Not typically a fan of IPAs because I don't like hops, but this particular IPA was not very strong and tasted very balanced and full, overall very enjoyable!

I've been drinking the double IPA's all winter but since warm temps are finally here in OH I want to get outside and get some work done at least somewhat sober! 8.5% - 11.5% would give me crooked mower lines so this is the perfect combination of great taste and lower ABV.

The color, smell and feel is about the same as other lower alcohol summer brews but taste is that of a higher end beer. At only $17.99 for a 15 pack is a great deal for a hot summer day when working outside.

I was a little sad after ordering when I discovered that this is a session ale :-)
It's one of the few IPAs I've ever had that I thought had too little hops. Nice slightly orangish color with a good off white head. The smell is a nice west coast citrusy smell (cascade hops?). The taste is likewise dominated by the hops although I also get a little watery on the finish; that may be attributable to the lower ABV. It's a good beer although probably not going to be on my regular rotation.

12 oz can, canned on 12/31/15. Pours hazy golden orange with a medium fluffy white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is fruity bready malt with piney hops.

The flavor is bready malts with tangy fruit and piney resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice session IPA - one of my favorites with Stone's Go To IPA.

appearance: Light to golden orange with a one finger head that is pretty bubbly and fluffy
Aroma: Very hoppy with citrus notes. The beer has a malt smell with a slightly off undertone. Kind of some kind of funk
Taste: Hoppy with a light taste. Easy to drink "all day" with the low ABV and a refreshing aftertaste.
Overall: good beer with a great taste. Very popular with everyone who drinks it.
