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.

Draft. Clear gold pour, thin head. Nose is citrus, fruit, floral. Flavor is biscuit malt and some citrus. Finishes bitter. Not my cup of tea.

Blond with soapy head. Aroma and flavour have light tropical fruit and quite a lot of resinous, very bitter hop. A bit too bitter.

I feel fantastic hops flavor with plenty of peach, citrus and melon. It is a very drinkable, and feel good for daytime IPA.

freekyp (2083) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2017
A quality full flavored IPA with plenty of west coast character. Big grapefruit and pine notes in both aroma and flavor. Mild nutty malt backbone.

Good IPA - more restrained than some of their beers, which I find a bit much. Good fresh, pine and grapefruit intensity. Nice stuff.

It pours straw yellow with rusty tinges; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: mango, pineapple, pine needles, and grapefruit zest. The tastes is medium bitter. The palate is medium-light bodied; has light carbonation; it has a long finish. Overall, very juicy..

Beer5000 (6264) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2017
330 ml can. Almost clear golden body with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is super refreshing with grapefruit, citric fruit and a bit floral. Flavor is nice and crisp mild, pale malt, lots of grapefruit, some citric fruit and rather good bitterness. Medium body and quite long lasting aftertaste. Straight forward indeed, but so refreshing and well-made that I just got to be impressed. Anytime!

Puszka 330 ml, z Berlina. Piana średnio obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, biała, szybko zanika. Barwa jasnozłota. Bardzo intensywny aromat tuż po nalaniu, głownie cytrusy, ale też melon, ananas, żywica i oglnie leśne nuty. Wyczuć można też odrobinę alkoholu oraz kociego moczu, możliwe, że z powodu Citry i Amarillo lub po prostu utlenienia, lecz nie jest to mocno uciążliwe. W smaku o wiele mniej ciekawie, głownie czuć chmiel i średnio mocną goryczkę, na końcu przebija się odrobina alkoholu, tak samo jak w aromacie. Bardzo pijalne. Generalnie dobre piwo, jednak po session IPA spodziewałbym się trochę lżejszej goryczki i bardziej intensywnego smaku.
