Old Rasputin. Tastes like drinking an ashtray to me.

I don't like any of the bigger DFH IPAs; to me they are way to cloying to enjoy.

Any IIPA... I like hops, but at the levels of a Bohemian Pilsner or a traditional British Pale Ale... more than that I find un pleasant

I guess I'd just quibble that I don't see many people referring to Magic Hat as a "great brewery" or mentioning any of their beers as being exceptional. They are what they are; a great marketing company with a couple of very good beers (Roxy Rolles), a few decent ones, and a bunch of drek.

Likewise, Sam Adams Triple Bock, I though was one of the most-despised beers out there. It's horrible, and I know it's not just me!

The one beer that I know a lot of people ADORE that I can't drink is Rodenbach Grand Cru. I like a lot of sour beers, but it's way too much vinegar for me.

I felt that way about IPAs as well, and now I drink more IPAs than other styles. I changed my mind when I brewed a Pliny clone for my second brew. MAN, do I love them now! Brewing an IPA just made me appreciate it, I suppose.

I would have to say that DFH 60 wasn't appealing to me, but I'd try it once more to be sure. I also don't like Fat Tire that much, you can keep Yuengling, and Stone's Arrogant Bastard is just too angry for me.

I agree with the previous poster who said Alagash White has a strange flavor. I also like most wits.

Any American version of any style ever has been terrible. I'm starting to think most Americans don't know what good beer is or how to make it. Hopping something so high it numbs your tongue is just stupid and pointless.

That's quite a statement. Brew what you like, drink what you like, don't be a tool.

Sacrilege, I know. Yet true: Pliny the Elder is all hype as far as I'm concerned.

And Anchor Steam always tastes like wet cat to me. I want to love it so badly since it's brewed here but I can't.

I've loved pretty much every ST I've had. Solid brewery in my eyes.

Ditto on the Gran Cru

Delirium Tremens is one for me. I understand it is just because I'm not a Golden Strong fan. Except Gulden Draak!

I got another one that's a little... blasphemous.



Extremely hot and extremely oily. I know it's supposed to be over-the-top, but I hated the mouthfeel.

I also wasn't particularly fond of Gordon Ale, the imperial Red. I love hoppy red ales, so I was really looking forward to it, but it was SO hoppy that it ended up being weirdly... cloying. Not just sweet from the malt (although it's pretty big, too) - the hops almost tasted sweet and cloying, they were so overwhelming. It's like it was so bitter it couldn't become any more bitter, so it rolled through all the way to the side of sweetness.

With that said, other Oskar Blues I've had (especially Dale's Pale), I've absolutely loved. Dale's Pale, in particular, I find to be one of the most balanced, drinkable hoppy pale ales. The other two are just so far out of balance, so big and sweet and sticky, that I just can't drink 'em.

Being that you painted with such a broad brush, I'm pretty confident in saying that if you're serious, the problem is definitely your taste buds.
