    It's good to see Sweetwater IPA getting some props here. It's my go-to local option.
    I'm stoked that Clown Shoes Galactica is rumored to be year round now. If so, it will pretty much always be in my fridge.

    Very hard to pick just two. But if I go for straight up taste and solid consistency for a year round release I would have to say:

    -Stone IPA
    -Sierra Nevada Torpedo

    I can answer APA with Dale's Pale Ale.
    I can answer IIPA with Hoptimum.
    I don't have an answer for IPA yet. I'll keep having fun trying to find one though!

  29. If I just consider 2 criteria:
    1. how much I enjoy it
    2. how often I drink it
    it comes out like this...

    1. Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA
    2. Bell's Two-Hearted Ale
    3. West 6th IPA

    everything else is far, far behind.

  36. Finest Kind, and lately a lot of Founders All Day IPA. Most of the time my go to IPA is the one that's freshest between a dozen or so different IPAs.

    Available everyday IPA has got to be Troegs Perpetual. That stuff is dynamite when it's fresh. Double IPA, unquestionably Evolution Lot No6. Within a month or so of bottling, that one can compete with any DIPA out there IMHO.
  39. ledzeppelin4

    ledzeppelin4 Savant (410) Illinois May 18, 2011

    Two Hearted followed by Stone IPA
  40. CBlack85

    CBlack85 Advocate (555) South Carolina Jul 12, 2009 Beer Trader

    Two Hearted
    Racer 5

    and as a local option Westbrook IPA
