yeah, who decided it was better to have balance in an IPA anyways?I wish he'd listed the "dozen IPA that are more balanced and more flavorful than Racer 5" instead of *****ing on and on about something else.
I agree with most of the comments.
Although.... "The usual Colorado elitism."
Does that really exist or is this "blogger" making Colorado beer enthusiasts look like idiots?
Yeah, I don't get all the DFH hate. It seems like people need to hate something that's popular and like something that's obscure (and most often terrible) in order to prove their brew knowledge prowess.No, he doesn't.
I still don't see where the merit in this article is? He's just stirring up ****.
Every blurb is filled with disparaging remarks about the brewery.
Quote about DFH:
"Still, they are so strong, so unusual, that I can't drink more than a couple of sips of any of them."
So now we're talking a "micro-brew" that's overhyped compared to others that are what we call "not as successful". Is he just playing "I know this breweries name, so their beer should be better" game? I'm not sure what his goal is outside of saying the overhyped/successful microbreweries aren't any better than the less successful ones. I'm surprised he didn't call out Sam Adams in the post.He thinks the breweries are overhyped (important detail lost on some of you). Some of you disagree. After reading through his list again I have to say I agree with two of his overhyped takes and the others I don't have any experience with. I read his thoughts and took them for what they are, his opinion.
120 Minute IPA will be late because of "Bad" yeast and they won't sell it. If that does not tell you something about what they are about I dunno what will.Yeah, I don't get all the DFH hate. It seems like people need to hate something that's popular and like something that's obscure (and most often terrible) in order to prove their brew knowledge prowess.
DFH makes many great beers that are very drinkable: 60,90 Minute IPA, Indian Brown Ale, Aprihop, just to name a few. Whats wrong with having several solid beers and a bunch of experiments. Homebrewing is about experimentation, why criticize them for doing just that on a larger scale?
Bloggers are dumb, and they're killing journalism as we know it
overrated was the word not world beater. To answer your question the same people that love imported fosters lager ...from Canada. really most beer consumers buy the branding not whats in the bottle
who am i to get in the way of your love for the bieber ?So you are saying that these people, with whom you have no regard for their opinion, are rating these beers more highly than they should.
I suppose we should open a thread about how pre-teens overrate Justin Bieber then.
I'm basically with you on this except I can't stand any of New Belgium's beers. Not sure why.No offense to anyone, but I disagree 100%. The only thing in there that I agree with is that Fat Tire isn't awesome. But like he said, I don't know anyone who really loves the stuff because it is an awesome beer. It is a solid flagship beer and good for drinking without thinking, just like almost every flagship beer in existence...
I would not read this duder's blog.
