About The Beer
Brewery: Stone Brewing Company
Style: India Pale Ale (IPA)
Format: 355ml Bottle
It's 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 we'll 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 flavour 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 that's what happens when you dramatically lower the abv. And while we work hard to bend the time/space/abv intensity continuum, we've admittedly not yet learned to break it. This comes damn close though.

Note: Dates on Stone beers are a freshness date. Some of these are ridiculously short e.g. 30 days from bottling. Beer will be in good drinkable condition for up to one year from bottling.
