You summed it up a lot simpler than I did, but yes, that is what I was going for.

I personally think that a beer should never be overly sweet or overly hoppy, but yea, that's just me

Sometimes I want a sweet smack in the face, and sometimes you want a hop smack in the face.

Can't imagine that beer ever being a refreshing summer ale. If anything it made me really thirsty for water.
Dear god, I think I've had this one before..............It was damn terrible.

Id put a cross between this and the Detroit alt as two of the worst craft beers of all time

Anchor Christmas Ale. I've only had the 2012 version and it was terrible. Tastes like watered down Jagermeister.

I had their Hop special variety last night... Was drinking the Noble Pils with 5 noble hops in it... it was rich in hops... but jeez... who wants too much hop in a beer? If I tricked myself into liking it, it still would only be okay.

So to your point, yes, Sam Adams puts out some real questionable beers. Maybe they are over doing it?
I think the Sam Adams pale ale (not Boston pale just the pale) is rather good...it's EKG and Fuggles. I cloned it a couple times it came out quite good ...their harvest beer is gross though, really rather boring.

So yeah, any of those hey check out our crazy, trendy, grapefruit vomity, sidewalk eating IPA's with the funky label IPA's. Them's are the worst.
Oh yeah, and Gritty's Pumpkinhead...tastes like a pumpkin tossed its cookies
I was like you once ... I said the same things. I don't like dogfish 60 anymore because I find it too malty. The bitch IPA is probably flying dog, which is pretty decent if I recall.

I don't like overly bittered iPas still but I love HOPPY beers. Grapefruit puke sounds damned good !

Over doing it seems to be the thing these days . Notice that everything is over done to the point it really is not that good . Beers are out of control . Movies are so over done that the stunts are stupid and make the flic not so enjoyable . Hey at least make them kind of believable . Fast food and drinks are super sized . It just goes on and on

I would call that beer slightly hippy at most. The balance is tipped towards malt.

Foothills Brewing's People's Porter. I may get another bottle if I ever need to strip some paint.
