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.

A good hoppy IPA. Some aroma of citrus and some sweetness, but most of all hoppy bitterness. Good body and long finish. If you like bitter beer, this is for you.

adamnowek (2827) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Hazy orange. Aroma is nice and fruity, mostly with grapefruit. Taste is awful, though; excessive bitterness ruins what is otherwise a great start.
