    I really enjoyed Noble Rot and I am pretty sure a crushed three or four 4-packs of Punkin Ale last year.

    Neither should you since they're 10% and 12% ABV. I agree though, those two are the best I've bad.

    Then comes Indian Brown and 90.

    World Wide Stout and 120 are up next.

    Chickory Stout is not only my favorite Dogfish Head beer, it's my favorite beer of all, right now.

    Indiana Brown Ale is a super duper beer. I love Dogfish Head beers, but they don't sell them in Indiana. I have to cross the Ohio Moat and go to Louisville to buy these beers.

    I attended a DFH tasting recently that featured around 15 DFH beers including Burton, Bines, 90min, Aprihop, and many others. I tried all 15 and I can honestly say I didn't like any of them, not a singly one. They all seemed too watery and like they were going for too much complexity, and I really wanted to like them.

    Namaste and Hellhound on My Ale all day long. I'll buy those pretty much anytime I see them fresh.

    Outstanding Beers (8): 90, Squall, Sah-Tea, Immort, Aprihop, Black & Blue, Palo Santo, Bitches Brew
    Good Beers (11): 60, 75 (on cask), Shelter Pale, Punkin, Worldwide, Red & White, Burton, Olde School, Chicory, Fort, Raison
    OK Beers (8): 120 (only with at least a year's age on it), 61, Midas, Theobroma, Namaste, Saison du BUFF, Hellhound, My Antonia
    Godawful Beers (7): Faithfull, Chateau Jiahu, Pangaea, Black & Red, Indian Brown, Festina Peche, Tweason'ale

    All of the big collabs ranged from good to OK in this order (hi-low): Poppaskull, Wrath of Pecant, Life & Limb, Popskull, Rhizing Bines (ripoff)

    I could name many brewpub exclusive beers that were awesome (DFH Ale, Wet Hop American Summer, Zeno) but most were just one-offs and don't necessarily count. Also, I've had little tastes on-tap of Noble Rot (was OK, just tasted like Midas), Ta Henket (Just tasted like full-on wheat) and Positive Contact (pretty good but I didn't get any cider out of it).

    There's nothing as thrilling as 120. It's my dream that my grandchildren will live in a world where 120 is available year round and from coast to coast.

    90, burton baton and indian brown are decent, loved a galaxy black IPA that I had at the brewpub.

    Rhizing Bines was a disappointment, especially at the $13 or $14 price tag I bought it at. I'm done with their big bottles for a while now! They are quite pricey for what you get. I do love their 12oz bottle offerings though.

    Yes yes yes, I told the waitress emphatically that Galaxy Black had to be bottled. It was great.

    Personal favorite would have to be Palo Santo Marron. Having the 2008 last summer at the brewpub on tap was delicious.

    I am a big fan of Punkin and 60 minute. I thought the aprihop was decent as well. Didn't care much for Rasion or Midas touch, and haven't tried 75, 90 or 120 minute. I haven't been into craft for too long, and my palate is at the point now where I am enjoying IPAs so I don't want to get hooked on DIPAs yet.

    DFH is hit or miss for me, but the "hits" are some of my very favorites. They try realllly hard to be interesting - sometimes it's amazing, sometimes not so much. My faves are:

    Burton (all time top 5)
    Bitches Brew (top 10)
    90 (top 10 and I am NOT a hop head)
    My Antonia (has no one else brought this up??? Phenomenal!)
    Squall (unfiltered, bottle conditioned version of the 90....no longer in production, but it was also a top 5 - maybe top 3. RIP)

    Also a big fan of the Indian Brown and Raison D'ĂȘtre, but neither are in the same class as the others. Aprihop is nice too.

    On the other side, Birre Etrusca, Noble Rot and Immortal Ale....eh.

    Living 15 minutes from a DFH Ale House....simultaneously wonderful and dangerous.

    120, Raison d'Extra, Worldwide, Squall.

    But absolute fave is the Savor Flowers collab with Sam Adams. No other beer like it anywhere. Wish they made more...

    Pretty much what everyone said. Indian Brown, Burton, Palo, 90. But one I had at the brew pub which was awesome was Ghost of Shanobi. A black IPA I thought it was incredible.

    If your lucky enough to go on a Monday or Friday try whatever is on the "Randall". I had 90 thru that and was amazing.

    I'm not a huge DFH guy, but Bitches Brew is very good, and I drink the hell out of Festina Peche every summer.

    Palo Santo is my fave followed closely by Burton Baton.

    I will stick up for Midas Touch...think it is great melding of wine, mead, and beer. Not for every day, but I love the stuff as a treat. And I like Red and White, wife and I both like Namaste.

    The minutes are good, reliable. Ancient ales are hit or miss. Overall, I like their stuff. They hit for a pretty good average and throw in a home run once in a while for me.
