    Nice post. Have you ever had Exit 16? If not you should.

    Are you saying you prefer East Coast IPA entries to West Coast?!

    Not to mention Heady Topper, Resin and Sea Hag, which I think is a total sleeper.

    Based on their names alone those all sound pretty great! LOL A strong name is always a good sign. I mean, Hop Stoopid, c'mon! :D

    The Yard House in Riverside recently had it on their special chalkboard series. You might want to check other SoCal locations to see if they have it.

    Flower Power
    Terrapin Hopzilla
    Captain Lawrence Imperial IPA (middle ground but delicious)
    Big A IPA
    If you can find a reliable source for FRESH Dreadnaught (FFF doesn't bottle date, sadly) that beer will blow your mind. Better than Heady for me and not apples to apples but I prefer it over Zombie Dust as well...
