Did Stone Just One-Up The Session IPA Market – We Think So

Stone Brewing’s (Escondido, CA) new Go To IPA (4.5% ABV, 65 IBUs), Session-Style IPA, is a massive hop-bomb packed with flavors of melon, citrus, spicy hops, and dank earthy hops. The massive hop flavors are derived from hop-bursting; high amounts of late hop additions and whirlpool hop additions. Dry-hopping adds a big blast of hop aromas, and the dry highly bitter finish rivals the bitterness level of your average full-strength IPA.

Stone uses Magnum (first wort hopping), El Dorado, Mosaic, Citra, Sterling, Ahtanum, Crystal, and Cascade (lightly) hops in their Go To IPA.

Fantastic Session IPA!
