Wow. What a tough one to call! The Rogue is definitely hoppier(which I love)
but the Dogfish is very nicely balanced.(Which I also love)
After much deliberation, I'd have to call it a virtual tie. ;^)

Best regards,
Bill
PS: Yeah, it's an East coast vs West coast thing.
Very, VERY slight edge to Dogfish Head.




Re: Dogfish Head 90 Minute vs Rogue Imperial Pale Ale..
having never tasting them side by side (and being unduly influenced by the time
I had the 90 minute from the cask) I have to agree with you but I know both are
much better than the 120 minute IPA.

Bah. 120min. is an incredible beer. Unfortunately, imo, the 12oz.
bottles don't do it nearly the justice the 750mL bottles did, but still,
fine stuff.

   I found the 22-ounce bottles of 120-minute IPA I had
to be seriously underattenuated-- sweet, worty, hard to
drink.  Maybe other bottlings were better, I dunno.

   As for the original question, I won't wimp out on it.
Give me 90-minute IPA any day.  It's The Malt.  About
once a year I buy a commercial keg.  This past year's
was 90-Minute IPA, and I enjoyed every last drop of it.
(Well, that's not quite true... lots of other people
enjoyed a few drops of it, too.)

I believe I established my credentials on despising the 120, but I have to
admit that later bottlings, in 12 oz., were much, much better. Still a bit
sweet, but definitely much more enjoyable. I'd still rather -- much
rather -- have 90 Minute.

This is a tad OT, but how do you guys afford the Dogfish head stuff?
One bottle of 120 (12 oz) goes for eight bucks, and a FOUR PACK of
just the brown ale is close to $14.00! I have a hard time taking a
chance with those kind of prices. I *did* buy a 4 pack of the 90
minute and had to dump one of the bottles, probably due to age. The
rest of the bottles were better but certainly not stellar.

I haven't seen any of their products in bombers or 750ml.

For me, many of the DFH beers are once and a while tries for me (and I
gather many others, too). That's how I afford it. It's not something that's
going to always be in my fridge, though I wish certain ones were (like the
Indian Brown). 6-packs of the Indian Brown go for around $7.99 in the Boston
area, so for me this is something that I can reasonably stock up on now and
then. Sounds like you are getting ripped-off though. $14.00 for a 4-pack?
Are you sure it's the Indian Brown?

They do 750ml bottles, but I guess, like anything else, distribution depends
on your area and local stores. You can always drop DFH an email and inquire.

Cheers!

Yep I'm sure. Suppose I'll have to take some price quotes in for them,
or make DFH aware of the prices being charged. Of course this is the
same place that charges $5.00 a bottle for Orval and $9.00 a six pack
for Hoegaarden.

I don't drink them very often which is partly due to the fact that they are
hard to find in Norcal and partly due to the price. I sucked it up and paid the
$9 for the WWS (well worth it) and found the 120 for a measly $6 (in a bar no
less). I used to be able to get some (pale, Indian brown, 60 IPA) at Trader
Joes for $6 a 6 pack but they don't carry it any more.

I've bought the Indian Brown before. I don't recall it being near the price
you quote..from Ft. Collins, Co.

Btw, I think it's about the SHIT as far as brown ales go. The only serious
contender to it, for me, is the Nut Brown from Sammy Smith.

Best regards,
Bill

You're getting ripped off. I pay $9 for a Four Pack in mid-NJ.

never was able to find it in the 750. The 12 oz I tried wasn't terrible by any
means and I think it'd be interesting to drink about 3 oz. at a time but I left
almost half of the 120 on the bar as the cloyingness got to me (and my
stomach), I can't imagine   working my way through a 750 unless I had 6 or 7
people to share it with.

Heh, it can be done be an individual...

I probably drank it quicker than I should of, but I found it
intriguing.  For what it's worth, I think even I prefer the
90 Minute, but the way I see it, for every 4 60s and 4 90s I
have, I'd like a 120 to match.  Why settle for just one of them?

Boy, sure wish I could find the Bulbous Brown again though...

both are
I agree. The 120's I tried were sweet beyond my tolerance level.

Give Rogue some credit for originating this style in the first place.
