Each year, the first Thursday in August marks IPA Day, a day for beer lovers everywhere to celebrate the hoppiest of them all, the IPA. Truth be told, it’s a beer style that a lot of us celebrate every day, not just in August. Still, the day offers a fun opportunity to share a selfie of yourself on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #IPAday, and start a discussion about some of your favorites with other beer lovers around the country and the globe.
It’s no secret that we’re fans of the IPA here at Paste. To help kick off the day’s celebrations, I dug through some of our recent side-by-side blind tastings to pull out some of our own personal favorites.
Take a look at some of the beers that took home top honors in our IPA and Session IPA rankings in the gallery above, and be sure to share some of your faves with us in the comments or on social media using the hashtag #IPAday.
