DFH90 isn't even in the same league as Pliny, Ruination, Maharaja, Exponential Hoppiness, Hercules (I could go on) - its not bad, but the continual hop gimmick doesn't lend itself well to Imperial IPA, IMO.
To me, most EC IPAs are too sweet, too dark and in some cases cloying. A lot (not DFH60) are pretty low on hop flavor. I do like DFH 60 and GL Commodore Perry, but that is about it - Hop Devil is a dissapointment. However, I have never had the ones Wahoo mentioned.
However, I could rattle off 15-20 IPAs that I absolutely love that all come from Colorado west.
Excited to be going to the opening of Southern Tier distribution in Florida this evening ( a bar is opening their taps today!) - I hear their IPAs are top notch.
BTW, Torpedo is pretty tasty, but it didn't live up to all the buildup hype and excitement that I got carried away with - but I have no problem buying an occasional sixer
