    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.

    Bells Two Hearted. The midwest is lucky to have this one.

    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.

    I completely agree, one of the smoothest, yet flavorful IPA's I've had.
