Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Day three of Maine beer stash and drinking a beer in between moving boxes down the street to a new apartment. The can of beer was poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer and has left some lacing on the glass. Orange yellow color with a medium amount of carbonation and some haziness going on with the beer.

Smell: I got some hints of pine, grapefruit, and sweet malty aroma. Nothing too overpowering and well balanced between all the aromas.

Taste: The grapfruit comes out at you, but then that is followed up by some sweet malts and some pine towards the end. Well balanced. Not too bitter and not too sweet

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and easy drinking. Medium amount of carbonation and easy on the palate. A little chewy, but in a good way.

Overall: Another good IPA out of the can and local one too. Good to know that it is easy to get and find in Maine. Have had this before and would buy it again whether at a Sea Dogs game, Jimmmy the Greeks, or out of can.

Serving type: can

3.54/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear golden yellow in color. Forms a very large fluffy white head that fills the glass. Head slowly falls to a thick, stiff, rocky head. Lots of lacing.

S: Aroma is potent, but not overly exciting. There is fairly nondescript "bitterness" to the aroma. Sort of like a combination between the smell of carbonation and biscuit malt. Maybe some citrus rind.

T: Taste has that same quality. There is a fairly sturdy pale malt backbone along with a little caramel malts. Then there is that plain bitterness. Like grapefruit pith. Very little actual flavor.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Appreciable bitterness. Moderate carbonation.

O: A decent beer. Drinkable, but lacking any appreciable character.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Draught: This one pours a darker hazy orangish color. There was very little head on it. Nice aroma. Big whiff of pine hops. Some grapefruit and orange in the background. The taste is good. A nice hop bite. Mainly pine hops to the taste. There is a decent malt body behind it. Some earthiness. Nice

Serving type: on-tap

Baxter makes some of of the best beer out there, not sure what it is about is Maine (ie: Peak Organic.Shipyard,Gearys)..may be the water,,this IPA is even better on draft and is my first choice these days when i can find it...if Baxter does it its done right..if they make a style you like ,you will love theirs
