Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Casey10 on 02-01-2011

Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning, give this beer its crisp, clean, hoppy finish. Deep amber-to-orangish in color, Stowaway pours with a nice, creamy head; a huge hop aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit notes; and a big, complex, and intense hop flavor from the 5 different hop varieties and double-dry-hopping procedure used in making this beer. The malt flavor up-front turns dry and crisp; Stowaway is full-bodied but with a dry finish and pleasant, long-lasting, hop aftertaste. This I.P.A. definitely leaves you wanting more.

A: The beer is somewhat hazy orange amber in color and has lots of small and large sized particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a quarter finger high beige colored head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and starts out with piney flavors from the hops along with notes of caramel malts and hints of grapefruit. There is a moderate amount of bitterness. The pine lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and surprisingly a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The pine in the finish lends some dryness to the mouthfeel.
O: Despite all of the piney hops, this beer has a pleasant smoothness in the mouthfeel that coats your mouth a little. It has rather bold hop flavors for an IPA, similar to what you would expect from a Double IPA.
