It's funny you put Hazed and Infused in the list, although a fine beer it's not an IPA.

Bear Republic Racer 5
Green Flash WCIPA
Russian River Blind Pig

Speaking of which, anyone have a TRIED and enjoyed recipe for any of those listed above? I have the BYO clone of Racer 5 recipe but so far I haven't read a reply from anyone who has brewed it and compared it to the commercial brew.

Great thread!

If I had to pick three:

Stone IPA
Bridgeport IPA (so delicate!)
Blind Pig, Pliny, or RR IPA (srsly, they are SO similar..)

Runners up:

Widmer Broken Halo (gas-station beer)
Lagunitas IPA (their new brew system works wonders)
Lagunitas Hop Stoopid
Belhaven Twisted Thistle
Full Sail IPA
Houblon Chouffe (does that count?)
Sierra Nevada Celebration
Anchor Liberty
Oskar Blues Gordon (if it's fresh)
DFH 120
Moylan's Hopsickle

Ones I do not like:

DFH 90
Stone Cali-Belgique IPA
Rogue I2PA

I forgot about Lagunitas. They make some beautiful beers and I love that IPA.
