    Too many negative forum posts lately, sure this one has been done before, but i haven't seen it.

    What is your favorite IPA/DIPA not brewed in the state you live right now?

    I live in florida and i would say Hill Farmstead Abner

    I can't think of a NC DIPA that's better than average. HT and Abrasive float my boat.

    Pliny the Elder. What is your guy's favorite DIPA without the letter P anywhere in it's name that's not brewed in your state? I'll go with Double Trouble

    I live in WI and I'd say Pliny the Elder for DIPA, and Jai Alai for IPA. NG IIPA is really good too but that's in-state.

    Disclaimer: Have not had Heady Topper.

    Also, Jai Alai white oak. The regular Jai Alai from Cigar City is good, but the white oak is out of this world.

    Never had anything from Alpine but I've got a Nelson on the way via trade. Really looking forward to it.

    Man you need to revisit some WI Ipas if you think they are that bad....

    NG IIPA can run with the big boys no problem, same goes for CW illumination, I know they only come once a year but hey so does Hopslam.

    Ale Asylum Ballistic and Bedlam avaliable 6 months each are super awesome.

    Lakefront IPA.... Check my review for my opinion of that perfection

    Not to mention all the other decent options such as, Tyranena Scurvy and Bitter Women, Rush River Bubblejack

    Tenth Anniversary Ruination, Hopslam, Pliny the Elder. Can't decide. I've never tried them side by side.

    Have you had Foothills Seeing Double or Old Hickory Death by Hops or Highland Kashmir? Those are all better than average and in some cases way above average.

    i just recently had Brew Dog's Hardcore IPA. This wowed me at 9.2% abv with no kick in the teeth. It was all around one of my favorite, unique IPAs.

    You're gonna love it. I had Nelson couple days ago. It had the most unique aroma and flavor I've tasted in an IPA/DIPA. I just finalized a Heady trade this afternoon, so I will finally get a taste of what everyone is raving about next week. :)
