I think Port Brewing's Mongo IPA is the most wonderfully unbalanced bitter hoppy beer I've ever had. I've usually had hop matter in the bottle trub. The bitterness is actually quite pleasant.

For aromatic hops, I'd say Boneyard Bone Light. It's pure AROMA/FLAVOR hops, hardly any bitterness, and the malt backbone is so light that the aroma and flavor is overwhelming. I would take it over almost anything else.

For pure dank hop flavor you can't get better then a nice Pipeworks IPA. In Chicago they are the best that's available period. I don't mean they have one or two good IPA's I'm talking half a dozen plus, all phenomenal.

This is true, I'd love to find a clone recipe for any of them. Their IPAs are amazing!

Hoptologist by knee deep is the most hoppy I have tried

+1, it may not be the most bitter, but it's the best hop experience I've ever had!

What a great beer. The brewery is about 20 miles from my house. Filling up a growler of that stuff is hop-head heaven.

I haven't had any of the beers mentioned before, but of what I have had Alpha Centauri is my favorite, and Inversion Is a close second.

Bale Breaker's IPA from Yakima, Wa. Hard to find but buy it if you can find it. Made on one of the largest hop farms in Yakima. Look 'em up, chances are the hops used in a lot of the brews mentioned in this thread came from that brewery.
