    Alpha Dog, an Imperial, from Laughing Dog is great.

    Perrin IPA (Comstock Park, MI) - newer brewery outside Grand Rapids. Love basically everything they have. The DIPA is incredible as well.

    I love it. It was the IPA that got me into the style. It goes perfect with one of their pizzas.

    I've really been enjoying The Dandy from Societe lately. Best new IPA of 2012 as far as I'm concerned.

    Not sure if this toes the line of being too well-known, but Odell IPA is fantastic. I figured it could fit in here due to their limited distribution.

    Agreed. My first NJ beer upon visiting NJ for the first time, and it did not disappoint.

    I've long waited for NJ to really step it up. No disrespect to the older breweries here but Kane and Carton make some fantastic beers. Head High is one of my favorite single IPA's hands down. The Galaxy Double Dry Hopped version is truly an amazing beer

    I don't know if it's been mentioned here yet, but Hop Rising is a pretty good DIPA from Squatters, SLC Utah.

    Liftbridge's "Hop Dish".

    Also, Indeed's "Day Tripper". Though they call it a Pale Ale, it drinks like an IPA.
