Had Saga for the first time the other night. So delicious... I had four.
Sierra Nevada Torpedo but as of late I have been enjoying this local beer from Newburyport Brewing Company called Green Head IPA..Fantastic hop bomb that is incredibly fresh in a can! Go get some.
Berkshire Lost Sailor IPA. Hoppy AND Malty.
Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin' and Hop Rod Rye. Honorable mention to Finest Kind.
At least pale and stout are adjectives; how does one go about being "extra India Pale"?
90 Minute and Stone IPA. For a while it was Two Hearted, but recently re-discovered just how awesome Stone, especially given its availability. Troegs Perpetual is also up there.
If I was going with stuff thats always around it would be two hearted and double jack. My favorite one offs of the past couple years would be Super IPA and Twenty. Pliny is always at the top too though.
Jai Alai and Ranger now that NB is in Florida.
My go to is Anti-Hero, since it's readily available. My favorite would have to be Elevated IPA, though.
Jai Alai when I can find it any of the local stores
More readily available: Sweetwater IPA
Favorite IPA that comes around once a year: Lagunitas Sucks
NEBCO Sea Hag
Ithaca Flower Power
Once I get past the fact that I'm a bit of a variety whore, this is a surprisingly easy answer for me, even though there are a ton of really fabulous IPAs.
Green Flash West Coast IPA
Tallgrass Ethos IPA
I would pick Blind Pig, but it's just too much of a hassle to get my hands on, and if I'm going out of my way to get Russian River, I'm going with PtE and/or Supplication.
Local: El Guapo. Quite Nice fresh.
Torpedo for widely available.
Kane Head High
I'm getting some good information from this thread...sounds like I need to try Kane...
1. Original white rajah was my favorite of all time, before the formula change.
2. dark Horse crooked tree is my go to these days.
I am really digging Uinta Hopnotch right now.
1b. Two Hearted
2b. Founders Harvest
3. I'll give an honorable mention to the ZD...yes, its an IPA.
4. head hunter if nothing else is on the shelf...a little pricey.
7 Seas Brewing - Rude Parrot
Revolution Anti Hero
Torpedo & West Coast IPA. Shout outs to Racer 5 & Two-hearted
Stone IPA and Sucks
and whenever I make the trip; Alpine
Rampant is extremely under rated, as is Ranger!
Only one that I can get all the time AND love is Worthington's White Shield. When I see Ilkley Lotus IPA on cask though, I will get some as it's delicious. Bottled isn't the same, sadly.
Surly Overrated & Furious
when Sucks comes back, Sucks
til then i don't really have a go to
IPA: Stone IPA and The Kind IPA (3HB)
IIPA: Gandhi Bot and ST 2XIPA
right now my fav's are...
Tree house (Brimfield, MA) Julius
1. Ballast Point Sculpin
2. Cigar City Jai Alai
Racer 5 or Hop Rod Rye about equally
If I can't get Heady there isn't really an IPA worth drinking.
Jai Alai is the go to IPA in my household.
Torpedo and, even though it's seasonal, Ruthless Rye or Celebration.
Because those three are great beers and even better values, I drink more of them than any other example of the style.
I would say IPAs that are in constant rotation in my fridge are:
Separate names with a comma.
