    We get Columbus Bodhi weekly down here (extremely fresh), and it's $10 a 4 pack.

    I pick one up at least every 2 weeks.

    There are two DIPA's I continually go back to: Stone Enjoy By and Union Double Duckpin.

    If I had it more available to me it would be Grace and Grit out of Great Raft in Shreveport, but going to have to wait another couple of years. Probably Maharaja when I am in the mood for a big IPA

    If I see nothing new, and its available, Smartmouth Notch 9 every time.

    When I am in the mood for more than one double IPA I usually grab a six pack of Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Not very exciting to some, I know. But I like it and I can find it fresh without too much hastle.

    Can we just merge ALL of the "favorite/best IPAs" threads together? :rolling_eyes:

    Would have to be Bodhi for me as well due to the freshness factor. I had high hopes for Creeper but I like Bodhi better.

    I guess I'd say Captain's Daughter- reliable, fresh, available. I can't say that I always get it, but most of those times I wind up wishing I did :sunglasses::wink:.

    I know it's not cool any more, but DFH 90 Minute still tastes good to me.

    Being in New England, Heady Topper is the go-to for a beautifully hoppy and drinkable double IPA

    Most of the best beers out here are draft, but sixers of Bottom Cutter @ $12 are a good deal on an excellent imperial IPA.

    No. There are so many good options. Needs to be fresh.

    Stone Enjoy By Series is very solid but more limited. Stone's Ruination is great as well and more easily found. Dogfish head 90 minute is also great. A ton of great options out there - the fresher the better which is why Stone's Enjoy By Series is so great to me.

    I suppose my go to is considered old school now but for me it is Pliny the Elder; I order it every time I see it on tap.

    I wish this beer was available to me in bottles.

    The Double IPA is my favorite style of beer (although I enjoy most styles overall), so I have many that I like immensely. However, to answer the OP question, my go-to is Stone Ruination. Amazing beer, very affordable, and readily available.

    Dank but drinkable - it would never be confused for a NEIPA
