Hoppy beers represent 77% of the top 5 beer styles on Beeradvocate (by number of reviews), which ones are the best? To find out I charted every single beer for Imperial/Double IPAs, American IPAs, and American Pale Ales by review average and total number of reviews. Heady Topper appears to be at the top. Side note: There appears to be a lot of really bad Double IPAs and mediocre pale ales.
