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.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - APR 14, 2014
Poured from the tap into a Rogue pint glass. The color is clear orange/gold with a foamy white head and some nice lacing. The smell is bright hops with some fresh hop aroma. Fresh cut grass is in the nose with a tangerine aroma sweetening things up and making it citrus smelling. The taste is nice piney hops with sweet light malty goodness. A nice citrus flavor with hints of tangerine and tangy grapefruit. Much like Enjoy By IPA, the flavor has that same earthy grass taste. The feel is light bodied and goes pretty damn easy. A tasty beer in a light session-able package. Some flavor reminiscent of bigger IPAs but has lightness that is very drinkable.

inbirraveritas (1560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2017
Canned, 0.33 l. Somewhat opal golden colour, bigger sized broad pored white head. Nose brings tropical fruits, bread... Taste of mango, pine and grapefruit, aroma has bread, citrusses, herbs and flowers, mouthfeel is slick. Bittersweet, earthy-resiny finish, which leaves a lingering grapefruity aftertaste behind...

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
