Notes / Commercial Description:
A vibrant hop-bursted session IPA
First Release: March 2014

Since Day One, we've been abundantly forthright and fully transparent 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 embrace 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. To accomplish this, we employ "hop bursting," a new technique wherein an irrational amount of hops is added during the final phase of the brewing process to coax out extreme flavors and aromas while also imparting a burst of desirably pleasant bitterness. The result is an alpha-acid-rich beer that fans can enjoy more of without missing out on the assertive hop character you, like us, crave. So, sit back and go two with your new everyday go-to IPA and bask along with us in the glory of the almighty hop.

Pours a golden color with a tinge of amber. Smells of hops, hops, and more hops. For being a session I was thoroughly impressed with how on par the scent was. The taste was off from the scent though. It wasn't as hoppy and felt a little lacking though the middle. The beginning had lots of hops but dropped off quickly and lingered for a short while. For being what it is this is a solid beer that I could throw down all day if the occasion called for it. I will be picking up another pack soon.
