It’s no secret we helped create and popularize West Coast style IPAs (since 1997), Double IPAs (since 2000) & Triple IPAs (since 2006). In fact, IPAs of every ilk imaginable are our bread and (hop) butter at Stone Brewing Co., but we’ll be the first to admit that a night of subsisting solely on big IPAs can be a short one. Enter Stone Go To IPA, our session IPA, boasting all the gloriously bitter, citrusy, piney flavor of our bigger / industrial-strength IPAs, but with a significantly lower alcohol-by-volume (4.5%) allowing IPA fans like us to enjoy more of this amazingly, hoppy beer over a longer session, without giving up any of that gloriously crave-able botanically-driven dankness. Well, OK, when you compare to our bigger IPAs you find that you give up some, as that’s what happens when you dramatically lower the abv. And while we work hard to bend the time/space/abv intensity continuum, we’ve admittedly not yet learned to break it. This comes damn close though.

One of the best Session IPA I’ve ever drank. A little too watery but the rest fits perfect to what I consider a role model IPA.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2016
Can, bought @BOXBEERS. Pours clear yellow golden with a large, lovely, staying, creamy, White head. Aroma is lovely, lots of fresh hops, peach, citrus, grapefruit. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has elegant, high bitterness, grapefruit, citrus, peach. Does get a little flat when it sits, otherwise lovely.

Steffan (67) - WALES - OCT 2, 2016
Big frothy head, three fingers, too much head. Thin texture and watery, piney on the tongue, bitter as you’d expect but the malts doesn’t balance it out. Not an IPA I will go to again.

Villyzzz (91) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Can at home. Pours golden with foamy medium sized white head. Aroma is bitter hops with citrus and pine. Taste is citrus hops with subtle malts to finish. Quite a lot of bitter but not too much to my taste. Bit watery but considering the ABV not bad. Refreshing.

Desverger (8735) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2016
Can sourced from Toft Vin, Copenhagen (canned 1 month ago in Berlin) - pours a golden orange colour with thin white head. Fruity and malty aroma and taste, with a pleasing medley of citrus and tropical fruit, fresh juicy grapefruit, lemon, nice pale malty base, lovely stuff, goes down a treat.

Skinnyviking (8965) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2016
Draught at Banksia. Medium high fluffy white lasting head. Hazy yellow body. Powerful hops bitterness combined with lemon grass grapefruit and pine both in aroma and flavor. Low carbonation. Long dry bitter finish. Impressive for a beer with an alcohol level like this.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2016
Draft. A golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, citrus fruits, and straw, leading to a bitter finish.
