    How DFH Palo Santo isn't in everyone's top 5 is beyond me! It's damn near a perfect beer! Delicious, easy drinking, and even better... easy to find.

    Uinta anything. Hop Notch is a very nice IPA. Cockeyed might be the best Bourbon Barrel Barleywine that nobody knows about - stuff sits on shelves year round. Other nice beers as well.

    This is exactly why I go on this forum, Mr. Thickfreakness! Total Wine has four packs for 12.99, :) packing serious heat at 12%, 50 ibu, aged in paraguayan wood barrels; I'm gonna take your advice and seek it out. Thanks much!

    Prob my favorite DFH beer, but its not barrel aged. The tank is made of wood. That's unique - but kind of like mild wood chip aging opposed to the potency of a barrel. Great beer.

    Maybe if every bottle didn't look like it was three inches deep in yeast vomit, I'd revisit it more often. I'm okay with sediment, but Mongo bottles I have seen look disgusting. On tap, it's really good though.

    Interesting. I had never experienced that until recently, and I thought that it was just an old bottle.

    I agree. I had FP couple years back and it made no real impression, ok I guess. Then I read all these posts comparing it to ZD. I have drank an untold amount of ZD. So I went out found a fresh single of FP, did a side by side and its laughable. Not comparable in the slightest. I'm not impressed with a lot of FFF beer but ZD is a legend. Easily my favorite pale.

    Or one could ask: Which beer do you like that is not hyped-up?

    Widmer Rotator IPA series and Drifter Pale Ale. Affordable beers all around. Drifter is a very good pale ale and the rotator series is pretty cool in that a large brewery is willing to mix it up. Not all of them are great, but I really liked Falconer's and Shaddock.

    +1 on Shed IPA. My local bar in Brighton has it on tap a lot and it's very good. Was actually drinking it over Celebration one night.
    -1 on Old Thumper. Booooo!
