Anybody that claims there is a better DIPA than Pliny hasn't had Pliny. I've lived on the east coast all my life, but you have to give credit where credit is due. East coast IPAs tend to be very bitter, but come up short on flavor (generalizing, I know). But some of these west coast guys have mastered extracting the most flavor from the hops. The trick is getting one of these on the east coast with the hop flavor intact, usually not an easy proposition unless it's on draft. Hop flavor leaves so quickly at elevated temperatures, I don't know why they bother shipping warm bottles to sit on warm shelves for months before purchase.
All that said, Bell's was the first IPA I could not put down. It was on draft, and I couldn't get enough. But this is definitely a west coast 'style' IPA even if it's brewed in Michigan, emphasizing hop flavor over and above anything else.
