    Schlafly New Zealand IPA. I don't live in StL which makes me sad because it's a truly amazing IPA

    Every IPA Toppling Goliath has ever made. I cannot wait until they start bottling this spring. Golden Nugget is sublime.

    10 Barrel Apocalypse surprised me bigtime. Almost every Beachwood IPA ever made. Oh... and Societe is going to turn some heads when/ if they start bottling their 3 IPAs.

    Earth Eagle Brewings in Portsmouth, NH just opened up a tasting room, and their New England Gangsta' is citra-hopped and superbly juicy goodness. Their IIPA, Jack Wagon, is also great.

    Hop Whoopin' by O'so Brewing Company in Plover, WI

    I've only had it a couple of times but I absolutely loved this beer. It makes me wish I could get back to WI more often. And I'm shocked that it's score is only 86.

    Apex by Bear Republic, although it's technically a DIPA. I don't know if that was a "only brewed once" kinda deal or whatever, but it only has 159 reviews on BA, and I was lucky enough to find it on tap at the South Philly Taproom a while back. S*** is amazing.

    Really not fair , but Foothills Jade. Scores a 94, in house only. Some of the better stuff is regional only.

    Schlafly AIPA. Fantastic beer. If it were brewed on the west/east coast it would cost twice as much. Also, Schlafly's Tasmanian IPA is pretty darn good also and nobody knows about that.

    anything with "jade" in the name from Foothills. They also have a 100+ IBU 3.5% beer that is awesome.

    White Rajah out of Cleveland, OH and Orange Whip out of Falls Church, VA are two of the finest under-the-radar IPAs I've encountered.

    Oh and Evolution Lot No. 3 IPA.
