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.

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boks på Café Sånn. Aroma dårlig do, sitrus, humle. Utseende uklar gylden med hvitt skum. Smak sitrus, humle, grape. En øl som lukter tragisk, men smaker godt. Det er moderat bitterhet. ---

Davros IX (61) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
An extremely well made and typically "American" IPA. A nice opague orange with a strong aroma and flavour of fruity hops that bely the relatively low abv. A good mouth feel and a flavour that lingered. Theres nothing to dislike, but it was just a bit "clinical."

matstrange (156) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Can from beer52 beer club. Probably the best session ipa Ive had. A little hazy with a thin head but bursting with hoppy flavours, and tones of grapefruit vanilla and biscuits. Very enjoyable, I wish I had more than one!

In a mystery case from beer hawk. Brewed in Berlin at 4.7% not 4.8%. Pours with a good head that disappears into a thin film after 5 mins. Golden very well hopped IPA with a bitter finish. Nice crisp ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well hopped, quite earthy with hints of pine, some dark fruits, lovely bitter finish. Wouldnt imagine it was under five per cent, really full of character. This is excellent.

Got to love this much taste and all under 5% ABV. Can from the LCBO, did not realize this was an import until I got home, all good if those non Trump States decide to come our way. Just a great tasting IPA in a lighter form, citrus, pine tons of hops, looks a bit too clear. I will be back for more of this one
