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.

Fantastic Light Blond Session IPA. Very fruity. Clean mouth in the end. Really dry. Late Check-in @London

Bottle. Clear gold with an inch of white head. Bright aroma of melon, grapefruit, a little hay and caramel, pine. Strange touch of capsicum. Lightish bodied, easily avoids the emptiness of some of these SIPAs - but then, it is 4.5%. Grapefruit is more prominent in the taste, which is fairly dry and quite bitter. Lesser tropical fruit and piney notes, malt is not doing much but is firm and pleasantly clean. Pretty good.

Grass, valencia orange, little resin. Early citrus in taste before hop flavour hits. But it is lingering bitterness at the end that makes drinker forget it is only 4.5%. 330ml, 1.26std drks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Hrm. Nose is zingy with piney hops, with notes that are also tropical fruit, citrus, body odor, possibly dank but I’m not sure. Malts are very very dry and thinned out, this beer is bordering on hop water, with a lingering spice and herb bitterness at the finish. It’s alright. Pale golden color.
