California IPAs

I'm thoroughly enjoying a Green Flash Imperial IPA which just came to NY on the heels of Alesmith Yule Smith, which I also found to be exceptional. In fact, I've been thinking that while I've tried many great and not so great IPAs and Double IPAs from across the U.S., it seems that every one I've tried from California has been, at worst, way above average, whether it be Alesmith, Russian River, Moylan's, Bear Republic, Stone, etc. What is it about California brewers that enables them to produce such great beers of this style?
