I always thought ipa's were disgusting because of that horrible burning aftertaste somewhat like a grapefruit but stronger and I'd never had a "light" one. Then again I've only tried Abita ipa, my friends homebrew ipa, and one otheron tap that I can't remember its name. BUT yesterday I bought a 6 pack of Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and it was so good. It totally changed my mind on IPAs. Its light and refreshing and doesn't have that burning aftertaste. I just wish it was more carbonated. So what are some other good IPAs I might like that are similar to this?

The 60 is nasty compared to the 90...... at least to me.

I prefer 60 over 90. I love Stone IPA (even though I've been getting a lot of bad bottles of it lately).

Also, New Belgium Brewery's Ranger IPA is good.

I have heard of inconsinactcy between batches. I have a fellow IPA lover that said he got a amazing 6-pack but then got a ehhh 6-pack from a different store. I think I got the ehhh 6-pack, it's good, but I think I could make it taste better with 3 pounds/barrel of chinook/cascade/simcoe

I've been having that problem with Stone IPA. When I get a good bottle of it, it is absolutely delicious!!! But about 1 out of every 2 bombers that I get has an earthy taste without much of the fruit flavors from the hops.

I haven't had any problems with stone but I haven't gotten it in a while. My top three are Victory Hop Devil, Stone IPA, and DFH 60 and 90. Ok, I guess that is top 4.
