Go To IPA by Stone Brewing Co.

Available at Wise Guys for $10.99 / 6pk nr

 

Beer Style:  IPA (or India Pale Ale) is a beer that focuses on bitterness and hop profile. Originally made with extra hops to withstand long sailing trips, they have evolved into a “cult” beer style in the USA, with many breweries producing them.

 

Appearance:  Golden, slightly orange-ish yellow, some haze with 1.5 inch head and perfect lacing.

Aroma:  Tropical explosion. Grapefruit heavy.

Taste:  Tropical fruits, white grapefruit, some spice on end. Some bitter lemon as well, alcohol hidden well.

Mouth-feel:  Full-bodied IPA mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Overall:  This is Stone’s foray into the “Session” IPA category. Session IPA’s have lower alcohol than your normal IPA. As expected, this beer delivers! (Stone is known for their over-the-top brews.)

For a session ale, this is well done—it is a bitter tropical fruit bomb! Stone is using a different technique to extract more hop flavor for this beer, and it clearly works well! 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a brew that had such high expectations, and delivered so well! This beer is a new addition to the Stone lineup and a “must-try.” 

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
