Ok, so my LBS has clone kits for each of these beers. Ive tried Stone IPA and had several of Laguntas IPAs (just not their standard IPA). I haven't tried Racer 6 cause I don't think it's available in CT, but I heard its excellent.

I'm leaning towards Racer 6, what do u think?

I think it's hard to go wrong with any of them.

So much beer, so little time...

Oh, sorry I'm an idiot... I meant Racer 5. I just tried stone the other day and I wasn't too impressed.

Don't get me wrong it was pretty tasty but I think it was over hyped to me. Any other IPAs suggestions?

Stone holds a special place in my heart. It was really the first beer that had me like "wow I could get into this IPA thing..."

I'm drinking Racer 5 right now...seen the "racer 6" in the title and was wondering if I'm missing out out on something!

I feel the same way about Lagunitas that you feel about Stone, Eandersen. I've tried a handful of their IPAs but just not there regular IPA.

Sorry thaworm69, that would have been a cruel joke if I did it on purpose but sadly I'm just a dummy

I can tell this is going to be a tough choice...I haven't seen Drake's in my neck of the woods, I wonder if they have that one...

decisions decisions...

Racer 5 is a great beer. Love that stuff, wonderful aroma.

It's dryhopped with centennial Amarillo and Columbus. Mmmmmm...
