771. Dogfish Head Beer to Drink Music To

I have been a big fan of Dogfish Head ever since I saw Sam Calagione in Brew Masters.  I think he's a very intelligent business owner and thinks outside the box - those are qualities I respect in people. So, over the years, I've done my best to try their beers. Sadly, the majority of the time they are just too much for me.  I can taste the quality, but that quality doesn't always come in flavors I enjoy. The 120 Minute IPA recently came to Indiana - and even though I have not yet drank one, I suggested my Hophead Buddy Michael go get one.  He did, and he loved it - but he also bought this beer and said he thought it would be my style. 

He wasn't wrong. It's one of my favorite beers from Dogfish Head, a nice amount of full body to it, goes down smooth hut reminds you that it's a "big boy" at 9%.  I think there is only one flavor I don't like in the mix - and that's the peppercorn. It just seems to throw off everything else by being a little distractive in its flavor. Overall, still super enjoyable, and recommended.
