I agree. Not the worst, but its not my thing. I don't know what i was expecting, but it didn't work for me.

I know it isn't necessarily craft anymore, but Red Hook's stuff all tastes the same to me.

How can you disagree if you've only had one and it sucked?

Tripel is not a tripel
fat tire has no flavor at all and leaves a film in your mouth
1554 I used to like but now tastes like syrup to me
ranger is not an ipa

Magic Hat Wooly. Tasted like I was drinking liquified spruce needles. Not something I'd like to repeat.

I believe you misread the last sentence in his post.

All the Bear Republic products I've tried suck. Put down Racer 5 as really subpar IPA. How do you screw up an IPA. . . ?

What are you talking about! I said its the first BAD beer I had from them, not the first beer. Fat tire is a great beer. Ranger definitely is an IPA. 1554 is my least favorite beer from them but is still good. Their dig and loft were both great summer beers and sunshine is pretty decent too. Rampant is the only one that isn't that good because it dosent taste like an IPA at all. But there not a company that specializes in hoppy beers anyways. And if they suck so bad why do they keep growing and people keep buying their product?

I guess bud light is the best tasting beer in the world!!!

I used to love NB while I was learning to drink real beer and now think they suck. Oh well. Just my opinion.

I think when you HATE top rated breweries like New Belgium and Bear Republic, the problem probably isn't with the brewery.

If they have an average beer rating of 3.7 or higher on BeerAdvocate, they are probably doing something right.

That doesn't mean they won't make a bad beer every once in a while, but to say that everything they make is awful is silly.
