    Have to say, Jai Alai would go up top here. As far as readily available, Anti-Hero and Two Hearted.

    I actually had a sixer with the same canned on date and thought there was something off about it. I bought another sixer on 9/21, no born on date but it tastes excellent. So just a bad batch I guess.

    Good idea! I wonder how it would taste to pour 5 of the best ipas into one glass?

    Cans are subject to temp. change much more quickly than bottles, I only get them (cans) when they haven't been refrigerated yet for that reason.
    Did you buy the cans cold?
    I always forget about Hop Notch, and its just delicious.

    I'm drinking an Alesmith right now, rated world class on BA and 100 on rate beer and I wouldn't rate it close to Two Hearted. First time I saw it in the store, but I noticed it's stamped 7-2-13. Still, I've had older Bell's that tasted a damn sight better.

    Fresh anti-hero. just had some week old and its magical. Hard to tell sometimes though, they don't date on can.

    Double Jack is the most accessible DIPA for me that I enjoy. I can get it anywhere even at my local supermarket.
