Although I love trying some of the super hoppy ones and some of the crazy stuff, these are my top 3 as far as smooth, perfection, every single time. Sculpin IPA.... Ballast Point, San Diego Brewery... This beer will change your life. Great in a bottle, even better on tap. Stone IPA, Also from San Diego (Sorry to list two from there, but they really have a solid local brewery scene out there. Outstanding stuff).... But Stone IPA is silky smooth and available at most decent beer shops even on the east coast.... And this was introduced to me last year, and I have really been digging it. They only do cans, but I guess that is a weird SE trend in the beer scene... But these guys make a ton of great beers, but their IPA is my favorite of their whole line.... Again, I have tried dozens if not hundreds of IPAs over the years, but the above are my top 3. If Sculpin IPA was the only beer I ever consume for the rest of my life, I would be very content with that.... When Sculpin first came out, it spread like wildfire in San Diego... We were selling it for like $9.00 a pint and we would blow through 2 kegs a day. I mean, people would come to our spot just because we had it. They would have paid $20 a pint for it. I mean, I think there is cocaine in it or something... I have never seen a universal response to a beer like that. There were smoking hot blonds just taking down pints of this stuff every day. I have never seen chicks drink IPAs, and this is no light one. If you haven't tried it, find it. They sell it at some of the higher end places. I found it in a Wegmans in VA.
