful' for the gift!

Very Tasty

It was not the flavor profile I expected. Flavors of pine & citrus, tempered by the granola and honey. Crisp/hoppy English style ale. Very satisfying with a unique taste.
