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.

DavidSvinth (216) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Gul og tåget med hvidt, varende skum. Heftig humlearoma. Citrusfrugter og gran - klart og behageligt. Bitter og tør smag. Klart defineret aroma og smag - lige det jeg godt kan lide ved øl. Den køber jeg igen!

Tap. Hazy yellow orange body. Pretty awesome. Bright, bitter, crisp. Citrus rind, juicy orange zest. Pretty excellent beer.

Pyobon (1481) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
(Bottle) Pours cloudy golden amber with good white head. Lovely aroma of pine with lemon hints. Medium body with nice bright carbonation. Great taste starts with refreshing fruitiness (grapefruit and hints of pineapple) giving way to nice hoppy bitterness - clear and present, but not overwhelming. Great session IPA.

3.5
jjsint (3435) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Can from Marks and Spencer. Drunk at home. Light golden with a large but quickly dissipating white head. Grapefruit aroma at first, then some cantaloupe and ripe guava. Massively bitter taste with aggressive hops all the way to the finish. Nice, especially considering the ABV. If I were to be picky I might say that there's not quite enough balance, but hop heads will love it.

3.4
Nordcore (1606) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2017
Can 33 cl. Orange, hazy with a large white head. Milt hop aroma with some yeast and citrus sense. Light bitter with a mild, ok hop end. GO CFC!
