    Picked one up

    I picked one up last night. Drinking it now.

    I expected more hop flavor. A lot more.

    I'm drinking it "cool", but not "cold".

    Alcohol and hops seem to cancel each other out, leaving a barleywine flavor with a hoppy aroma.

    As it warms up a bit, the alcohol seems to beat down the hop flavor a bit .
    Have you accepted beer as your own personal savior?

    If you're looking for a extreme IPA with lots of hop flavor I recommend Founder's Devil Dancer triple IPA. It's 13% and has a nice hop flavor balanced by the malty sweetness. And it only costs around $13 for a 4 pack compared to $8 a bottle.

    How did you like the Devil Dancer? I personaly liked it and thought it was the hoppiest beer I have ever tried.

    I thought the DD was great. Definitely one of the hoppiest beers I've had but I thought it was pretty well balanced with the sweetness and alcohol. I just got some Hop Wallop which I remember thinking was the hoppiest beer I'd ever tasted last year so I'll have to compare the two.

    I just had the Hop Wallop for the first time a couple weeks ago (a restaurant in town is actually carrying it on tap). Whoa, a great beer.

    As far as the Dogfish Head 90 versus 120 discussion, I prefer the 90 Minute Ale. I can't say enough about the 60 Minute Ale, too. Another fine, fine beer.

    I like the 60 as well and usually have that at the pub. Next spring, I'm gonna put a sixtel of it on my kegerator.

    Picked up a 4 pack of the 90 last night. Payed $10.99 for it. Kind of pricey, but I plan to save it for New Years Eve. I would like to try to get a bottle or 2 of the 120, just for comparison. My local store was out, but I haven't exhausted all of my resources yet.

    For New Years Eve, I tried the 90 minute and the 120 minute. I have to say, I preferred the 90 minute. I found that the 120 was too sweet, and the alcohol taste really came through. I bought 2 bottles at $9.99 per, and I plan on putting one of them up until next New Years Eve, just to see if there is a difference after aging it.

    The 90 minute was a HUGE hit, even with people who normally drink swill. It was a bit pricey for an "all the time brew", but I can see getting some for special occasions.

    Anyway, that's just my opinion.

    I just happened to hear some good things about Dogfish and decided to try it after being a Miller Lite/Yeungling drinker. Thats what sparked my interest and brought me here. I just got their book, but haven't read it yet.

    At the restaurant here in DE, they charge $10 for a bottle of 120. Of course, I didn't know this until the bill came. I went looking for it at the local liquor stores, and it's about $7.99 everywhere. The 120 is an awesome brew that is surprisingly good for as strong as it is. My favorite so far is their 90 because it just seems to be balanced better than their 60.

    I also enjoy their WWS and recently tried their Old School Barleywine which was amazing. I've left the restaurant on several occasions after drinking 3 beers and maybe some of the sampler feeling pretty darn good! Surprising thing is that I feel good the next day. Must be the quality ingredients.

    Welcome to the board. Do you live near the pub? I visit it occasionally. The tour is interesting too. It is at the brewery in Milton on Fridays and Mondays at 3:00PM.

    Thanks guys! I live up in Middletown, which is about 1.5 hours away, but I'm down the beach every weekend in the summer and it's only about 20min from the beach house.

    I do have to find the time to go on the tour though, sounds like a good reason to leave work early on a Friday.

    So when should we expect a Dogfish Head 150 Minute then? Not that I want to pay $20 for a 12 ounce beer...

    Actually, their beer is unfiltered, and cotains yeast. Those beers provide far less hangover potential
