    This is my choice as well. Fair Maiden was really good and Pieces of Eight is quite a bit better. Up there with anything else I've had.

    Maybe not considered new enough but a recent release of OH's All Green Everything really impressed me, I thought it was the best DIPA I've had in awhile. Though I haven't been able to aquire any Trillium yet.

    I just had Coronado's 19th Anniversary IIPA. Holy moly. That stuff is amazing.

    I've been drinking a lot of Boulevard's The Calling. Great new IPA. Love the style, it's been readily available and fresh in my market.

    Revolution's 1ZNUFF DIPA

    Finch's Hard Chimera DIPA from 2014 but I just found it this year

    I'm assuming that Pipeworks Ninja vs. Unicorn now in 16oz cans will be special as well, had one over the weekend and from what I remember :grinning: it was excellent

    As far as new stuff, my favorite DIPA of this year has to be Neshaminy Creek's "A Good Problem to Have"; though it's brewery-only at the moment. Half Acre's Navaja was a close second (though I don't believe that's actually new this year).

    I have to agree. Square Grouper changed how I drink CH-IPAs. If a can vote the variants of the Grouper base, Crimson Snappeis even better! Best Chi beet of the season, possibly year. Spotted Puffer follows closely behind that.

    The Snapper and the Grouper are my favorite IIPA's of 2015. I can't tell you which one is better but I was completely knocked out by both. I just need to be ready next time Spotted Puffer is released.

    I'm not sure either are world class like the OP asked, but LE/RE Track 7 and Bike Dog Mosaic were both quality beers that stood up well next to King Sue (the mediocre non-Saboe batch), DFH 90, FW DJ, and TG MoZee when a buddy from Sacramento visited in May.

    As far actual 2015 brews, Saint Archer Mosaic fo' sho', though I think their regular DIPA is even a touch better.

    'Course, when you can get stuff like this 14 days fresh, who cares about the latest and greatest?

    I can't stand the people that buy up all the fish series from Pipeworks before us good folk get a chance to buy it. I'm not a truck chaser like some people are and I don't check social media every minute to see what new release came into my favorite place to buy beer. So my answer will have to be Killer Queen and Sure Bet from Pipeworks....and of course Ninja vsUnicorn in cans shot up on my list....3F's makes some really nice iiPA's and I have a Permanent Funeral in my frig I'm going to be cracking open soon, Double Jungle Boogie and Liquid Dreams from Marz Community Brewing, and honorable mentions to 1ZEnuff from Revolution Brewing and for a single IPA I like Vallejo from Half Acre.

    I haven't tried most of beers mentioned in these posts… impossible to get in the NW. So any of those may be better than these, but of the IPAs/DIPAs that I've tried lately I'd say Boneyard RPM IPA tops the list and Deschutes Fresh Squeezed is a good locally-available substitute for those who live around these parts.
