    I feel so left out, every person in this thread has managed to find Heady, Pliny, Hopslam, Two Hearted, Enjoy By, the whole catalogue of super-hyped IPA/DIPAs, but me. Only one I've had out of that pantheon is Sucks.
    But anyways, here's my list:

    IPA:
    Ithaca Flower Power
    DFH 60min
    SN Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop Ale
    Founders Centennial
    Ballast Point Sculpin

    DIPA:
    DFH 90min
    ST 2xIPA
    Lagunitas Sucks
    Founders Devil Dancer
    SN Hoptimum

    Appreciate the empathy; I'm sure there are just as many people who never get to try those as do, but eh. I'll get to try most eventually, tracking them down here and there. My next target is to make sure I reserve some KBS at the only spot that gets it in next release...

    You're not alone! I'm getting my first ever 4-pack of Heady on Monday, and while the store I work at does theoretically stock Enjoy By when we can get it, I'm low enough on the totem pole that I've only ever gotten a shot at it once :(

    Good call on the Citra. I didn't list it because technically it's a APA, but it's one of my favorites. Also So Hoppy to Wheat you by Oddsides is excellent.
