    Columbus Brewing Co's Bodhi IPA is ridiculously good. It reminds me of Sculpin, but way better. Word on the street is that they will finally start bottling it in January. If they do, search high and low for it!

    All the IPAs/ APAs from TG are incredible. For those of you that can't roadtrip to HF.... make the trip out to Decorah... well worth while visit. You won't be disappointed.

    I have to spread the local love. Deep Ellum IPA is great IPA not well known outside of Dallas....

    Those from the Midwest probably know about it but I'd say HopJuice Black by Two Brothers. One of the best Ive ever had

    Horny Toad IPA, Mogollon. Not Best, but damned good.

    After I walked out of the brewpub I would have said Devils Backbone 8 Point...after getting a bottle of it in trade I may regret that statement

    I get growlers of IPA from a local vineyard/ brew house called westbend vineyards in lewisville NC. Doesn't even have a name and is very new. But a fresh growler for 15$ at 8.5 abv and it's very good.

    Galaxy Pale Ale - New England Brewing Co.

    Only served in growlers and on tap at a few local pubs... Although I love my Ghandi Bot, sometimes I'm more in the mood to drink this absolutely delicious concoction.

    What a shame for all those who have no access or distribution of this fine beer. :( It is very disheartening.

    I'm no expert on IPA by any means but i thought Fat Tug from Driftwood was really great. I see only 64 reviews on BA

    Just came back from Portland and was floored by any IPA/IIPA from Boneyard Brewing. All delicious!

    Good call. I'd also throw in Rail Splitter from Triton, also out of Indy.

    Wow! I just read 6 pages of this thread hoping to be enlightened. A grand total of two of the beers mentioned are available in Texas.... Southern Star Pro Am '12, which was a limited that was brewed a couple of months ago and was totally amazing. Had one tonight and unfortunately, it's taken a serious dive.

    ...and Alpha Dog, which I bought the day it arrived at my store...very mediocre.

    Either I need to move, or I need access to better IPAs.

    Oh...and St Arnold Endeavour is world class.

    A beer named "thai ipa" sounds like one i'd love to try. And a like for the Greenbush sampler.
