I gotta go with Columbus in a close one.
I am going to say it has a better rating because Sculpin has a huge distro and White Rajah is only local to Ohio.
Man that's a tough one. When White Rajah is 'on' I think it's the best. But there is some inconsistency. I'm going to say Columbus by a nose over Head Hunter.
In any case, I think all three are better than Scupin. Sculpin in my opinion isn't even BP's best IPA
Well, bought a sixer of what I can only guess is mildly fresh White Rajah, the store just got it in. I started reading some of you guys reviews on it and wow, most of you think it's one of the best beers out of there. I'll give it another shot.
IBUsive is the best IPA I have ever had, Ohio or otherwise.
Been through at least 6 growlers and an ton of pints at the brewpup and can't get enough.
I'm with you and been getting growler after growler. Truly a great beer.
Sounds like I need to pick up some growlers for DLD...
I feel like I should give a shout out to Hoppin' Frog Gangster Frog IPA.. it's pretty good and definitely in the ballpark with all of the IPAs already mentioned..
Take a growler of Anastasia
And for me, the best IPA in Ohio is fresh Columbus. And best double IPA, well, that's Columbus Bodhi. It just is.
I was underwhelmed with Gangster Frog.
I thought the flavors weren't quite as bold as the aromas, but were still good, imo..
It wasn't bad, but I thought it was a little thin. I could have had a tired palate, too.
I'm currently drinking some Gangster Frog and I agree with the above. Big nose, that the taste doesn't quite live up to and a tad thin. It's still a really solid brew and the best IPA HF has made. Though I'd rather pay the same price for Columbus or a buck or two more for HH or WR.
Difficult question to answer so I will say Alchemy Hour, Head Hunter, and BODHI are tied for my favorites. Fresh White Rajah (preferably on tap at TBK) is good but, as stated, has been a bit off lately, possibly due to some loss of quality control with recent increases in batch production. Also in the line-up is IBUsive and Hop JuJu from Fat Heads and Supernova from Willoughby Brewing Company.
where is the Lake Erie Monster !!!
Columbus $8.99 @6 YOU CAN'T beat that ......
Headhunter also makes OHIO proud
For the arm pit of America ohio is doin' ok beer wise today
still seekin' Bodhi cheers
HOPPIN' FROG raw was good but to me bombers are over priced
One more thing I think we can kick Colorado's #ss
thanks as I see I need to look for this ibusive or something like that ; )
Head Hunter is my choose and George Dickel kills it in the Whisky category,esp the 21 yr old.Cheers
Head Hunter followed by White Rajah. Rye of the Tiger is pretty good. Columbus is decent but not on the level of the others.
at $8.99 a 6 what's better buy ??????
Thought that only came in four packs?
OP asked what was the best IPA, not the best value IPA. Sorry but I'm going for taste. We only get Great Lakes in MI out the beers mentioned and it's $9.99. I'd rather pay $1 more for a better tasting brew
& what would that be so I can persecute you ; )
Mich don't have a ipa @ $8.99 @ six ( at least one your gonna brag on ) , I also believe its one of the best .
Balls in your court
Just out of curiosity, where did two hearted fall?
You are not from Ohio and I think one of use needs to send oh a white rajah ASAP!
Road tripping from Indiana to Vermont end of June. It's on my ToDo list!
Let me know a week or two in advance, sometimes it's sold out so I can gab a six to make sure u get some!
