    I love Burton Baton & Bitches Brew. I actually enjoyed the SixtyOne too (thought it was different, but good on a warm night). I have a bottle each of the Palo Santo, 120min, & Immort Ale to try soon too.
    I'm also one of the guys that didn't get any maple at all from the bottle of 75min I had.
     
  6. Palo Santo, Burton, Olde School, 120 WWS and Punkin

    Gotta say, I'm a fanboy. I saw their ill-fated TV show when I was 20 and was like "that's gonna be my first beer." And sure enough I had a Midas Touch and loved it (too complex at the time to fully appreciate though) and then a 90-Minute, then a 60-Minute, etc. Today they aren't my favorite but they hold a place my heart for being the gateway and doing stuff that others won't. Not to mention their logo is iconic

    Just looked at their brewing schedule on their website. I cant understand why their making 120 3x this year while not making Fort wish theyd release Fort instead of 120 in June.
     
  9. 120 min, Estru Ca

    No...it is imo better than those two but not by any means a big enough step up.

  12. an email response from DFH. I opened my 18 month cellared Squall and felt the need to communicate my enjoyment and sadness of it being my last.

    I just tapped a keg of 60 today, my third in the last 7 months. I'd have to say I'm a fan. I also like Aprihop and Festina Peche.
     
  19. 1. Bitches Brew
    2. Palo Santo
    3. Burton Baton
    4. Olde School
    5. 90 Minute

  20. 60 Minute IPA. Always wonderfully hoppy when I drink it. Sure there are better American IPAs out there (including some by Dogfish Head) but 60 Min. is basically my ol' reliable when it comes to IPAs.
     
  21. 120 minute (in no particular order)
    75 minute
    90 minute
    60 minute
    Burton Baton
    Palo Santo
    Squall
    Immort
    WWS
    Brown Ale
    Punkin

    I like many of their offerings though 75 minute and Burton Baton are my absolute favorites. I have a bottle of Hellhound that I will open tonight and try for the first time.

    I think Dogfish Head is hit or miss (with me anyhow), but there are a few of their beers that I really love.

    Palo Santo Marron is probably my favorite, I also really like: 75 Minute IPA, Burton Baton, Noble Rot and Immort Ale. Have not gotten to try World Wide Stout, 120 Minute IPA, and Olde School. (buddies getting those in a trade so I will soon! :))

    Some of my faves are Red & White, 60 and 90 Minute and I really enjoyed Fort, despite how fruity it is.
     
  26. Festina Peché. Thank you DFH, I wish there were more brewers willing to take on berlinerwiess(especially on the scale that DFH does).

  28. So I see people aging the 75 and 120; what about aging a 60? Anyone done it?

    90min, Burton Baton and Bitches Brew are all classics. Would drink them daily.

    As for DFH as a whole, love them or hate them, you have to respect them. They have been and continue to do things in the brewing world that no one else is either smart enough to think of or ballsy enough to try. I'd sit and have a beer and stogie with ole Sam any day of the week.

    Replying to myself, order in for a log of Festina.
     
  32. Palo is always great, a solid choice. could drink 60 all day, but for me nothing beats an aged 120 or WWS...can't wait to see how this years releases hold up after aging...I imagine they will be great as alawys......Big fan...

    His boozy beers are full of fusels and his hoppy beers are too malty, but I guess I liked 75 minute the best.

    The two I enjoyed were World Wide Stout and 120 Minute IPA. The 120 Minute IPA was an interesting one, didn't really taste like an IPA, more sweet quad-ish beer.

    ^ That. Though I also love Bitches Brew, Palo Santo, Indian Brown, and a slew of others, including the grapey ones. My DFH treasure/garbage ratio is probably something like 80/20. Good on them.

    120 was great the one time I had it, as was Immort Ale. I also love Burton Baton and Raison D'Etre. Festina Peche is a great berliner as well, and Palo Santo Marron is solid.

    Burton Baton & Indian brown are pretty much the only DFH of any value......

    90 minute fresh. Palo Santo, Olde School, and 120 with age on them.

    I love 75, but the price deters me from buying them more than once in a blue moon.
