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.

Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2016
16 oz can with a BB date of 11-22-16. Slightly hazy golden-amber body with a durable white head and sticky patterned lacing. Popping the top immediately releases a somewhat pungent, fruity hop aroma. Pine notes are obvious after the pour. Flavor: less piney than the aroma with more dominance of citrus notes. Moderate, at most, bitterness. Feel: light bodied with lively but soft carbonation. Overall: an aromatic and flavorful session IPA that’s probably as good as any I’ve tried.

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.
