Default Presesnt for myslef

So I'm going to be ordering some beers online for a Christmas present to myself. I live in an area with limited beer selections, but am a fan of great tasting brews. That's the reason I have to order online. I was just wondering if you guys could give some suggestions (sites or beers) on what I should get. I'm a HUGE fan of ales, IPAs being my favorite. So what are some "must try" ales that I can look into? Thanks in advance for the help guys.

****EDIT****

So I started a list:

Russsian River Brewing Co.:
Blind Pig IPA
Damnation Golden Ale

Stone Brewing Co.:
Vertical Epic
Double Bastard

Alesmith:
X Pale Ale

Dogfish is great! I haven't been able to find the 120 minute around here, just the 60. It's going on the list! haha

dfh is what got me into craft brews actually. if i can recall... it started with a friend sampling raison d'etre and then a SWMBO telling me to stop stealing that guy's beers.

i really hope sam cracks the keg on our world through the show.

Well I am a huge fan of Stone, I can see you got some on your list already... I love the Stone Levitation, its only 4.6 percent or so, but huge taste.

Try Three Floyds Artic Panzer Wolf. It's hard to find, when they brew a batch it is gone quickly.

Anything from Jolly Pumpkin out of Michigan. Everything I have had of theirs is awesome. I would especially recommend the BamBiere - It's great
