Spiegelau, noted for its premium wine glasses, collaborated with Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada to design the perfect IPA glass to showcase the aromas of American hoppy IPAs and to maintain the rich foam cap. I don't know if this is the best IPA glass in the world but it is a very nice one. Its elegant and it fits in the hand very nicely. Give it a gentle tap with a fingernail and it rings like a bell. Its lightweght and fragile - outdoors in a 10 mile per hour wind, do not expect an empty glass to stay on the table.
If you do not want to invest in a Spiegelau glass, the 20 ounce Libbey Craft Beer glass costs less and is more durable.
You can also drink an IPA in a standard pint like the Libber 16 Ounce English Pub Glass, Nonic Pint, the standard shaker pint glass or a tulip glass.
