Santilli should not be the first beer listed in this list of Top 10 American IPAs of 2016. It would not crack the top 10 in my best IPA's of 2026.

Hello chickman, This is the top ten as reviewed by our judging panel in 2016 for our Official Review. Our judges did not review every IPA in existence in 2016. There are too IPA's for us to review in a single year. Santilli was the highest scoring IPA in our 2016 Official Review and thus won the top position for our platform. Cheers! BC
