    Best: Prairie Bomb! ... Holy shit man. On tap, it was probably the best beer I've ever had. Out of the bottle it was a bit less amazing, but still a top 5 stout for me.

    Worst: G'Knight from Oskar Blues... Breaks my heart to say it, because I love Ten Fiddy, Little Yella, and Old Chub. This beer was astringent and terribly balanced. A red ale shouldn't just taste like a hop mouthbomb, it should have yeast and sweet characteristics too. Very one note and wrecked my pallate. I also had high expectations given BA's ratings of the beer.

    Namaste is really a shameful chapter in Dogfish Head's brewing legacy. That beer is dreadful. Could barely finish my tiny 12 oz pour.

    Yeah agreed. The Enjoy By was fantastic that batch. I think is was clever of them to make it on 7.04 as a way to drink it on July the 4th. And Not Your Father's is to me just a dessert thing or something as an "ingredient" for a mix drink.

    Best: 1)Last Buffalo in the Park. 1a)Fuzzy Baby Ducks

    Worst: Don't Tell Reese at the Funky Buddha super sunday beer release or whatever it was called. was looking forward to this beer for a long time, and i guess this was a bad batch because it tasted like a liquid version of a dog's rawhide chew toy. smokey and leathery. how does that happen with a chocolate peanut butter beer?

    Best: Citra Showers, White Rajah, Kook, City of the Dead, Naughty Sauce
    Worst: Mission Hard Root Beer (it wasn't terrible but was really heavy on the spices; with a few tweaks they could probably make it a lot better), 8 Wired Wild Feijoa Sour (tasted like a sour with trident mint gum added)

    I'm not trying to change your opinion but it is classified as a DIPA on this site and the label says 'Imperial Red IPA'.
