    Columbus Brewing Co.- Bodhi . Local growler store is the only place to find it outside a bar I know of.

    Thrillseeker IPA from Beachwood Brewing. Similar aroma and taste profile as Blind Pig n Sculpin(think tropical), but more intense. It's just great, my new favorite single IPA.

    Backcountry Brewing's Pale ale (I nominate because it used to be called Telemark IPA)

    Would love to try the original then, I love space. I have a feeling though its not always as fresh as it should be. But mhhmm Citra and Falconer Flight hops? sign me up

  11. I'm going to go with Foothills Jade IPA. Made about 10 minutes from my house and I can get a growler fill every single day for 10$. It has 184 ratings on here so it isn't incredibly unheard of. But, the people who have tried it gave it an average of 96. Great IPA, and one of the best beers in North Carolina. Only behind Foothills BBA Sexual Chocolate, Olde Rabbits Foot, and Event Horizon. (And I guess La Folie, if you can count the New Belgium brewery in Asheville.)

    Austin Beerworks Heavy Machinery IPA series are shockingly good for Tejas IPAs which have been our weak link in the past. $9.99 for a 4-pack too! Everyone I sent the double & cenntenial HM to were blown away.

    COOP F5. It finally hit cans. Defiantly an amazing IPA.

    Do Black IPA's count? If so then Two Brothers Hop Centric Black. If not, then terrapin Recreationale, its actually a pale ale but based on the amazingly strong hop flavor, you would think it was an IPA.
  19. Lagunitas New Dogtown Pale Ale?

    Zombie Dust?

    Drake's 1500?
