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 a copper color with a white head. Weaker pine aromas at the nose with some citrus. Lightly bitter for an IPA.

Bottle from wholefoods. Unclear golden body with a medium white head. Pineapple, grapefruit, hops, tropical fruit, lime, peach. Nice and smooth.

TourDeBeer (123) - your mummas pants, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2014

Jamesthebrit (415) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Aroma is really good like lots of citrus. But the palate is so gross... Lingering gross bitterness that takes forever to fade. Total garbage.

burg326 (5265) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Poured a cloudy goldish color with aromas of grapefruit, pine, light tropical fruits, and some light grain. Flavors match the aroma, very sesionable, and drinkable.

docsteigs (542) - Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Stone has done a very nice job here with a session IPA which favors hop/bitterness over balance (by design). Very nice american aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is bitter bit with even more prominence of hop flavors. Hop burst worked! Beer is definitely malt-light with a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Huge grapefruit and pine in the bouquet – even some tropical passionfruit. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation - more body than expected. The flavor delivers citrusy, rindy bitterness – bordering between medium and heavy. Finishes acrid, bitter and dry.

Troupis (204) - - JUL 16, 2014
Strong hop aroma followed by a bitter, acute, and distinct hoppy palate. A light beer color with slight cloudiness. I'm pretty sure it's an actual cloud bottled from hop heaven. Bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at alley katz. Pours light copper with white head. Nice hop aroma with a crisp light mouth feel with a nice bitter finish

Draft. Aroma is a funky hop. Appearance is a hazy golden with frothy, white head. Taste is a dank hop flavor. Palate is hoppy. Overall, a good session IPA. Reminds me of lagunitas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
