Today, I cracked open an ice cold IPA made by the fine folks over at Stone Brewing out of Escondido, California. It was recommended to me by a bartender friend and fellow aficionado.
When you hear the title “Go-To,” it makes you think of a beer you could really move into your rotation easily and enjoy on a regular basis. I was pleasantly surprised by the truth behind the name.
Taste & Aroma:
This IPA has all the piney tones of a potent IPA, while still somehow maintaining a smooth flavor and minimal bitterness. As listed on the bottle, as well on Stone’s website, they describe how they obtained the unique flavor.
“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.
