I think their 60/90 min. are by far their best offerings. I think I've had maybe one or two others that were Ok.

Taking the Goose Island IPA for what it is, they nail the style on the head. And it's a good beer. If someone doesn't like it, then they probably just don't like English IPAs.
Yeah I like the Goose Island IPA - tastes good as an English IPA. Completely different to the American IPAs I'm familiar with.

You guys should try and get hold of the Thornbridge Jaipur, it's a really special English IPA, IMHO. There must be someone importing it to the US.

None of those spices belong in a beer. I felt like I was drinking cold unfinished broth.
Saison du Buff was way to bland. Definitely lacking in esters and saison funk. Totally with you on this one.

At $1.99 a bottle, I drink it for the swing top. My LHBS sells empty swing tops for $2.00 ea. No pain, no gain.

Same here. The bottles are really nice. It's almost like they're paying you to drink that syrup.

I actually like the 60 and 90 minute IPA's, but other than that I have no had anything from DFH that I liked. Their 120 was terrible (and friggin expensive!), Midas Touch was just a waste of money, etc.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that it's ga-ga for DFH. I appreciate the risks he takes, but I just don't like very many of their beers.
