I felt bad for all the hipsters drinking these beers and trying to act like the beers were great.
I have to second this. I had Roth's lineup at the CoHop Festival in Burlington last weekend. They were all terrible.

Stone's 16th Anniversary Ale was pretty bad. Just wasn't a huge fan of the lemon verbena in an IPA. And Stone is my favorite brewery!

Shipyard apple head, It's nasty. Straight up nasty. Apple pie, apple cider, apple sauce all are great American institutions. Apple beer is gross dude. Seriously. I couldn't even drink it after I got good and drunk. Nasty.

At the American craft beer fest in Boston Haverhill brewery put out a salt beer. They are an awesome, award winning brewery, but this was a miss. Imagine a beer made with sea water. Yuck.

It's worth mentioning again how bad applehead is. Pumpkin head is good. Smashed blueberry is good. Applehead is disgusting.

Maybe Shipyard's Apple Beer is bad, I've never had it. I will say that New Glarus's Apple Ale is top notch.
