no & no more info don't need any more competition !!!
shit thats hard.
1) Ta Tenket - I loved the toasted bread crust character
2) Raison d'Extra
3) Chateau Jiahu
Drinking a 120 right now, by far my favorite!
Wishing I hadn't passed on Aprihop this year. Maybe I can still find a bottle. 90 is a classic, but I love 75 minute and Burton Baton. I have yet to try 120 because the ABV limit in GA is 14%.
After reading this thread I'm kicking myself for passing over the Palo Santo. Although I don't regret getting the Aprihop and 61. Both good beers in my opinion.
Palo Santo Marron. Just had it and it blew my mind. Such clear barrel flavors. Never had anything like it.
I loved 120 on tap, Burton is an all time fav, dug Sa'Tea, Palo Santo was good, WWS was one of the best I've ever had. Ta Henket was terrible, didn't care for Midas touch. Sitting on bottles of Etrusca, Theobroma, Noble Rot, Bitches Brew and Rhizing Bines. I will always pick up a DFH beer that is new to me. They might not always be great, but they are always different.
Palo Santo, Hellhound, Bitches Brew, Olde School and Burton Baton I thought were top-notch. I enjoy most of what DFH brews, but those have to be my favorites. Used to love Festina Peche before they dialed back the tartness. Almost undrinkable the last two years.
Only tried two - Palo Santo and Aprihop. Both outstanding.
Man, it seems like there are a lot of DFH haters out there these days, but it's finally nice to see a thread where everyone agrees that this is, in fact, a fantastic brewery.
I could drink IBA all day. I love that shit.
Haven't tried enough that I want yet but of the beer's I have had.
& Midas Touch
I would say 90, 75, and palo santo marron are my favs, I've pretty much enjoyed everything I've tried from them, any time I see something I haven't had from them I always pick it up, haven't been let down from them, great brewery.
I received a response that Squall is not gone forever. Simply on hiatus this year.
DFH remains my fave. Always have some 120 stashed away. Burton Baton my 1st love. BB is amazing. Always forget about IBA then recall how solid when I grab one. Best part of my beach trip is enjoying the current chalkboard beers, sipping on 120, and quaffing Johnny Cask.
75 great example of bottle conditioning
I'm a big fan of 60 minute.
I know that is not the beer that gets all the attention , but it is one beer I always have on hand and always enjoy.
Palo Santo; nothing else close, though they make a lot of damn good beers. Found the Chateau Jiahu (sp?) to be surprisingly good as well...
And who did you hear the squall response from?
Palo Santon is very good.
Bitches Brew is very good
I liked "Golden Era" rather well.
Their IPAs are awful though, 60 is ok but they range from OK (60 and Hellhound) and then go to god awful why is my beer sugar coated sugar syrup with so few hots it is a wine, Squall!
I'd say drink within 2 weeks of release or drain pour, but everyone has a different view.
Burton baton is amazing. I normally dont buy DFH but picked up 12, 120 minutes today. Dealer gave me a 10% break. wahoo!!! Never tried 120, why do you say pour it out after 2 weeks? seriously?
Bought a 6pack of aprihop. WOw, this beer is disgusting.
Wow, that is really going all in on a drink that is quite expensive and really a hate it or love it type deal. Hope you like it. I made beer bread with mine. However, it was fine on tap at the brewery.
60 minute, Aprihop, and Indian Brown easily my favorites.
My favorite: Palo Santo, hands down.
Most of their stuff is good, and always interesting. Midas Touch and Sixty One are the only two I've really disliked.
60 minute was one of my first craft beers, so it always has a soft spot in my heart. 90 is always a good time.
In my more recent DFH, I love Aprihop and 61.
Where did you hear about squall. It's now been on hiatus for 2 years. Miss it!
Dogfish Head is probably my favorite brewery. Top three from DFH right now are:
Fort (really need to find a bottle of this)
A 50/50 120 on the bottom with World Wide Stout on top is really good too.
WW Stout, 60 min IPA, wife likes the pumpkin and aprihop.
All DFH beers have a secret ingredient.. HYPE!
Once the tops are no longer strong enough you're left with a crazy sweet boozy mess. When the beer still has the hops at their best it's pretty good. Also each batch radically changes as the abv has gone from 15-23% (I know I had a keg that the dogfish rep said it was like 15.6 and I *think* I saw where a bottle was 23, if not then 21%) and with that abv change the beer also dramatically changes. So each batch is completely different imo, but if the hops aren't impressively forward imo it just isn't that good, and at ~10 a bottle it better be THAT GOOD.
Burton Baton is my favorite.
90 Minute IPA
75 Minute IPA
Did you like Nobel Rot? That is rather similar to those two.
Burton Baton. Palo Santo Marron.
Chicory Stout for me, wish it came as a six. Indian Brown, Palo Santo, Raison & Midas Touch have been repeat purchases as well.
Burton Baton, 120 or Olde Scool (with 2+ years of age), and FRESH 60 or 90' anytime! And everyone should try an aged Fort once. Maybe not twice, that's your call.
