I was not a fan I do like the fat tire though.

I love IPA's, but Big Sky's IPA is terrible!

The worst beer I had recently was Sam Smith's Organic Choclate Stout. I dunno it had some sort of strange chemically sweetness. I love all their other beers I've had but this one was nasty.

It doesnít help that the flavor sticks to your palate, not that smokey bacon isnít delicious, but in this context? Iím usually forgiving in my reviews, but this, this is just, guh. Iíd rather drink the 22 of Brian Baroo I got one time that tasted like armpits than this.

Up until tonight, that Brian Baroo (3 Floyds) I had was far and away the worst craft brew I'd had. It seriously smelled and tasted of sweaty armpits and I'd gladly drink that before Voodoo Doughnut. I honestly can't think of anything else that I found offensive like those two, and VD really out did itself.

So, what say you?

I f'in loved the Voodoo Bacon Maple Ale, only had an issue with the price

Seconday: Golding abbey, Flanders Red, Cocoa IPA, S.C.A. IPA

Upland brewery helios pale ale. Ive never tasted so much diacetyl in my life. They are in bloomington indiana (home of INDIANA UNIVERSITY) I go to purdue, but this plays no bias in this case. The brewery is said to make awesome lambics but most all of the "regular" beers they make are terrible. Most are bland. But helios pale is terrible. I havent had a beer thats been worse. I recomend you all to try it so you can learn how not to make beer.

I have been struggling to make a good IPA (all of mine suck so far) but id rather drink my worse ipa vs their butterscotch infested helios. Makes me really think they care 0% about their product, that is a flavor that should have been weeded out in their trial batches

I have yet to try the Voodoo Bacon Maple Ale. The price has kind a been a deciding factor. For the price I don't mind rolling the dice on something I'm at least 70% sure I'll enjoy. I usually see it then get sidetracked to something else I'd rather get that I'm more sure I'll like. Hopefully I'll eventually try it. There's just so much great beer out there I'd rather try first.
