    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!

    It's the best everyday brew available to mankind! IMHO of course.

    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.

    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!
