I thought about starting a thread called "THE NASTIEST FRIGGIN BEER I'VE EVER CONSUMED"....

Decided that wasn't fair, and figured I'd confirm this post instead....

DFH 90 Min IPA...

I know there was a time I liked IPA's. I remember it. But somewhere over the last 9+ years my taste has apparently changed and I now really have a hard time with this style. Some are just OK. Most of them lately I just plain haven't liked. I wasn't overly worried about it, figured "just my own taste".

Friday of Memorial Day weekend, at my fave beer store I found 3 DFH 90 Min IPA's in the pick a six section! "SCORE!" I thought. I grabbed two of them not to be greedy. I hung on to them for the week. So after a good meal and a few different beers out tonight, I get home and think, "Perfect time to try them".

I barely got thru ONE...

I know there are a lot of people that really like this beer but man, it REALLY turned me off... To ME, it's SO overly hopped that it's almost undrinkable.

So for me anyway, HIGHLY disappointed.

FWIW, I only drank the one, the other will stay in the fridge, shunned, unless someone wants to trade for it, or someone comes over that feels brave some evening....

You should try something a bit more tame, like Pliny the Elder.
