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.

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

At the brewery tasted the fresh IPA in a 3 oz taster glass. First of all the aroma, S, is amazing. Wow is it inspired, pine and grapefruit and fresh sweet hops. Yum. A is a warm golden, orange hue which is a bit cloudy. Two finger head is wonderfully interlaced. T is just fab. Best beer I've had out here on the East Coast in a long time. Rich malt tones, almost toasted with a finishing bitterness that is sharp but smooth. Late hop additional shine here. M is great with a little bit of sickness as expected from a high gravity beer. she finished very dry. Yum. Overall, this is a world class brew. Not to miss, period. oh yeah, and it comes in a can!

This is my go-to beer in Maine...I was stoked to find it in Massachusetts!

A: Pours an amber color with a 1-2 finger head, lacing is decent down the glass.

S: A face-full of hops; citrus, pine, and a little bit of malty goodness.

T: Citrus and pine are very forward, the taste lingers for a while after you swallow. A bitter/sour aftertaste occur a few seconds after swallowing, but that just indicates that you need to pour a little more down your throat.

M: Points off for the aftertaste....that's all.

O: Overall, an incredible IPA...one that I plan on consuming gallons of.
