    For those of you who have been asking about Florida we have a new brewery in Jupiter called Civil Society. They are by far doing the best things with hops this state has to offer. They have a hopped wheat that drinks like an IPA called Pulp, Juice, Lil Juice, Subject 1, Subject 2, fresh, Emerald Showers, the list goes on and on. They offer crowlers and I know guys have been sending them out.

    Take your pick among the Kane and Carton brews:

    Head High

    The others are pales or DIPAs, but they're all delicious (Overhead, Boat, HopLab: Citra, etc).

    This is tough for me since they are all pretty different so I'll throw out a few:

    Other Half 2nd Anniversary
    The Brewery at Bacchus King Tut's Hat
    Other Half Suparillo
    Grimm Tesseract
    SingleCut Bon Bon 2X TNT IIPA

    You can't go wrong with any TG hops, except 1492 I didn't care for that one.

    STL IPA from Urban Chestnut in St. Louis, MO. I also dig the Double Wide IPA from Boulevard in Kansas City, MO. Oh and the TIPA from Schlafly is one of my favorites.

    Todd the Axeman gets my vote for Minnesota. It might even be my favorite Minnesota beer for regular drinking

    This is actually a difficult question....especially with all the new releases but I'm gonna take a shot at this:

    IPA: This was the hardest out of the 3...but I couldn't decide between Singlecut Mo'Shuggie and Other Half HopShowers.
    DIPA: Grimm Lambo Door... I know it just got re-released but its amazing.
    TIPA: All Green Everything....IMHO you don't even realize your drinking a 10.5%ABV beer. Well Done.

    So many good IPAs coming out of NY its hard to make a decision...Cheers !!!

    Came here to say this (rather, agree with those who already said it). It might be my favorite beer right now, period.
