I have found many far better ales than this one, like the following, all of which have excellent quality and taste IMHO:<br /><br />Victory Hopdevil<br />Samuel Adams Rebel IPA<br />Dog Tag IPA<br />Lancaster Hop Hog IPA<br />Troegs Hopback IPA<br />21st Amendment IPA<br />Blue Point Hoptical Illusion IPA<br />Green Flash West Coast IPA<br />Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale<br /><br />I agree with CR that the following ales are very good, but I don't agree with how CR ranks them:<br /><br />Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (excellent)<br />Lagunitas IPA (excellent)<br />Stone IPA (very good)<br />Dogfish Head 60-minute IPA (very good)

Poor the rest of Sam Adams down the drain and drink this one. I consider myself a beer snob and have never liked Sam Adams beers, this one is a hit. Glad I tried it
