    DIPA is a style I sort of lost my taste for this year. I did enjoy all of the beers in the Magnify Woah series but for the most part did not seek out DIPAs to try. I guess i'm just to into balance these days.

    I'm with you on catching some grief. Dinner is over hyped over priced and a crazy line.

    My favorites are always littered by Tree House and Trillium, so I separated these into a separate category...

    3 new to me (TH/Trillium category):
    Trillium - Headroom
    Trillium - DDH Congress Street
    Tree House - Very Hazy

    3 new to me this year ("the rest"):
    Lawson's - Sip of Sunshine
    Castle Island - Swipe Ripe
    Grey Sail - 5th Anniversary (11.2% but there is no official "Triple IPA" category)

    I just had regular Ozone this past week and loved it, I can only imagine how good the "squared" is. People sleep on Nothing Gold as well, I find it more drinkable than Swish...

    New to me 2016 all from around the state.
    Brew Kettle El Lupulo Libre; giddy as Hell for this DIPA, which is dangerously drinkable & a must have every time I'm on-site.

    Columbus Creeper; haven't gotten my hands on Bodhi but this is pretty damn tasty, can only imagine what awaits w/Bodhi.

    Jackie O's Mandala Single Hop; pretty damn smooth & tasty for a single hop DIPA.

    Gotta get my hands on some Hoofhearted stuff, I hate to roadie & fanboy in a line but the word on the streets is hard to ignore.

  32. GimmeASchlitz

    GimmeASchlitz Initiate (168) Apr 4, 2016 Massachusetts

    I would say my top 3 this year would be:

    1. Lost Nation - Mosaic
    2. Long Trail - Space Juice
    3. Alchemist - Heady Topper

    Runner ups would be Stony Creek Big Cranky, Trillium Vicinity, Uinta Detour.

    Heady Topper honestly is usually on my top 3 for DIPAs because I just can't get enough of it.

    1. Singlecut's Softly Spoken Magic Spells.
    2. Tired Hand's Double Mango Milkshake
    3a. Enjoy By Unfiltered. The California version. The subsequent Virginia prototype was probably the biggest let down of 2016.
    3b. Tired Hands's Technicolor Splendor.
  36. avas

    avas Initiate (0) Apr 30, 2014 New York

    My top 3 DIPAs overall:
    1. Tree House Very Hazy
    2. Tree House King Julius
    3. Tree House Haze

    My top 3 DIPAs not from Tree House:
    1. Sand City Infinity + ONE
    2. Monkish Foggier Window
    3. Grimm Afterimage
  37. Giantspace

    Giantspace Champion (839) Dec 22, 2011 Pennsylvania

    South of eleven....Hoof Hearted
    Wet when slippery (mango).....Hoof Hearted
    Softly spoken magic spells......just had it.
    Navaja.......Half-Acre...16oz cans
    Nimble Giant....Troegs

    not a big DIPA fan but these were very order above......Hoof Hearted was so far above the others as far as taste and quality.I would buy them over and over. I brought a growler of South home as well as others not DIPA. Cans were not available.
