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.

Dapierce17 (110) - Pasco, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a clear golden with lacing white head. Abundant aromas of citrus and pine. Very crisp. Taste is surprisingly easy drinking but heavy on flavor. Lemon citrus with floral notes. Hard to believe its such a lite beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473ml can. Clear golden yellow with a foamy white head. Flavors are cereals, pine and grass with spicy and woodsy notes. Light to medium body, good carbonation, slick texture.

Tezminator (81) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2016
Looks amazing in a glass. Aroma of tropical fruits. Proper pine hit, but also taste of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Also some hints of passion fruit. Nice peppery mouth-feel. It is a beautiful beer.

Spab (3485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2016
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden orange with large, lasting, rocky white head. Aroma is big on pine with some nice citric notes as well as a bit of pepperiness. Flavour has big pine, grapefruit, mango, lemon and some pepper. Quite dry in the finish. Impressive.

Frothmeister (741) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2016
473ml can. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a HUGE head of Belgian Tripel-like bubbles. Smells AWESOME. Grapefruit, lemon candy, light wet concrete notes, faint black pepper. SMELLS so much like a Belgian with North American hops. Taste wise, metallic bitterness with tropical fruit, a faint soapy note, more Belgian yeast and lemon rind that heads into soapy, lemon notes with mineral bitterness in yeasty finish. This is AMAZINGLY flavourful for 4.8%, and not at all what I was expecting. Solid stuff.

QcBeer (149) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
De couleur jaune pale transparente, elle nous montre une mousse solide avec une mince effervescence. Un nez houblonn, la mandarine et la rsine de conifre en premier plan, mais le fruit lemporte. En bouche, une force raisonnable de rsine est mise lpreuve au dpart. Louverture ensuite par les fruits tropicaux nous amne aussi son lger cot malt de caramel sucr. Une finale amre sche qui tant vers le citron, les fruits tropicaux et le malt. Excellent produit

humlelala (1329) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2016
(On tap @ Bootleggers) Poured at fridge temperature into branded Bootlegger shaker reveals a hazy golden body with two fingers of persistent, creany white head that leaves beautiful lace. Aroma is hopforward with west coast notes of citrus fruit and grapefruit. Watery texture, mediun carbonation, light body and a lingering, crisp finish. Fkavour holds a modest bitterness and little to no sweetness. Decent; well executed and drinkable but it seems a bit old school now compared to those NE style fruit juice pale ales exploding onto the scene. Also at 9 euro per pint its overpriced even by Copenhagen standards.

Beers0mniac (122) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Golden yellow color with minimal white head. Strong grapefruit, pine and hops aroma. Loads of grapefruits in taste,light mouthfeel. Citrus finish. Overall lots of taste and easy to drink. Very nice

BadgerTap19 (5) - Coogee, AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2016 The aroma can be a bit musty, but the ultra-hoppy flavour is sensational. Very pale in colour its soft and tingly on the palate, big hoppy finish and a very pleasant after taste. Love it.
