I'm a sucker for the name. Having gotten into the Grateful Dead not a year ago, when I saw this, well... Like the Zappa releases from Lagunitas.. Those were some great beers. So, this must be the same right? It was pricey in a state where ya gotta buy a case, so when I came home to Clevo, I bought one to try.

Poured a bit on the murky dark orange side with little lace and head. Smells of grapefruit and orange and a bit of sweet. Went down with only hints of bitter. Slight foam formed. A bigger swig produced the bitter I was expecting, but balanced and light.

There is tar, grapefruit and orange. Dry and crisp. There is a candy like ending. Dare I say this was a refreshing IPA? Session? They nailed that one. With all the flavor and a low APV... It's a treat.

Aroma is floral, resiny, dank, and flecked with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, and mango. Fairly complex. Fruity and dank hops are in balance, dominating the aroma.

Flavor is more resiny at the base, with a light toasted malt backbone and a moderately bitter finish. Dank cannabis, grapefruit, and tangerine rule the profile. Nice balance of bittering and flavoring hops.
