Phoenix, Flagstaff, and even Lake Havasu certainly have their share of great local breweries, but according to BeerAdvocate, our state's hoppy pride and joy comes from Tucson.

Cool Material pulled stats from the well-known beer rating site and the results are in: Arizona's highest rated beer is the Dragoon IPA. The local brew got an average rating on 4.17 out of 5 on the site, giving it the lead. The site describes the IPA's flavor as "lots of pine and lots of bitterness." According to Dragoon, the beer is " a true West Coast IPA–it is pale in color, with bracing bitterness, high alcohol content (about 7.3% abv) and a fruity/floral/citrus hop aroma" that pairs well with both pho and pizza. Sold.

Unfortunately, even at 4.17 the beer doesn't make the top 250 highest rated brews in the country, which probably just means us Arizonans aren't voting enough on BeerAdvocate. It's also one of the two brews Dragoon distributes year round, which could explain its popularity over their other options.
