Sorry but that DIPA DFH glass is just beyond ugly
I use my duvel glass for just about every beer i drink at home, just feels right
I switch more or less randomly between a basic imperial nonic and a Duvel tulip for most all the beers I drink and the difference I notice between them is so minimal that I sometimes wonder if people are allowing their imaginations to run away with them when insisting on "proper" glassware.
"I'd like a single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man's hat."
I thoroughly enjoy mine as well.
This makes me sad. The best beer bar in my town serves everything in pint glasses :-/
Best glassware for stout? = snifter
Best glassware for IPA? = snifter
Best glassware for pilsner? = snifter
Best glassware for sours? = snifter
Seriously, I just use my snifter(s) and teku(s) for everything I drink.
That's my favorite glass
Oh no, please don't hand me that pint of BCBS.
Said no one ever.
I like this type of "Belgian" style glass. It gets your nose in there for every sip and forces you to really smell the beer.
I use my Founders snifter for doubles and bigger beers.
Double IPA is best served at breakfast time in a cereal bowl with barley and hops. And don't let that shit float around long enough to get soggy.
For DIPA's the only appropriate glassware, in my opinion, is either a short-stemmed tulip/snifter or a teku. Drinking a DIPA out of a pint glass is for those that don't know any better. I haven't tried the IPA glasses from Sierra Nevada/DFH, yet.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
Agreed. It's super ugly. But I'm not going to knock its utility without having tried it. Honestly though, on the topic of this thread, I notice a serious difference in aromatics when using a a tulip or goblet or red wine glass when I drink. And it doesn't matter what style of beer–they all smell better!
I thought the glass didnt look too great in pictures online but in person I love it. Don't knock it till you try it and see it for yourself, it doesnt look as awkward in front of you.
Same. I use My Teku for everything, with a snifter on some occasions.
It's a great glass. Don't waste your time trying to educate the pleebs.
Snifter/Tulip/Blah blah blah
To me, glassware shape is about as important as speaker wire in a home theater system. Take that however you want.
Agreed! The nicer the wire, the better I can smell my music.
Cool, so you agree that spending exorbitant amounts of money on high end materials is dumb and makes little to no difference in 99.9% of circumstances?
But you also probably agree that you won't get much sound at all trying to shove that SPDF into that banana plug.
You opened the analogy can of worms sir!
Pretty much all of the DIPAs I have go in the Maudite tulip, because the glass kicks ass.
I'd be giving myself away if I said that terminal connectors =\= speaker cables.
That's audio cable, not speaker wire
Thats why I think my wiring cost more than the receiver.
I really like the new DFH glasses, but I feel like I am going to break it every time I use it. Used to drink everything out of the bottle/can, but noe everything goes in a glass. I still go to my Piraat Tulip for all of my hoppy beers (or the DFH if I feel like being careful)
BMC drinkers might use a coffee cup for their beer....
why is it that the wine world, have so many different glasses for their varieties ?
Is it marketing ? does it really make a difference ? to each his own right ? i grew up thinking that a nice deep red wine with heavy legs HAD to be drunken with a big rimmed bowl like goblet.. and white wines, were in the flute like shape glasses.. can you tell the difference in what glass you drink it out of ? what's important is, if it matters to YOU... i can't drink coffee out of a glass coffee mug, and only a ceramic because i have it in my head it tastes different.. lol... same thing with beer and wine... we choose to place importance on things we want to be important in our lives.. I love my IPA's in the new Sierra Nevada glasses... but if i'm drinking it with my dad who loves beer when we fish at 6am, I love it even better out of a thermos.. because i'm in the moment with my beer and circumstance... so in short.. everyone has an opinion, and it doesn't make it wrong or right, but it does make it important to the one drinking it..... respect beer... its that easy...

Bah its late and my Enjoy by bomber and Celebrator have gotten the best of me
People need to stop making these glassware threads Duvel tulip is always the right answer.
I agree completely, and love the analogy.
holy ellipsis. true though.
I really like the snifter shape for about everything. The short stem allows you to keep your hands off it or to wrap it if you want to warm it up, and the mouth is wide enough to get your nose into but tightened enough that it seems to concentrate the aroma.
A regular "upright" Belgian style tulip wouldn't be my first choice, but if I were the bartender I certainly wouldn't argue with a paying customer. I usually drink my DIPAs from a short stemmed tulip/snifter similar to what has been shown in previous posts. The New Belgium globe is also an excellent choice and it goes towards charity when you buy a pair of them around the holidays.
what the dude said ...
... I love the standard tulip that came in my cheap 6-pack of beer glasses from Target. And you can laugh at me if you like, but the pilsener in that set is cool, too. But for DIPAs, the Target tulip or my Triple Karmelit big tulip.
Try a glass designed for Wheat beers, I drink all my DIPAS from one.
In unrelated news, a dive on the LES in NYC served me a bottle of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout WITHOUT a glass. The bartender had an incredulous look on her face when I politely asked for a glass. In the end, she handed me a Delirium Tremens snifter (which, no, I did not steal).
I either use a chalice or a pint glass for almost everything...my nose feels claustrophobic in a tulip glass.
For DIPAs, I usually go with a Chimay chalice.
I have a set of 20 oz sniffers I picked up. These are my go to for almost everything.
