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.

Not sure this one is a daily drinker for me. I like it, but I'm not sure how to describe it. I guess if I had to I'd say a light IPA, while light, still big on flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chyba nie do końca rozumiem idee session ipa, którego to to jest wzorcem klasy zero. Rzeczywiście piwo jest dobre, ale ... wole treściwsze piwa, a nie wytrawny ekstrakt z chmielu.

KW92 (1711) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - JUL 20, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana średniej wysokości, drobna, trwała. Oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Uderzenie amerykańskich chmieli! Cytrusy (grejpfrut, limonka), owoce tropikalne, żywiczność. W tle nuty trawiaste i łodygowe.
SMAK: Słodowe. Cytrusy w smaku - konkret! Goryczka wysoka, zalegająca. Posmak ziołowo-herbaciany.
OGÓLNIE: Mocno nachmielone na smak i na aromat. Mega pijalne. Po prostu bardzo dobre piwo.

Linnet (1935) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2015
Lovely aroma bursting of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, passionfruit, light slightly bready maltbase. Golden colour, big white head, lots of lacing. Big bite, lightly sweet, insanely aromatic, but a bit weak. Considering ABV a very good mouthfeel, average carbonation, bitter finish. World class in it’s style.

3.7
kevinator (2860) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Nice take on the style. Strong citrus aroma with grapefruit. Light golden color with a lot of effervescence. Light palate and highly carbonated. Flavor matches the aroma profile with a lasting bitterness.

bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Poured into a shaker glass. Golden color with a white head. Aroma is all hops - floral and piney notes mostly with some citrus in there as well. Flavor has some biscuity malt and grapefruit and pine hop notes. Medium/light body with nice astringency. Solid session IPA.
