COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its 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 well 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 thats what happens when you dramatically lower the abv. And while we work hard to bend the time/space/abv intensity continuum, weve admittedly not yet learned to break it. This comes damn close though.

The aroma is all citrus. More bright citrus - grapefruit and a bit of lemon tartness - on the tongue, along with a touch of resiny pine. Which is a pretty good trick for a 4.5 per cent beer. Really tasty - one of the best session beers out there.

Pours hazy yellow with a big white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruits and hops. Grapefruit and pine flavours with a good bitterness. Very well done.

ANZUShophunter (366) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
From can (BB: 23Sept17) in IPA glass. Pours golden with explosive billowing head that would take out a less experienced beer hunter. Grapefruit aroma that carries through to the taste and tart bitterness on the palate. Zesty and refreshing.

Aggiebob (931) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Can. It poured a hazy golden color with a nice white head. The citrusy aroma had notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit with some pine dankness in the taste as well. Medium bodied, but very drinkable.

33cl can. Peach and tangerine fruit and sour candy hop aroma. Flavor is classic grapefruit and piney dry hop goodness. Fairly light-bodied but very tasty and drinkable.

BitchPls (782) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Clear yellow IPA with a huge white foam. Lovely citrussy and fruity aroma. Very good flavor for the ABV. Medium bitterness and has the IPA fruitiness in it which usually is lacking in this kind of session IPAs. Some floral notes as well. Very light and fresh so its easy to drink. Probably the best session IPA yet.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2016 From 160z can: Will have to revisit this one soon. Remember it being pretty nice and smooth compared to a different IPA just previously had. not too bitter not too sweet. Juicy flavor too. im sure it will get a higher rating once i get to this when i have a fresh palate. . . 12/27/16_ Glass: Big grass, mild bitter up front. west coast hops and citrus as it warms up. pretty nice mouth feel for a session. could use a bit more flavor kick, but hey, what do you expect?

Pours a slight hazy golden colour with a frothy warm cap, huge, very long lasting with beautiful foamy lacing. Big aromas of citrus, like squeezing the hell out of grapefruit, orange peel and mixing a little of their juices. Same great taste, a slight milder, but with real bite in the end with the dryness. Wow! This is quite the session IPA. One of the best Ive tried. Wish we could get these year round at the LCBO.
