FatCat's 2011 IPA shootout - 11 beers, 4 guys, 1 winner

Summer is coming and what better brew for summer than an IPA?  We are going to be blind tasting 11 IPA's and rating them with a score of 1-5.  The one with the highest score at the end of the taste bud assault will be the king of the IPA in Kansas City.  Who will it be?

Bell's Two Hearted Ale
Boulevard Single Wide
Great Divide Titan IPA
Odell IPA
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
Goose Island IPA
Sam Adams Latitude 48
Founders Centennial IPA
Schlafly Export IPA
Bear Republic Racer 5
Arcadia IPA

My initial thoughts on the winner is either the Two Hearted or the Odell IPA.  I've never had the Odell but I did try the Myrcenary the other day and it was awesome!  So with my powers of reason I think the Odell IPA should be awesome as well.  Results will be posted soon after the impending hangover.
