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.

Dal9000 (604) - Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a fading off white head. Immediate aroma of soft pine. Immediate smash of pine that softens but lingers long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Belle couleur blonde, bonne amertume, lgrement herbace, bien houblonne, la bulle est bien fine, le got est pas mal port sur les fruits exotiques et une bonne longueur en bouche malgr le taux dalcool moins de 5 degrs. Une bonne bire dt, et un bon souvenir de la californie...

Orange spritzy look with a decent frothy head. Tart citrus and loads of sweet hops. A different but very nice beer.

Aroma: onions, herbs, wet socks, pine. Appearance: hazy golden color and white head. Taste: medium stalky bitterness, wet socks, spring onions, watery and dry. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, stalky finish. Overall: really poor session IPA, spring onions and wet socks, what the hell ...

MarcinG (777) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2017 Puszka 330ml. Metnawy zloty kolor. Piana biala,srednia,pozostaje w szkle. Wyrazne nuty owocow tropikalnych w aromacie podparte cytrusowym albedo i calkiem porzadna dawka chmieli. Brzoskwinia morela marakuja mango ananas trawa i karmelowe tony W smaku oprocz wspomnianych owocow daje sie wyczuc bardziej zaakcentowana cytrusowa goryczka. Grejpfrut daje cierpki posmak na finiszu.

whiskyjan (9) - Seefeld in Tirol, AUSTRIA - MAY 15, 2017 does not count
Schn viel Hopfen, aber fr mich sogar schon etwas zu wenig Malz. Nicht sonderlich viel Krper und dafr zu bitter

Pours pale amber with a small white head. Lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Crisp citrus flavours dominate. Finishes with some bitterness. Thoroughly decent SIPA.

victorsampson96 (76) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2017
(From the keg) Hazy light-orange beer, with vigorous fine carbonation, and a creamy white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, apricot kernel, pineapple, orange peel, pine needle, and some underlying funkiness. Nicely balanced with a caramel malt, and hints of biscuit and bread. A clean finish. Compared to the other beers in Stones IPA range, Go To is fairly light in both aroma and palate. However, for a low-ABV, session IPA, this is a true gem.
