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.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 Deliciously hopped, easy drinking IPA. I have literally not been able to fault stone brewing at all so far, all their brews have been excellent. Explosive , I guess almost metallic hop burst (in a good way) but won't give you a headache come the morning.

Bijl (776) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2017
Licht oranjegeel, witte volle schuimkraag, iets wasig en redelijk koolzuur. Aroma: Tropisch, mango, grapefruit, citrus, ananas, passievrucht.  Moutig backbone die onvoldoende is bij deze ABV, iets karamel en iets zoetig.  Licht pijnboom/hars en aardig grassig/mossig/wiet. Smaak: zo zeg.... volle BITTER! Love it! Grassig en harsig. Zoetje uit de mouten, tropisch fruit in de nasmaak. Top! Session IPA zal wel... maar deze heeft een kick! Onder medium body, grassig en netelig mondgevoel, voldoende koolzuur, ag dronk is tropisch, bitter en droog. Mooitje.

Can. Really good mandarin peachy aroma. Nice enough IPA. The mandarin theme continues, then a big bitter wet paper finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PietS (370) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
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 (3195) - 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.

3.4
alexmate (259) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Yellow\golden coloured. Gorgeous smell of grapefruit, mango and lychee. Taste is similar introducing some grassy hops and orange oil. Let down by a really thin watery texture. Price Paid: £1.99 - 330ml can as Stone Berlin.
