    ROC Brewing's Kyoto Protocol.

    Horrible yet undrinkable.

    Oskar Blues Gubna. Tried it 3 times, drain poured it 3 times less than halfway in. You do the math ;)

    I was going to ask what he does drink, aside from the obvious.

    Agreed. Sometimes they miss bad but they also have some really fine beer. Back Burner is terrific, even better oak aged....

    Never drinking a Dave again. Cracked one with Rempo and Shagtastic last night; it was way oxidized and was mostly undrinkable*

    *this is based on true events, only the name of the beer has been changed to protect the innocent

    I'm curious about this too.

    One thing that this thread does show how subjective beer is for all of us. It reminds me to alter my wording from "that beer sucks" to "I can't stand that beer." To each their own.

    This was all I could drag up in a very brief Google. I know I read more elsewhere at some point, but sadly I did not hold onto the articles for posterity's sake.

    Also, their jobs page seems to indicate a lack of respect for employees and basic employee needs.

    Shipyard Pumpkinhead. Just had it for the first and last time last night. Given to me by the person whose house I was at and I consumed it so I wouldn't offend this person. It tasted like a light beer filtered through potpourri. The spice and pumpkin was very artificial tasting.

    Well, that does it for me. I've not bought a lot of Rogue and now I'll refrain from buying it at all. Let the union in and I'll reconsider.

    I think ST tends to emphasize malt presence, i.e. they leave beers sweet, and also a lot of their beers come off very, very hot. These things tend to turn off some % of the beer geek community. I have respect for their beers, even if I don't love (or even particularly like) most of them - although I actually really do love Pumking.

    bud light. i tried it once just because i live by the motto "never knock something if you haven't tried it". needless to say dirty dishwater tastes better. though i may have to one day brave another baby sip to tick it on Untappd! :confused:

    It's funny how different each persons pallet is. This is maybe my all time favorite beer.

    This topic was discussed a bit above, but I'll just say Unearthly (the only one you listed that I've had) was way to malt-forward for my palate, not to mention a pretty pricey bomber—as all ST beers seem to be. I'll take a superior, local $5 DIPA over an inferior $9 one shipped across the country anyday.

    Ditto on the Peach Porch Lounger. At best a mediocre beer with a big price to hurt even more. I really do love a lot of the Lips of Faith but New Belgium does a shitty job on Brett brews.

    New Holland Dragon's Milk. I got through about a third of a bomber and dumped the rest. The barrel aging made it taste acrid and really unpleasant. I had heard good things about this beer so I was really disappointed. It's made me reluctant to buy stuff from New Holland at all. Mad Hatter is a decent, sessionable IPA though and I thought the Poet Oatmeal Stout was decent enough, so it isn't like I hate the brewery or have anything against them.

    Because all three are too sweet? ST beers all seem to be sweet, some more than others, but I can understand how some don't like them at all. I love a lot of their stuff (Pumking, Choklat, 2XIPA) but I personally am not a fan of Backburner and not a fan of Unearthly for an everyday DIPA.

    21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon. Tasted like rancid watermelon rind brewed with beer.
    Sam Adams Whitewater IPA. A horrid abomination with a disgusting aftertaste.

    And I also drainpoured New Glarus's Smoked Rye, but I think that's a style thing. Not a rauchbier fan, it turns out.

    Cannot believe no one has said Bud Light Clamato. Yes, tomato, lime, and clam juice in a Bud Light. I have never thrown up so much in my life, and that's counting a bout of food poisoning (and I only had a large sip of it). I absolutely cannot imagine anyone ever buying and liking this beer, but I can surely see it used in forms of torture in Third World countries.

    Oh, and Abita's Southern Pecan. They hit it right on the head in flavor, but I think they used rotted pecans. Horribly disgusting.

    Dang, forgot another one. Abita's 18th Star. Looked like someone peed into a puddle of mud, then bottled it. Tasted no better.
