Pours a golden straw color with a thin white head that leaves a good lacing. Smell is hoppy with a hint of citrus. Taste is perfect for an ipa, sweet malty flavor with a kick of hopps to finish. Mouthfeel is perfect, not watery nor greasy. Remember ithis is NOT an imperial or double ipa. This is an excellently executed IPA and it deserves awards. Hats off to independence brewing, the quality of their brews are astonishing!

look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured from bottle to glass. Minimal head. Minimal warmth in it's orange body, with a pale hue where the light hits it. Quickly dissolving head, leaving heavy lace on the glass and floating a few colonies.

S - Probably the most inviting aspect of this beer. Heavy florals, mildly toasty. Very welcoming.

T - A very well-constructed IPA for the hops used. Never overbearing, decently balanced.

MF - Median weight that covers the taste buds succinctly. Minimal carbonation.

O - One of the more famous IPAs to come out of the Austin Area ( a surprisingly low score on BA) Stash is a great go-to beer at the bar, and it pairs very well with Seafood, clearing the palate quickly. This isn't my first Stash, it won't be my last.

Received with a load of Texas beers from Tofuspeedstar, many thanks!

A - super hazy yellow and dark yellow's, haze makes it look thicker and more of a light brown, finger worth of white head that recedes slowly

S - real nice smell, floral fruity and light with some stickier caramel notes on the end

T - a nice clear piney fruit burst up front with some caramel malt balanced throughout , some hop bitterness that lingers on the end

O - Really a tasty beer, well balanced, lots of good hop flavor with an adequate malt presence to make it a bit creamier and approachable, a nice take on the style, and would have no qualms about drinking one again
