Here we are with all votes tallied through post #261. DIPA's, IPA's, Rye PA's, and APA's were all added. Results were tabulated even if there were more than 3, I didn't feel like reffing. Might be some duplicates, or brews that are named wrong. I don't have the extensive IPA background to get this perfect. Did learn about a lot of IPA's I have yet to try though

yea I think a lot of this has to do with region. I can't get Russian river, ballast point, 3 Floyd's, surly or some others in Missouri. They could be great, just can't get em.

My friend, YOU ROCK!!!

I'm thinking about starting a poll with the top 10 or 15 or so from this list and see what happens. BUT region issues might skew things. Like some others, I can't get many west coast beers here in the Michigan.

After many, many Pliny the Elder tastings and also having been a huge fan.... I have declared Hair of the Dog Blue Dot the greatest IPA i have ever had. Didnt see it on the list. Cheers. SW

Update: I saw there has been 2 votes for Blue dot. Atta Boys.
