Bottle share thanks to Toby. Slightly sour aroma hints at the rye backbone, orange/copper pour. Mild, slick, slippery, finishes quick, but tasty. DFH can do so much better....

hard to ignore this bottle if you're a Dead fan- esp on the heels of the 50th anniversary tour. props to Dogfish for providing a great brew to celebrate the band.
you can really taste the unique ingredients which makes it great. it's a balanced sipper (tulip glass), not too hoppy and higher abv. enjoy this on a beautiful day with Scarlet-Fire playing.
