    Ballantine IPA was brewed in various breweries over the years, with different recipes. The ABV and IBUs were said to have gone down over the years. A couple of clone recipes were in IPA by Mitch Steele. There was a beer brewed by Portsmouth Brewing called Clusters Last Stand which followed on of the recipes, but was finished with Columbus hops.

    I finally got around to homebrewing a clone. It is now in the keg for maturation. Will age it then dry hop, should be an interesting experience drinking this one.

    I drink plenty of 80-85 range beers because I need to balance my beer budget, but also because I think a "good" beer is nothing to shy away from. That said, I would rather eat a bucket of chum than a Saranac Caramel Porter, any pumpkin beer (from Pumking to Pumpkinhead), Breckinridge Summer, and Port Jeff Smoked IPA.

    The most overrated beer I'll never drink again is Flat Tire from New Belgium.

    Without a doubt, Atwater Vanilla Java Porter. I've given it a try twice now and each time it just pisses me off.

    Second would be Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer. I mean, come on...really?

    I really hate blue moon and shock top(the other blue moon, I hear everyone call it). Everyone I am around drinks it to death.

    Big Sky - Kriek. Hopefully it was just an infected batch or something, but it honestly tasted like vomit. I never want to experience that taste again.

    Adams Bonfire Rauchbier -- I don't have anything against the style, but this one smells like the remains of a two-day-old house fire. Makes Schlenkerla seem like the Dom PĂ©rignon of bottled beer.
    Shiner Holiday Cheer -- (peaches & pecans) Sweeter fruit adjunct beers are generally OK by me, in moderation of course. This one has the charm of an arrogant high school cheer leader.
    Bells Two Hearted -- If I wanted to drink flowers, I would pour my wife's perfume in a short glass filled with chipped ice.

    no, that's a totally gross beer (not as bad as Rogue Shakespeare Stout but bad); he's right.

    Scratch Sue. Had it again and it was superb. First bottle must have been infected.

    My neighbor drinks it almost exclusively. I could wave my 2011 BCBS under his nose, and he'd go for the 'Dog every time, never understood it. On the other hand, it's a LOT cheaper to supply beer to parties he's invited to....

    Evil Twin The Cowboy. The bottle sports a very hip-looking label that hides the vile swill inside. A smoked pilsener, it's hard to tell what wood was used; either old shipping pallets or cheap particle board furniture.

    Southern Tier Harvest was pretty bad, too.

    DFH Tu Henket; supposedly it's very realistic as an Egyptian beer, but a fishy beer doesn't appeal to my palate.

    The worst two beers I've ever had were DFH Ta Henket, and Shorts Raisin Apollo. The latter tasted like pea soup, and the former was reminiscent of steeped gym socks.

    Add Southern Tier's Creme Brulee to that list. It tastes like eating a vanilla scented Yankee candle.

    While PtE was pretty amazing, I was really disappointed in Heady Topper (not that it's terrible). I guess I'm fortunate to live in Michigan and have access to tons of amazing beer.

    PtY is mine as well for similar reasons. I was living out in Bend, OR in 2010 and just happened to live up the hill from the now long gone Abbey Pub. The sixtel of PtY lasted the first night and into the next afternoon and I was able to enjoy four glasses over that time. I would put the chances of me ever living within walking distance of a quiet PtY tapping again at about 0%.

    Cave Creek Chili Beer. Tastes like a flat Corona spiced up with a very hot chili pepper... so spicy hot that it burns your lips with every sip. I have had maybe 20,000 beers in my life and this one was my absolute worst experience.

    Sam Adams Triple Bock
    Tactical Nuclear Penquin
    Sink the Bismark,

    and respectfully, and while I love most Dogfish Head brews and respect the hell out of Sam, perhaps the worst thing I've ever tasted,.....
