First brewed in 1995 on the day Jerry Garcia Died, and is named after one of his guitars. This complex multi grain ale is made with a blend of ten types of malted barley. The spicy hop character comes from select German and Czech Hops. Served unfiltered to allow maximum flavors for your enjoyment.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is a lot hoppier than I expected it to be. I get a lot of grass, pine and citrus notes. I get a little bit of malt, but the aroma is all about the hops. The flavor is also very hoppy. I get a lot of grass, pine and floral notes, with a little bit of citrus. There is not too much of a malt backbone and the bitterness is about medium. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
