Default DFH 90 and 120, I leave it for those who enjoy it.

I have to say that everyone out there makes beer for someone. This beer was not at all for me. Neither was the 120. Luckily other people drink this beer, but it is totally not for me. You don't have to worry about me depleating the stocks.

Yeah, if you dont like the 90 then the 120 will melt your tongue.
Tried their 60 at all?


Last Saturday we blended the 60 & 90 for a "75" and it was right where I like it.

Me either I can't stand the stuff. If I am not going to drink my own IPA's I buy Local except for Stone. I like Founders Double Trouble, Reds Rye PA, Two Hearted and Crooked Tree From Dark Horse. I still think the Stone Ruination is the best IPA I have ever had.

I have to say that it is a very east coast styled beer. Nothing against it, just not for me. Very malty and not as much hops as I figured there would be. Syrup like as well. Glad I tried them though.

East coast here. I enjoy them both and at the same time don't care for the Stone IPA. It just seems harsh and raw. On the other hand I like the Arrogant Bastard. Prob b/c the extra malt used to bump the ABV balances the hops better, for me that is.

I agree completely. Had the 60 min a couple of months ago and thought it barely touched Pale Ale territory, let alone IPA.

I like the 90 every now and then, but not all the time. I like my IPA to have a nice little base behind it. I find Stone IPA to be nothing more then a load of hops dumped into water. Throw a little something in there for some balance!

120 is neither an East Coast nor a West Coast IPA. It is a barleywine and should be evaluated accordingly, regardless of what the brewery chooses to call it.

I like the 60 a lot. The 90 isn't anything special at all, though. I haven't had the 120, as the abv limit in GA is like 14% or something random and arbitrary like that.

The thing about DFH is that they do all these crazy brews, which is cool, but their best beers are the most straightforward ones (the 60 minute and the India Brown, imo).

Not fan of the 60 - leaves an astringent aftertaste on my tongue.

The 90 was great IMHO, it was nice and balanced and hid that 9% ABV very well (too well actually).

Never had the 120; I don't believe that I will ever be able to justify the cost enough to warrant buying one bottle let alone a 4 pack.
