    Aside from Heady:
    Jai Alai, Sculpin, and Modus Hoperandi are tough to beat.

    I enjoyed it, but it was a tad boozy for me as a IIPA.

    I agree with hi-res and resin even more so. Sixpoint makes magic in a can. I also enjoys me some stowaway ipa.

    Maybe just a touch, but honestly I don't remember it being as boozy as the Double Trouble I'm drinking right now, and that's only in the 9% range. My favorite metric for judging these things is if I'm craving the beer a few months later then it struck the right notes with me; that's how I'm feeling about Hi-Res right now.

    For some reason I really like Centennial IPA in a can on the golf course but of course Heady is the winner.

    never had Ten Fidy, Heady, or Abrasive, so my vote goes to Jai Alai

    If you mean ONLY comes in cans i'd say Sixpoint Hi-Res and Ten Fidy, if you are accepting beers available in bottles as well i'd say Jai Alai.

    Not that I'd turn my nose to any Surly or Oscar Blues as these have been doin' it in cans from the start.
    I'm just happy with the increase in the can innovation.

    Thank you ladies and gentleman, the entire crew at Sixpoint is amped about your praise for our beers. In just three years its been a pleasure to share with you some of our original recipes at Sixpoint in the nanokeg format and we have some brand new nanokeg formulations set to release soon. Of course, you know where to find the chatter about this on this site...its what folks are talking about!

    Sir - HI-RES is most certainly not a double IPA. It has pierced the stratosphere of double IPA and entered the ethereal orbit of triple or quadruple IPA. It is hop juice squeezed into a fermented barley soup stock. Its a hop stew. :-)

    THE SUBSTANCE! I got it as an extra in a trade and I liked it better than my trade beer. I dream of it.

    Laughable beers? Miles below everything else? Ok, since you live in NJ, you are invited down to the private tasting room at Sixpoint (not open to the public) and we'll do a blind tasting of the Sixpoint beers with the others you mentioned, along with some others in this thread. We'll see if our beers are truly *laughable* then. :-)

    Hit me up with PM when you want to do the tasting. Thanks man!

    This thread should be combined with "Best Cheap Beer - Any Suggestions? Price to Satisfaction Ratio" to create ""Best cheap lawnmower beer in a can from the top five cities in the top five states if you could only drink beer from one brewery for the rest of your life if it went from hot to cold or cold to hot for a wedding on a beer vacation."
