    ESBC is a WCIPA factory like no other! But really glad to see Fieldwork on this list—top notch brewery with outstanding IPAs!

    No Mother Earth Brew Co??? Boo Koo is one of the best IPA’s in the country! As a San Diegan, I think we have the best beer in the US and Boo Koo is one of the best in San Diego.

    Alpine, Beachwood, El Segundo and Pizza Port are all outstanding, but I’m glad you’re showing love to Block 15 too. I’d also like throw Bale Breaker from Yakima into the mix. Their brewery is literally surrounded by hop farms, and it’s the fresh hop capital of the world every last weekend of September!

    I’d love to be a homer and vote for Fremont (Lush IPA is amazing), but I gotta vote Pizza Port Brewing because Swami’s is probably my favorite IPA of any style.

    No Washington State brewers? Ruben’s, Fremont, and Georgetown are all very worthy and they’re just in Seattle.

    The original Green Flash West Coast IPA defined the genre across the country. It was wonderful.
    Then the idiots changed the recipe. The new version sucked. Several generations later it still sucks.

    The new version of GFB is now part of a “Big Beer” consortium.
    The old GFB company appears to have been dismantled by the former CEO and new Board members with executive backgrounds in “Big BEER” .

    The “Big Beer” group bought GFB for pennies on the dollar.
    The former CEO of GFB now holds an executive position with the new company.

    The original investors In GFB were robbed of all their investments.

    A company, like a fish, rots from the head down.
    What’s that bad smell?
