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.

prawlie (1565) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2017
Can. Lovely perfumed hop aroma on a somewhat opaque orangey beer with a generous head. Zesty hop bitterness. Fairly easy drinking but top hop heavy for my tastes.

Looks like a full on IPA, possibly a bit brighter and lighter but looks pretty great. Aroma of pineapple, pine, hop, toffee citrus - pretty excellent. Taste is quite good but not perfect. You still get a bright citrusy hop profile and a touch of malt but I cant shake the club-soda feeling - too watery in the finish and too bubbly on the palate. Perhaps on the weaker end of Stones pale ale offerings, but still well above average.

johndoughty (5306) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2017
Can Brewed in Germany. Lovely fruity aroma with citrus and hoppy flavours. Amazing amount of body for its relatively low strength.definitely flavour packed. A must try.

jesperhammer (4606) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2017
16-APR-2016, can @Kregme Boxen, from Boxbeers. Hazy golden with a lasting, White head. Aroma is grape fruit, pine and sweet malt. Taste the ssame. Not really a low ABV but perhaps it can still pass as a session IPA. Quite bitter. Very nice in the sun.

Bloke (28) - Wei Hai, CHINA - APR 18, 2017
To be honest this was a lot lighter than I expected from stone. Not nearly as hoppy and while I get that its a session ale we had a few better session ales tonight from uk and Australia.

herrklemann (162) - AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2017
Can, brewed at Stone Berlin, bought at Interspar Murpark Graz. Pours a nice amber, with a big, off-white head. Aroma of pine, lime, grapefruit, slightly herbal, slightly tropical. Taste ist very lightly sweet, with a lasting medium bitter finish - good balance! Very smooth, medium body, with lively soft carbonation.
Very good. Nice balance.

Bontus (793) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2017
Session can 33cl from Geers. From the can so no appearance rating. Smell is piney and slight cheesy hops. Aroma is fresh hops of different kinds, no hars aromas, very silky palate and good strong bitter taste with a long finish, certainly for a session IPA. A perfect style example.
