    Yep, that beer is tits.
    I was drinking Pluff Mud out of the can last night well helping a buddy move. I don't like all the HC beers, but that one is consistently delicious.

    I am more of a beer punk.

    I KNOW! But beer nerds are just awesome at drinking beer. Discussing hops is to beer what discussing fins or volume is to surfboards.

    I was at a food truck rally in Raleigh NC and I tried a Carolina Brewing Co. IPA that was decent.

    How are you getting Heady Topper in Delmarva? Just curious. If I am passing by the brewery for work I will pick it up, but the distribution is very limited. Bars 30 miles away cant get it, and the local stores sell out by 9:08am on the day of their shipment.

    Friends up North and UPS/FedEx. Pliny the Elder is another good IPA that shows up on my doorstep every once in a while.

    Friends recently went to Hill Farmstead in VT, brought me back growlers of Double Galaxy, Susan, and Double Citra, all amazing, Double Galaxy for the win. Also had some Lawson's Finest, great IPAs as well. Just had Founders Harvesy (Fresh Hop Ale) was pretty damn good. Locally, Three Brother's Admiral DIPA is solid, a bit sweeter for me, but still very good. Their session IPA is probably my favorite in that category, Drift.

    This is the best non-surfing thread ever! Love my IPA's and got some great ideas from multiple posts.
    Couldn't agree more with the Sculpin, so delish! I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Green Flash West Coast IPA... that is an amazing beer, but as pricey as Sculpin.

    Being in the Mid-Atlantic I'm very partial to the local/regional breweries of the area and my top 3 are:

    Victory Hop Devil/DirtWolf
    Troegs Perpetual IPA
    River Horse Hop-a-lot-amus

    The purpose of this post is to say that over the weekend I visited the Starr Hill Brewery in Charlottesville, VA and I would seriously consider putting their Northern Lights IPA in my rotation.

    I do like Troegs. I really like Exit 4 by Flying fish even though it's not IPA. It's smooth and high in alcohol content.

    Ive been hitting the Cape May Brewery few times a month and picking up a Growler here and there. The Cape May IPA is excellent

    Dude yes! Just tried the Hop-15 on Saturday and it was delicious. Had the wipe-out a ways back as well. Haven't tried the mongo yet but it's on the list. I'm also suprised more people haven't mentioned Lagunitas. Thier IPAs are for sure some of the best and most consistent I've tried. The Maximus and lil sumpin' sumpin' extra IPAs are bomb.

    Agree on the cape may ipa. glad to have a good local brewery around here. they are doing it right and have a lot of great beer and great atmosphere.
    Im really liking the Terrapin Hopsecutioner right now.
    Flying fish Hopfish is always a great choice
    And when i get down south, you cant go wrong with Sweetwater IPA or 420 Pale Ale.
    Tuckahoe IPA was a massive dissapointment.... out of the bottle at least. $11.50 for a sixer (ridiculous), barely carbonated(almost flat) and bad taste.
