    Sequoia Brewing – General Sherman IPA
    Vote local!! Not a lot of distribution like those on the list but a great hoppy IPA!

    Tap It IPA gets my vote. The only thing holding it back from greater recognition is the lack of distribution beyond SLO.

    Firestone’s Union Jack is the best IPA.

    Union Jack! By far the best!

    Union Jack is my #1. Ruination shouldn’t even be on this list since its an imperial IPA.

    Fat Head’s Head Hunter IPA beat Union Jack head to head in the finals of Brewing News National IPA Challenge in 2010…it’s gotta be Head Hunter!

    The omission of both Tap It IPA and Barley Brown’s Pallet Jack is vexing.Why Boneyard and no other Oregon or Washington IPAs???

    Rubicon IPA. Great brew.

    It appears that the beers with the most votes are the same beers with the widest distribution. That makes sense, but it’s too bad these beers can’t be judged on equal ground.

    You’ve got some wonderful IPAs on there but you’re missing two of my favorites: TAP IT and Hoppy Poppy (Figueroa Mountain).

    TAP IT! IPA in SLO is really good. I buy it at Albertson’s in Paso all the time.

    I would say Squatters IPA or Squatters Hop Rising Double IPA.
    Both great brews!

    Smog City is killing it with the Hoptonic and Amarilla Gorilla. My favorite so far.

    Heady Topper is great but at 8% it is a double IPA.
