Just got done having 7 IPAs last night at regional food and drink in DC. I don't even think I drank half of the IPAs on the menu - I also didn't drink any IPAs I have already drank before, meaning no DFH or Stone's. RFD in DC has about 30 beers on draft and 300 bottles... so it's obviously one of my 2 favorite places to drink (the other is owned by the same guy and has MORE beer variety!)
In at work at 9 AM bright eyed and bushy tailed.
I would say the best I tried was the Bid Daddy IPA from Speakeasy or the Hop Ottin' from Anderson Valley. The worst, by far, was the Stoudt's IIPA. It really tasted like the fermentation had gotten stuck! it had a too sweet malty flavor that had almost chocolate tones. I have never tasted a beer that (I thought) had been bottled despite a stuck fermentation. It was wretched.
