Stone Go To IPA
4.7% alcohol
Brewed in Berlin, this is an extremely hoppy but sessionable IPA. Pale in colour, it’s quite dry and tart with some herbal, slightly earthy hoppy characters and relatively restrained tropical/pine notes on the nose. It’s bright, focused and has some bite on the palate. Quite savoury in character, it’s nice without being stunning. Lacks a bit of harmony, but there’s definitely plenty of bite here. 7.5/10

And here’s another note from a few months ago:

Stone Go To IPA
4.7% alcohol
Brewed in Berlin. A session IPA with plenty of hops. This has a lovely aroma of herbs, spices and some tropical fruit, with just a hint of pine. There’s freshness on the palate: really hoppy with nice bitter bite, but also some sweetness and a lovely fruity balance. Finishes dry but not drying. Exotic and appealing, and very nicely balanced. 8/10
