I've had a couple of the Rogues. There a million different ones. I personally didn't like them as much as most do.
The latest big time winner for me is Anchor's Summer Beer. The best wheat beer I've ever had.
Rogue makes some good stuff (I have only had the Hazelut brown, the choc stout and the dead guy.) I like all 3, but to me they are a little pricey for what they are. Just my 2 cents, though.
I just tried the Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale last night. Very good, but I didn't feel like I could give it a fair tasting, as I was a little lit up already when I was drinking it.
Hosted a 'Beer Fest' this weekend. Good times considering the attendees were a mixed bag of connoisseurs and amateurs. All attendees brought an entry into the judging and we had a keg for the drinking games. The winner (Dale's Pale Ale, which is by far the best IPA I've ever had out of a can) received a 2 liter glass boot . . . and was forced to use it . . . until it reversed directions on him. Anyway, we had about 40 entries, and a damn good time. Cheers!
I gotta admit, I have never had an IPA out of a can.
Gotta love the fall coming, folks! It means Oktoberfest brews; my favorites!
Any of you ever tried the Dogfish Head Midas Touch? If so what'd you think?
Never have had it.
It's interesting. Brewed with grapes, honey, and saffron. Normally I am not into fruity type beers, but this wasn't bad. Only bought a single, think I need to give it another shot. It's kind of winish. http://www.dogfish.com/brewings/Year...ir/1/index.htm
Fruity beers rarely work for me too, but there is a fine line between fruity and winey, as you point out. I've had winey beers that are great, but fruity, truly, make me want to hurl.
