COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours yellow with light head. Aroma is fresh, fresh grass, different fruits, sweet berries, floral notes. Taste is quite same, fresh - a lot of flowers, and fruits, some resin. Quite soft and easy. After reveals strong hops and lilac. Very nice beer!

Pours straw color with a light orange hue and fluffy white head. Aroma is orange zest with sappy pine. Flavor offers more tangerine sweetness with only mild bitter kick and a subtle tartness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (327) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
The Stone Go To is a top end session IPA. Citrus, Rind and a touch of dankness combine in a very fresh hop profile. Lots of body and richness for a session IPA as well

BOTTLE. See through lemon to gold pour with thin white head.. Big sweet hoppy nose, pineapple & passionfruit seems to be prominent.. Sweet fruit hops throughout the taste, passionfruit ice cream vibe in the middle, finishes fruity still with a good acidic bitterness that lingers.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel
