Beer Review #64: Dogfish Head Namaste

Style: Belgian Witbier

Menu description: Belgian style witbier, citrus fruit, spice & lemongrass.

ABV: 5%

Tasting notes: Unremarkable, but that might be due to the stupid hot wings I was eating deadening my senses. Gave this another try a week later and yup, it’s still garbage!

Beer Review #50: Dogfish Head Sah’tea

Style: Ancient ale

Menu description: Brewed with tea, citrus & floral flavors, very yummy!! Subtle and balanced spice, notes of black tea, cloves and pepper.

ABV: 9%

Tasting notes: A sweet tasting and sweet smelling beer. It has an almost honey flavor with a hint of spice. There’s something else is going on in with the flavor that is tough to describe. Complex, yet inviting.

Rating: 4/5

Beer Review #44: Dogfish Head My Antonia

Style: American Imperial Pilsner

Menu description: Grassy hops, earthy hint of citrus & pepper.

ABV: 7.5%

Tasting notes: Definitely more earthy than anything else, but not bad. It’s not great, and not one of Dogfish’s best efforts, but it’s OK.

Fun fact: I reviewed this back in late 2011 or early 2012 and the above is all I wrote. I really should have taken better notes back then because a bunch of beers from my early reviewing years have sparse notes. I guess this fact is actually not that fun.

Beer Review #13: Dogfish Head Red & White

This is one of my early reviews. I knew less and wrote less and generally they are not as detailed as my later reviews. As I go through my tremendous backlog of beer notes, I’ll indicate which reviews are based off of my older notes. They have less info than I’d like, but they still helped me keep my beers straight, so I figured they’d be worth posting.

Menu: Orange peel & coriander, hints of sweet & tart fruits.

ABV: 10%

My thoughts: This is a really sweet beer. Its smooth and quite pleasant. It has just enough carbonation to give you a tickle. Despite the high alcohol content, it doesn’t taste like its going to get you drunk. The flavor of the beer masks the alcohol flavor completely. This has quickly become one of my favorites; enough so that I ordered a second round, which I hardly do when trying new beers!

Number of times I’ve had it: 2

Rating: 4/5

Beer Review #7: Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA

Before we begin today, I wanted to note that I’ve updated my post about Blue Point Sour Cherry Imperial Stout. I got to have it again recently (it’s a seasonal beer) and have some more stuff to say about it!

Today’s beer is the illustrious Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Last time we discussed how much I love IPAs, so I’m pretty sure you can guess how I’m going to feel about this beer.

There’s actually an interesting story involved with this one. The first time I had it, there was a mix up and I had the 60 minute IPA instead of the 90 minute IPA. This was after Joe and Luis, a couple of friends of mine, had raved for months about how excellent Dogfish Head Brewery’s beers were. So I grab my glass, thinking it’s 90 minute when it’s really 60 minute and I take a sip.

I had fury.

This was an IPA?! This was one of the best breweries around? Shenanigans! This was swill! Trash! Basura! I did not care for it one bit. I would not drink it with a fox, I would not drink it in a box. I would not drink it with a mouse, I would not drink it in a house. I do not like it, Luis and Joe. 60 minute completely blows!

Because of this experience I swore off Dogfish Head for quite a while. After some time had passed I was prevailed upon to try it again by my Dogfish Head loving friends. Adam (best bartender ever!) assured me that 90 was really good and 60 was not so good. We speculated that there may have been a mix up at the bar I tried it at before, so I gave it another shot here. I’m really glad I did because Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA is an excellent IPA. I don’t think anything will dethrone Sierra Nevada for me, but this is the next best thing, as far as I’m concerned.

It’s classed as an Imperial IPA and that sounds very fancy. I should probably look that up one day to see how that’s different from the regular people IPA that I’m used to. 90 minute is hoppy, even for an IPA, so if that’s not your thing, you’re gonna have a bad time. Its slightly malty, but not overly so. The hops are really front and center here and Dogfish Head must be using some really quality stuff because every glass I have is flawless. I can’t praise it highly enough. It is a bit strong, so be prepared for that.

9% ABV
