Default Calling all IPA lovers...what are your favorite 3?

After doing a poll here:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f5/poll-...ml#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

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.
