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.

Beer in a can, haven't tried that in quite a while.

A - Cloudy golden beer with minimal head and nice lacing.

S - Strong smell of Pacific NW Hops, maybe some Chinook?

T - One of my favorites is Arrogant Bastard, this is similar in hop flavor and aroma, but a true IPA malt backbone. The finish perfect for this style.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit thin.

Overall, highly recomended, if you are a hophead like me. Not for the faint at heart.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This is the one out of the "backpack" that I was most eager to try, and I was NOT disappointed. A really good IPA definitely somewhere in the top 5 of IPA's i've tried. Smell is very hoppy/piney, with a little fruit thrown in. Taste is similar, hitting you with good fresh pine hops upfront, finishing with some grapefruit or orangey flavors. The mouthfeel is great, with moderate carbonation that fits the brew and ends dry. Overall a really good IPA and my favorite brew from Baxter so far.
