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.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #51 (April 2011):

Hazed amber color is blaming the hops, while the head gives the hops the credit. Semi-thick nose of rind and resin; hop nose of ruby red grapefruit and soft pine, with hints of alcohol and malt in the back. Smooth and creamy medium body. Malt foundation flaunts its stuff a bit with biscuity, nutty and bready flavors before the hops come close to completely cover the palate with a sound bitterness and slowly unfolding flavor of citric rind, tobacco, spear- mint and pine sap. Quick hit of ripe tropical fruit and faint warmth from the alcohol. Hops don’t want to let go and the malt tries to keep up in the semidry finish. East Coasters can hop ... ‘nough said.
