Stone Go To IPA, the brewery’s session IPA, marks the third canned offering by the Escondido, California based brewery. The beer is proceeded by Stone IPA, and Arrogant Bastard in cans.
Stone Go To IPA is the brewery’s lower alcohol beer released in early 2014, while still carrying Stone’s hoppy seal of approval.
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.
Stone Go To IPA will be available starting June 6th in 16 ounce cans. The beer is currently available on draft, and 12 ounce cans.
