Vine Pair: The Highest-Rated IPA in Every State
The India Pale Ale (IPA) category continues to surge in popularity across America. With countless IPA sub-styles — New England IPA (NEIPA) and imperial versions among the most popular — trends come and go, but IPA is the most sold craft beer style at chain retailers across the United States.
High in hop-driven florality and fruitiness (or pungent herbs and pine sap, depending on your preference), the IPA and its many iterations are crowd-pleasing additions to taproom menus up and down both coasts, and regions in between.
VinePair consulted BeerAdvocate’s top-rated beers in each state to determine which IPA takes the top ranking with at least 50 ratings, inclusive of all IPA sub-styles.
