Not the most handsome glass, that's for sure.

(And I'd send that pour right back where it came from)

Cheers!

Looked up the manufactures web site and they are taking pre orders for a non logo glass. The cost was $25 for two with delivery in May. Shipping was somewhere around $12. So if you want one without the Logo.

Exactly my first thought as well!

On the more serious side, for those who actually have one of these: are they made out of a good solid feeling glass? I had a couple of the DFH snifters and they were wicked fragile...ended up breaking both of them in fairly short order. I haven't broken a regular pint (or even any other "special" glasses, like Chimay or Ommegang glasses) in god knows how long...

Why spend 3 more bucks and weight 3 more months? Maybe if Shipping is free it would be worth it. But I can order 3 DF IPA glasses for 27 bucks plus 10 bucks for shipping, so the same price as to get 2 without a logo.

They're very light. Super light. So I would imagine you have to be careful with it. Seems like based on resonance it's built a lot like a white wine glass.

I'm very happy with it so far. I have noticed that my flavors I've gotten seem much better. Could be 100% in my head of course, but I got much more hop flavor (not just bitterness) from Hop Wallop than in the past. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow when I get to try a loose cannon in it. Today I did Six Point's Toxic Sludge which is a black IPA and it boosted the nose on that as well. It's really a well designed glass and I'm extra happy it has the laser etched logo because the head never dies in the glass and the ridges help aerate the beer. Down side is that the last bit of the beer almost always turns to head that takes a long time to settle.

I wasn't recommending them at all. You wanted a non logo glass. This was one way to do it. If you have a way to remove the logo, then ignore this method.

I ordered 2 and tried it out this weekend. While I like the look the overall product to me was not that great. The glass is way to thin up top and the handle is too small...

I bought two while we were at Sierra Nevada last weekend. Personally, I really like them. They feel like very nice glassware. The Sierra version has a hop cone laser etched in the bottom.

As a solution to an engineering problem, I've gotta give 'em props. Even without ever having used one, I know that wine glass shape up top is great for holding and concentrating aromas, and the aeration ridges are a neat trick.

It's too bad it looks like a prop from a '70s low-budget Star Wars knock-off.
