Most of them are from Cali or Vermont... or I make them myself in NJ.

Low malt presence, quite dry, little to no crystal, pale, crisp, easy drinking, light to medium light body, citrusy, fruity, tropical, piney, and/or dank with highly aromatic and hop forward with smooth, but high bitterness.

Kern, Alpine, Russian River, Hill Farmstead, Lawsons... and Surly is also good.
