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.

Without a doubt, my favorite is still Dogfish 90 minute. Pliny is a close second.

My favorites are Lagunitas IPA and DFH 60 minute. There are only a few I haven't fully enjoyed (raging bitch is actually one of them... haven't found a single Belgian style beer I'm into).

Also Saranac IPA is really tasty (though I'm not sure if I'd quite call it an IPA). And at less than 7 a six pack one can't complain much.

Just getting into IPA's, today it's MacTarnahan's Summer Grifter seasonal, $2 bomber, and very tasty. I've got a Rogue Brutal IPA in primary, and today ordered NB's Dead Ringer. Happy IPA Day:mug:
