I tried 3 new to me IPA's in my last six pack build. Crooked Tree IPA, and two local varieties: Fulton Sweet Vine of Mine and Summit Saga. The Crooked Tree was good, the Fulton so-so, but the Summit Saga was excellent. Might crack my top 3 now.

I have to say the original Stone IPA is one of my faves. Their "Ruination" IPA... not so much.

Oh and Odells IPA (local to Colorado?) is Ah-mazing!!!

Yes, and unfortunately they both went within a month. They were both fantastic. The Cascade was definitely citrus-forward, but 7.2% just like the Centennial (probably the exact same malt bill, mash schedule, yeast). The Bravo though... oh. my. god.

They even have a really good one on tap right now. Brewers Guild IPA.

Thats it! Im going to have to visit this brewery! For Gods sake I feel deprevation.Living in this stink town,usa. Think I will drink my Bravo IPA, oh..... right about now then.. It will do in my ST Pumpking Chalice for now,I guess. Not to mention marris otter golden naked coconut palm sugar nelson sauven amarillo,oak and simco dry hopps.ONe word and that word is...................DAMN!!! and all a sudden Im not so jealous then. This beer could possibly be 1.5 oz of Non-organic Golden naked oats and (simco/amarillo) away of winninng a 100% organic ipa, F! This is the one. And 5 months old even.

I was finally able to get a 4-pack of Heady Topper. It's now in my top 3 for imperial IPAs, as expected.

#1 - Kern River Brewing Co. - Citra IPA
#2 - Russian River - Pliny the Younger
#3 - Ballast Point - Sculpin IPA

Honorable Mention:
Stone - Ruination
