    IBA and 60. Those and the Chicory Stout are the only ones I've had so far, and I was pretty disappointed by Chicory. IBA is probably one of my favorite beers though, and 60 is great too, but I much prefer West Coast IPAs over East.

    I can't wait for My Antonia to come back out. I have yet to have an Imperial Pilsner and love regular Pilsners. The bottles I see around are from 2012 and I'd imagine that since it's supposed to be so hoppy, I should just wait until the next batch comes out.

    It's a winter beer?

    To this point, 90 minute is the only one I have truly enjoyed.

    Top 5 in order of preference-
    120 minute: Has a quality that is almost is on its own level and cannot be matched (to me) by any normal brew.
    90 minute: A great brew that is striking initially but is very well balanced.
    Palo Santo Marron: A wild card of a beer that is perfect for a spontaneous night.
    Raison de ĂȘtre: Wow. Somebody please give me some good steak or lamb to pair with this.
    Immort Ale: Again a strong brew with a unique finish. Sign me up...

    Nope, it is March/April. All I see in MD are 2011 and 2012. I was at the brewery like 3 weeks ago and meant to pick up a fresh one. However, I passed because I figured I would remember to try it at the brewpub, but I forgot since I had their 10 other brewpub exclusives as a sampler with friends. UGH!

    All I need to try now is Black & Blue, Red & White, Festina Peche and My Antonia. Then, there is the Brand X and American Beauty. Also, I would like to try a longer aged WWS. Olde School BW (fresh) kept me away from BWs for the longest time, so I would like to try one that has actually been buried in a forest for years. Also, I would like to try some aged Palo Santo, BB, and Immort. Their Bruery collab is at my local place still for $26, but I figure it is past its prime. Though there is that new British collab they are doing.

    Midas Touch got me into craft beer!

    120 Minute IPA, Bitches Brew, Fort, Squall IPA, Punkin Ale.

    I wish they'd bring back Squall. That was one of the best IPAs I've ever had.

    I used to drink a lot of Raison D'Etre when I was in college, but I can't stand the taste now for some reason.

    Also, apparently I'm one of the few Texans that digs 120, because it sits and sits around here.

    I really enjoy their Immort Ale, Urkontinent, and Punkin... Can't go wrong with any of the IPA's, 90min is a go to at most bars.

    I always found it weird that the 60 minute tasted significantly different on tap than in the bottle.
  12. HattedClassic

    HattedClassic Poo-Bah (1,780) Nov 23, 2009 Virginia

    MY top three are the Burton, 120, and Bitches Brew.

    Damn, 0 for 15?

    That's pretty harsh. I wanted to get a sample of beers that you did like but you don't have anything listed in your profile.

    Not much love for the Chicory Stout, huh. I personally enjoy the hell out of that beer. Not overly complex, but easy drinking with some nice smoke flavors to it.

    My favorites though have to be 60 Minute, Burton Baton, 75 Minute and Festina Peche.

    I like many/most. But my favs are:

    Bitches Brew
    My Antoina
  18. GodlessWatermelon

    GodlessWatermelon Initiate (0) Apr 12, 2012 Maryland

    For their regular everyday offerings, Indian Brown Ale, Palo Santo, and 60/90 Minute do it for me. As for limited/seasonals I do fancy an Olde School.

    Although my favorite DFH beer is probably 120min, I do what to give some love to Midas Touch. I know it takes a lot of shit from people, but I think its really a good beer. Pairs well with tons of different food options too, IMO. I also like Theobroma a lot, just cause its so unique.

    Oh, and Aprihop is by far the worst DFH beer Ive had.
  21. HipsterBrewfus

    HipsterBrewfus Initiate (0) Jun 3, 2012 Maryland

    I'm not a giant DFH fan, I like the 60, 90, and 120, but don't think they are anything amazing. The 75 is probably one of my favorite beers they have. Theobroma was disgusting to me (but I have another bottle and im willing to give it another shot), and Rhizing and Noble Rot were both totally underwhelming.

    With that said, Ill be heading up there in September for my birthday for the tour, because I hear its a great tour. I don't hate their beers, just the ones ive tried haven't WOW'd me. And some just didnt do anything for me

    Burton Baton for sure. Punkin Ale is pretty good too, but I can only stand to drink it during Oct/Nov for whatever reason :)

    dcsundevil2002 Initiate (0) Feb 1, 2007 Virginia

    75, 90, Punk.

    I tend to order 75 while at one of the ale houses. I feel it goes down well while enjoying the food.

    Personally a big fan of noble rot, wws, black and blue, and red and white. Not a fan of their ancient ales.

    Well, I drank both the 90 and BB in record time and find myself craving both again. But first, I will try 120 this week and drink my first 6 of Zombie Dust. It's going to be a good weekend!

    Bitches Brew and Palo are easily my favorites. But I like most of their beers that I've tried.

    I just picked up a couple of 75's that are now sitting in my cellar to get some age on them. First time I've seen them in my area.
  31. Bobheed

    Burton Baton
    Aprihop(although this year's tastes a bit different than what I remember)
    Festina Peche
    Palo Santo
    Chateau Jiahu
    Midas Touch
    Noble Rot
    aged 120

    Long story short, I love the shit out of Dogfish Head. There's others I like quite a bit as well, only a few I actually dislike (Ta Henket being #1 in that category)

    My Antonia isn't getting a lot of love on here. Thought it was awesome on tap. Also Aprihop is delicious as well as the minutes. DFH makes a bunch of great beers IMO.
