Beer: Stone Go To IPA

Style: India pale ale

Alcohol: 4.5 percent by volume

Price: About $10.50 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Whole Foods

Story: New this month, Go To IPA is Stone Brewing Co.’s latest year-round release. The California brewery calls it a “session” IPA, meaning it has a moderate alcohol level but full-on flavor. Session beers are becoming popular among brewers and consumers, and Go To is hands-down the best I’ve tasted. Go To is my new go-to.

Pairing: Go To IPA has a piney, almost minty flavor that pairs well with a range of Indian dishes. Try it with vegetable channa masala from Bombay Darbar in Coconut Grove.
