Anyone else love these guys? Can't wait to get to their table at the World Beer Festival. The Heresy is incredible...

I've had the Old Heathen and the Hops Infusion. I really enjoyed the Old Heathen but thought the Hops Infusion was a bit of a let down. I was expecting it to be much hoppier than it was. Turned out to just be a pretty standard IPA, good but not great.

All I've had was the Hops Fusion. Thought it tasted like hop water.

For a hophead such as myself the double simcoe IPA is quite tasty

I've had the Insanity, which I personally did not care for only because I'm not a fan of big, sweet barleywines (I though it was more of an oaked IIPA, not an oaked barleywine). I think I had the Hops Fusion, but I can't recall too much about it.

Their oktoberfest is really not good at all but that's all I've tried of theirs.

Interesting comment ...I've only had Insanity on draught and it was definitely not hoppy/IPA-esque. Blithering Idiot (insanity minus the oak aging) is a decent but not a mindblowing barleywine. I feel the same about their Merry Monks, Black Hole and Heathen to a degree, all decent reps of the style. Hops Infusion is kinda hit or miss.

The Double Simcoe, Imperial Pumpkin, ESB and Scotch ale are my favorites.

Well... as I said, I *thought* it was going to be more of an IPA, but it's an oaked barleywine (it's the oaked Blithering Idiot, IIRC). The bottle gives no indication ("Oaked Ale"), so that was just my guess based on the aggressive graphics. So, my disappointment had nothing to do with the beer itself, but with the packaging that gave me no indication what it was that I was buying.
