Default Favorite IPA

So as my screen name suggests, I like IPA's a little bit I have a top 3 but I can never pick an all out favorite. So I was wondering if we could talk about a few things in this thread.

First: List your top 3 IPA's that are not homebrews.

Second: In your area, what is your favorite microbrew?

My list:

1. Saranac IPA
2. Southern Tier IPA
3. Stone Ruination

There is a microbrew here in Buffalo, "Flying Bison", that makes a seasonal IPA but I think I would have to go with the Southern Tier as my favorite microbrew IPA. Saranac has been brewing and housing for Sam Adams so I cant consider them a microbrewery anymore.

Dogfish is one I can't get into. Never heard of Goose Island, where's that from?

Dogfish Head 90 minute (technically a IIPA?)
Stone Ruination IPA

Favorite brewery is New Belgium -- but I live too far away from CO. This was the brewery that got me into micro brews when my uncle brought some by. I also like their employee benefits and that they offset their CO2
