    I haven't had too many in cans as of yet but I really like Caldera IPA in a can. Nice and citrusy

    Agree about Hop Crisis. Completely forgot to mention it myself but may be on the top of my list. Like Burton Baton in a can.

    I'm going to be in DC in about a month for work. Is "OTWOA" a special release or regularly available? I would love to pick some up...just not sure if it will be easy to find? I will be staying in Tysons Corner, but will also have a car.

    So, I take it we're using "IPA" in the expansive sense?

    In that case (no particular order):

    Heady Topper
    Tallgrass Ethos IPA
    21st Amendment Back in Black

    Honorable mention to: Sixpoint Resin, Schlafly Session IPA (surprisingly impressed)

    Heady, Abrasive....these are all great beers being mentioned, but we need a single IPA on this list, in my opinion. I nominate Sea Hag. Great 6% IPA in a can! Great price too!

    I was using the general IPA reference which would include IIPA/IPA, but should have been more specific in my question,good point
