    Central Coast brewing has been flying under the radar, but take a look at all the GABF and World Beer Cup metals they’ve won over the last 3 years in the Pale Ale, IPA, and Double IPA catagories.

    Device, Knee Deep, Altamont

    A little SoCal bias in this list, me think …

    Sante Adairus Simpleton IPA, one of the best anywhere! ! Cooperage and Henhouse in Santa Rosa make great IPAs. If Stone and Sierra Nevada is on the list, Lagunitas needs to be too

    It’s hard to imagine a few of these getting mentioned over Moonlights Bombay By Boat.

    El Segundo has a stellar IPA line up but I wish writers would stop always associating them with the Steve Austin Broken Skull IPA which is absolutely their worst.

    Chauncey, regarding your comment above, you’re asking the writer why they left off ‘sour only’ Rare Barrel in an article about the 20 Best IPA Brewers???

    Knee Deep is overrated in my opinion. Glad you added Kern River (I would have dropped Sierra Nevada).

    Great list but I believe you’re missing rare barrel, even though they are sour only, they do that style almost better than anybody in the world. The Bruery I am surprised isn’t on the list as well.

    Tough getting down to 20 and I’m not sure who you’d bump but its tough leaving off Smog City.
