Calling all IPA lovers...what are your favorite 3?
 
After doing a poll here:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f5/poll-ipa-do-you-like-better-stone-ipa-dogfish-head-60-bells-2-hearted-106700/index3.html#post1176532
I thought I would open it up to see what others' favorite 3 IPA's (or IIPA's) are. I'm hoping that will give me some ideas to look for next time I'm at the party store. As you know from the poll, my three are:

Bells Two Hearted
Dogfish Head 60
Stone IPA

Smuttynose IPA
Sierra Nevada Celebration
Sweetwater IPA

(weird how they all start with 's')

Just 3? There are so many good ones out there.

Bear Republic Racer 5
Stone IPA
Smutty Nose IPA
Southern Tier IPA
Victory Hop Wallop
Ballast Point Big Eye

the list goes on and on.

I probably haven't tried as many IPAs as everyone else, but my top 3 are:

Stone IPA
Avery's IPA
Victory Hop Devil

Avery and Victory can probably be interchanged depending on what I last bought, and they're not that far behind from Stone's.

I'm not really a fan of the Double IPAs, but Ruination is probably my "favorite", if I had to pick one. I've had Avery's Maharashi(sp), Flyin' Dog's Double Dog and a few others and I'm not really that big of a fan of them.

Hopslam
Hop Whallop
Two Hearted

This is all subject to change though, since I have a bottle of Pliny on the way.

So far all American IPAs and no true British-style IPAs? C'mon people!

Meantime English IPA
Schlafly Export IPA
Stone IPA

EDIT: Hop Slam and the like are DIPA/IIPAs, if those are allowed then replace the Stone with their Ruination.
