Not to be confused with Stone's Go To IPA, this is always a go-to beer for me.

Perfect blend of bitter hops and fruity notes.

Pint pour: Fairly clear, healthy golden color with done visible carbonation and a fair white head.
Aroma, I pick it up from afar here. Terrific hop scent of pine and dank grapefruit. Some malt lurks beneath that as well.
This is a citrus delight of a west coast ipa. I'm surprised I haven't tried it in a long while after only tasting it once prior. Now that I've sampled over a hundred varieties of ipa, I can revisit this here and appreciate the standard. Sweet and sticky grapefruit and pine resin is the impression, and the hops shine like the golden sun. Bitter big time, yet not ending as dry as many would. Creamy medium feel.
Smooth drinking for all this is, which is a perfect example of a beer for those who enjoy hops without much else getting in the way. Not overly complex. Highly drinkable. Grade A stuff.
