    60 Minute for me--delicous even drunk directly from the bottle! 90 Minute too sweet for my taste.

    Troegs Perpetual has been my go to recently, mostly because it is usually fresh and well priced. If I am downstate somewhere it is usually 2hearted, I wish I could get that up here.

    Pliny usually sells out here in Colorado before I can get it, but the one time I've had it, it definitely lived up to the hype.

    Since getting the kegerator we have been swilling $79(great value)logs of "Be Hoppy" from Wormtown and logs of Sculpin. If you can get the Sculpin fresh enough it's really great and still a decent value at $105 per log.

    This is a tougher question for me to answer than it would appear. I like the freshest of the moment, and what I'm drinking at that time, but let me attempt to answer it with the small fudging I see being used.

    If I could only have two regular IPAs, it would be:

    1. Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA
    2. Ballast Point Sculpin

    If I could have only two Double/Imperial IPAs, It would be:

    1. FW Double Jack
    2. Stone Ruination

    I could include a host of 'Special Releases' but I'll stay within the limits of the question. zz^^

    Seeing as I live on an island now that shows no real love for craft beer other then the only craft brewery here (Cisco) I would say my favorite is Indie Pale Ale from Cisco. Occasionally if I am lucky I can find some 60min from DFH but those are my only real IPA options without taking a boat or plane to main land....I miss NC
