I recently did side by side comparisons of my most recent IIPA to both Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid and Terrapin's Hopsecutioner, and decided I like mine better. Not that I think mine is a better brew (it could use some tweaking to get it just right and if I really cared that much, I could put some effort into my process to reduce haze), or that either of those are bad brews, but all three have notably different hop characters, and I prefer mine. Or maybe I'm just biased.
Either way, I definitely know the feeling. Cheers and congrats on a good brew!
