    Arctic Panzer Wolf is still the most bitter and palate crushing beer I've ever tasted. Can ruin an entire night if you're planning to taste a variety of styles or anything that could be considered delicate or balanced.

    I would say Heady Topper, massive hop blast I could taste in the middle of the night when I woke to feed the baby!

    Wish I could experience it. Had a few trades lined up but both fell through.

    Hahaha! I love the stuff!

    West Coast is a little more toned down version, IMO.

    If it's fresh, it will blow your mind and palate.

    Two Brothers Hop Juice and Founders Devil Dancer, both from 2011. Even after the intense alcohol slap in the ball$ from DD I could still taste the hops throughout the remainder of the night and the next morning.

    I'm really just contributing to this thread because I'm enjoying reading it because it gives me that "hop memory" taste. You know that feeling in the middle of the day when you are suddenly reminded of a great IPA and the taste/smell just comes into your nose/mouth? Is it just me or does this happen to anyone else?

    To rep Michigan I'd say Shorts Liberator lingers pretty decently...

    If you advocates ever get to Wisconsin,try to get a glass or bottle of Black Husky Sproose Joose. Black Husky is probaly the hottest new brewery in WI,they make an Imperial IPA that contains the tips of Spruce trees, that gives it a long bitter finish,its delicious the stores cant keep it in stock,but its insanely intense. Very experienced hop lovers couldnt handle it

    I would also agree this is NOT a bitter ipa. Much heavier on that fragrant beta centric hop IMO.

    Are you looking for resiny bitterness or just straight up bitterness? I love IPA's too and the two most bitter beers I've ever had is Moylan's Hopsickle and Bells' The Oracle. Lots of great suggestions here, BTW. You probably have/had a better shot at getting The Oracle than us out here in Eastern PA.

    On the first page I strongly disagree with Sucks as being very bitter! It's so sweet!! I'd go with Palate Wrecker (not now, but the first 4 pack I got when it was 15 days old), Imperial Mad Hatter, Ruination, and month old Hopslam as my literal palate wreckers.

    Another lingering hop IPA I love is Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. I also would agree that Lagunitas Sucks (while an awesome beer) doesn't have that same hop bitterness of some IPAs

    Had my first Double Jack last night, and don't get me wrong it was good, but I was slightly disappointed. It was bottled on January 8th, would aging help it?

    Maharaja, Hopsickle, Simtra, and Palate Wrecker all have crazy lingering hops.

    For me it has been Ruination and Schlafly TIPA. West Sixth is a close second

    Really? That or a Dreadnaught is usually a starting point for me. Ruination or PW will kill my taste buds, but i think APW is mild compared to others. I think a single IPA is more likely to have a lingering taste or more of a destructive effect on the palate than many of the doubles or imperials that i have had

    The very first IPA/DIPA you ever drink is the one with the longest lingering bitterness. With that said, I still find Hop Wallop pretty bitter.

    I drank a sixer of Schafly TIPA on New Years Eve, and actually found it to not be very bitter at all. I remember thinking that it was one of the better balanced IPA's out there. Good stuff.

    Back in the day before the IIPA style took off, the first time I had Ruination, for the first couple sips I thought "shit this might almost be too hoppy." I'm fairly certain that beer invented the style, and its still a treat to drink

    Mikkeller 1000 IBUs Ultramate. I love a nicely abrasive hop assault, but that was entirely unpleasant.

    I'll second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) the Palate Wrecker. I had one yesterday at about 6pm and I can STILL taste it, and I've brushed my teeth twice since then. I LOVE that stuff !

    Moylan's Hopsickle lingers a good bit, too.

    The Schafly TIPA is one of my favorite, and under appreciated IMO, beers. I dont think it is overly bitter. I think it has a taste that lingers, but its not a bad thing.

    Flying Dog Galaxy single hop series. 10th anniversary stone, heady and palate wrecker would be on there too.

    Totally forgot....should have said on first post.

    Founders Devil Dancer Triple IPA crushes out everything I've seen mentioned.
    If you've had it you know what I'm talking about.
