Beer Review: Stone Go To IPA

The Stone Go To IPA from Stone Brewing is a session IPA that comes in at an ABV of 4.5 %. Highlighted by the things that we enjoy about India Pale Ales, it looks to provide all of that in a nice thirst quenching modest ABV level.

Commercial Description:

Since Day One, we’ve been abundantly forthright about our lust for hops. It’s led us to craft many an IPA, most of them imperial—some intense for their time and all timeless in their intensity. For Stone Go To IPA, we’ve embraced our hop obsession in a new way, funneling an abundance of lupulin-borne bitterness into a “session” IPA that delivers all the fruity, piney character of a much bigger IPA at a more modest ABV level.

To accomplish this, we employed “hop bursting.” The result is an alpha-acid-rich beer that fans can enjoy more of Without settling for less of the assertive hop character you, like us, crave.

Malt: Pale, Light Crystal and Vienna

Hops: Magnum, El Dorado, Crystal Cascade, Experimental Hop Steiner 06300, Mosaic (dry hopped), Crystal, Ahtanum, Sterling, Citra (dry hopped) and Cascade Hops (dry hopped)
