I'm pretty picky with my IPAs. I'll TRY almost anything saying it's an IPA, but I only repeat on ones that fit my criteria, those being: hoppy bite, relatively heavy texture and a STRONG citrus (i. e. - grapefruit) flavor. The first one I ever tried was like that (What is this, Grapefruit beer? was my question to the Rogue brewpub bartender as I ordered another). Right now there are 2 at the top of my list: 1. Pyramid Outburst Imperial IPA. This was a seasonal last year, but is now year round. It's also 8.5 % 2. Big Sky IPA. Hard to find around here but worth the stop as you go through Missoula, and you can get 4 samples free. I know for some beer snobs, Pyramid is sort of a dirty word, but I let my taste buds do the talking. Oh, and for when the extra $2 a six-pack is a deal breaker, Henry Weinhard's IPA is drinkable.
