DFH is overpriced because it is unique not because it's good IMO. I'm so glad someone else posted this. As an IPA fan, I have to say they make some of the worst I've ever had. Even the brewmaster said their 120min was novelty, unbalanced without drinkability. Chicory stout is the only thing I may ever purchase again.

World Wide Stout, Olde School Barleywine, India Brown Ale and Palo Santo Marron are pretty good. Aprihop and Theobroma are all right.

Granted, I haven't drank DFH in a while, but I remember the 60,
Raison De Etre (sp) and India Brown to be too malty/sweet for
my tastes.

I've come to realize I absolutely love hoppy citrus and can't
drink too many or any very malty brown-ale like beers. I'm
currently drinking Great Divide Hibernation Ale and after 2 it
feels like I have been eating candy all day.

I'll be going back to my Ruination.

I would like to try the 120 though. Even if for novelty, but
when I see it around it's just too much $$$.

The 120 is $10 everywhere I have seen it.

Okay. Update from my previous post. Just finished a bottle of Palo Santo Marron. It is excellent. Very complex flavors and aromas. Definitely an enjoyable wood character. Very drinkable for a 12% beer. I think this will age well.

Dogfish Head, IMHO, makes some excellent and innovative stuff. The 90 minute IPA is great, although I'm a stout guy first and foremost, so take that as you will. 60 minute is kinda meh, and the 120 certainly didn't blow me away like I thought it would.

Ruination is also great in its own way, just different. Indeed, Ruination reminds me a lot of the ballast point IPA, which I also like quite a bit. Dogfish Head and Stone seem to have different approaches, so comparing the two is almost apples to oranges.

Midas Touch.

I also love the 60min, but I like hoppy beers. 90min is good too, but they get tough to drink after 2 or 3. Other than that, the rest don't do much for me.

I live a few miles from the brewery and while I have a huge amount of respect for Sam, I'm not a big fan of many of the beers. Shelter Pale is my go-to when I'm out and about. I guess I'm just not into "extreme" beer at this point in my beer journey.

I had their Punkin Ale not long ago in the brew pub. I thought it was way too alcoholy (7%). The alcohol taste overpowered the malt, hops, and even pumpkin. The food was great though.

I'm glad he's here though and I like his innovative spirit. But many of the beers are more of a novelty to me... something I try once in a while.
