Default Favorite APA??

One style I have not really taste tested a lot of is American Pale Ale. Sure, I have had a few and every brewery seems to have their version, but what are your favorite brands?
Home brews included...

Funny you mention that... I have to spend a few weeks in Atlanta for job training starting next week. I will have to give that one a try.

That beer is not really a standard APA. I think they call it an "Extra Pale Ale". It's really light in color and flavor, IMO.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale should be available just about everwhere, and I think is a better representative of the APA style.

Three Floyds Alpha King is one of my all time favorite beers! I really don't consider it an APA though... I think of it as more of an IPA.

Schlafly's APA is what I tend to think fits the category better and is my favorite APA. Its delicious.

I'm a big fan of Deschuttes Mirror Pond. A little on the softer side when compared to more apparently bitter SNPA.

I should have mentioned that I really like Flying Dog's "Doggie Style", too.
