Segment 2 Beer

Stone's Go To Session IPAOur beer segment begins at 9:50

  • Kathe is a newcomer to craft beer. She rates herself a 0.9 out of 100.0.
  • Kathe likes light lagers and some dark beers (thanks to her experience in Germany)
  • We taste Stone’s Go To Session IPA from Stone out of San Diego
  • The term session refers to the limited drinking periods in British pubs, i.e. a session. A session beer is lower in ABV so that more than one can be consumed in a session without getting inebriated.
  • It is only 4.8% ABV and with 65 IBUs
  • It is not especially bitter for an IPA because the hopping imparts aroma and flavor
  • A session IPA that delivers all the fruity, piney character of a much bigger IPA. Stone uses 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.
