    - kinda depends on where ya live though too, & what one might have or Not have access to I guess as well.

    Finally got to try Zombie Dust this yr..its Good but i think a bit Over-rated. Ballast's Sculpin is a Real good one..& FatHead IPA too. - can't forget Columbus IPA either. Can't get Pliny around here in Ohio..LOVE to try it though. I hear Good stuff about it!
