Since Day One, Stone has been abundantly forthright and fully transparent about their lust for hops. It's led them 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, they embrace their 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, Stone employs hop bursting, a technique wherein an irrational amount of hops is added during the final phase of the brewing process to bring 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 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.
