Am I the only one who found it incredibly overrated? It was like drinking everclear infused with hops. Not for me I guess

Whoa, I didn't realize they were so expensive! A beer store near me sells them for $5.99 each and it took me at least 3 months of staring at them before I bought one, as I though they were too expensive.

I don't think it is THAT bad, but I do think it is overrated. It is a gimmick beer in my eyes, and nothing more.

Can someone point me to a primer on IPA's? I've been trying to find out what 60-, 90- and 120 minute means. I take it the higher the number, the hoppier the brew, but where do the minutes come from? Thanks!

They come from the marketing genius that is Sam C @ DFH!

If I am not mistaken, and I may be, I think it has to do with how they are hopped. DFH invented a system of "continuous hopping". It started when he was homebrewing and used one of those old vibrating football games to constantly add hops to the boiling wort. When he went big time he had a more "professional" one built. I believe the 60, 90 and 120 minute all have to do with how long they are continuously hopped for. Don't quote me on this though, I am going from memory so there are probably holes in my story, or I could be just plain wrong.

For me, DFH itself is a bit overrated. I respect their ability to push the envelope and to successfully brew "extreme" beers, but I like my beers balanced, and theirs are not very well balanced. IMO, of course.
