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.

Bontus (794) - 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.

kaserov (524) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 9, 2017
UPDATED: APR 18, 2017 Color amarillo estilo zumo de limn, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacion media. Textura acuosa. Aroma increblemente tropical y citrico, a mango, mucha fruta de la pasin, pomelo, limn, lima... Sabor muy frutal, con todo lo previamente citado, increblemente sabrosa y fcil de tragar. Amargor mnimo pero persistente (algo seca). Una verdadera delicia. IPA, APA o Session IPA... me da lo mismo. Cervezn. No veo porqu he de comprar otras IPAs o DIPAs de Stone pudiendo beber varias de estas (ms sabor, menos alcohol) a menor precio.

Gary (1972) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2017
330ml cans of ice cold suds . Drunk with the opening round of the Masters golf tournament on sky tv . I complacently expected a hop punch ..to compensate for this being low boost. And instead of a hop orgy ,theres some nice ,but subdued resin , maramalade , sap and juicy sappy bitterness texture. A very mild in character USA low-boost-golde .
