This beer is delicious. I think this is the first time I've had it bottled, but I've had it in growlers straight from the brewery a number of times. Nothing beats a fresh growler, but overall this beer is amazing.
Not a fav beer over all. One of the better bipas though.
This was not one of our favorite beers of all time. However, this may have been the first black IPA that we didn't contemplate immediately pouring out. I feel like that's a big endorsement for not liking this style at all.
I love Great Divide. They are in my top 5 favorite breweries. But this beer was really disappointing from them. Being advertised as a wood aged double IPA, I would have expected a lot of wood and hops. The hops were average and the wood flavoring was missing for the most part. For an anniversary ale from a great brewery, I'm disappointed.
Apricot taste. Not a fan of the fruit or the flavor in my beer. Not very hoppy. More fruit beer than anything.
There was a definite apricot taste in this beer. I am not a flavor of the fruit or the taste being in my beer. It wasn't hoppy at all for an IPA, I think it was more of a fruit beer than anything else.
The roses were quite favorable. It was a really nice change from the typical flavors you find in beers. It was a great beer all around and I would totally drink it again, just not regularly as the roses would be overpowering on a regular basis.
This beer is local. It was ok, but not super hoppy. I feel like this beer and brewery may improve as they have been around longer. The brewery could use a bit of refining in their recipes, but I look forward to trying it again.
I liked it for a Hefeweizen. We picked it up since a guy in a BC bottle shop said ti was the world's oldest brewery and we had to try it. It was a bit bland compared to beers now, but it was good for what it was.
What better way to celebrate quitting a job (knowing nothing but unemployment is waiting and planning a cross country move) than drinking a champagne beer?
This infinium is much better than 2010 was. It's quite bubbly but not overly so. It's fruity and slightly sour but not unpleasant. Really I don't like champagne so this is a nice compromise. Oh and 10.5% abv doesn't hurt either.
This beer was drinkable, but somewhat unremarkable. There were hints of vanilla which added some interest, but not enough for me to ever really pick it up again unless it's for a "people pleaser" event.
This is a great demonstration of what I wish more witbiers tasted like. I have tried a number of them and I don't generally like this one. Without being insulting, this is a much better version of a Hoegaarden. It's complex but does well within the style.
Oh my goodness, this beer is delicious. Avery has really outdone themselves on this anniversary beer. This beer alone makes me want to take a trip to Boulder and visit the brewery. If you see one of these, definitely pick it up. All that and I'm not even a fan of saisons.
I bought this beer for the bottle. I'm quite certain that is why most people buy this beer. It is definitely one that if you buy once and drink you'll probably never buy again. Shame the bottle is way better than the beer.
I had heard this was a terrible beer, but was determined to try and judge for myself. For once, I really wish I had listened to other people and saved myself the money. The beer itself was so boring.
Compared to other beers from DFH, this may have been the worst thing they've ever produced. Bitches Brew (based off the Miles Davis album) was amazing and mind blowing and was like music in my mouth. Pearl Jam's beer was the most boring thing ever.
The only reason you should buy this beer is if you are the biggest Pearl Jam lover or if you are faithful to DFH and want to try it.
This is one of the "Ancient Ales" from DFH. It is a pretty solid beer, considering that the recipe is from China so long ago. With honey and grapes I was afraid it would be too sweet, but it was a good blend.
This beer has citrus notes and is just a good amount of hoppy. If you're first taking a sip of a 90 Minute, it's great and hoppy. However, if you're drinking it with other hoppy beers then it just blends in nicely. Overall, this is a solid IPA to drink.
This beer made us fall asleep last time we drank it. Luckily this time we drank it early on in the night so we didn't magically fall asleep this time. I can taste the chai and enjoy it more in beer than in tea. Juniper berries are one of those things I have no clue if I like the flavor anywhere but in beer, but they are yummy. Overall, this is an interesting beer.
Strawberries. Not my favorite beer. Quite fruity. Tastes like their lipgloss.
My husband says he'd like to drink this at a little girls birthday party.
I love Dogfish Head, I really do. However, this may be one of my least favorite beers that they brew. It smells heavily of strawberries and tastes pretty fruity as well. DFH makes lip gloss out of this and I much prefer it in that form.
My husband's comment was that he'd prefer to drink this at a little girls birthday party.
This beer is gluten-free...maybe that's the problem.
Once again, these were a bit aged. They're not nearly as good as when they are fresh. Then again, I think this years batch was better than previous years. It left very nice lacing on the glass as we drank them.
