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.

3.6/5  rDev -6.3%

Poured from a 12 oz can into an oversized wineglass. "Bootleg 06/25/14" on bottom of can. Single purchased at Craft Beer Cellar (Waterbury, VT).

A: Clear as a bell orange-amber with 1-2 finger, off-white head with good retention and a healthy amount of craggy lacing. (4.25)

S: Orange pine soap is the best descriptor, some floral, a bit of light caramel and breadiness. (3.25)

T: The flavor makes a nice comeback with a solid light-to-medium caramel backing not really yielding but sharing with orange, herbal-honeysuckle, tobacco, and floral hops notes. Pine whacks the palate in the finish, with a big resin blast which is welcome after the malty beginning. Bitterness is medium-to-high, especially in the finish and aftertaste. (3.75)

M: Feel is sticky overall with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty dry despite all the maltiness in the flavor and aroma. (3.5)

O: I liked the whole better than the pieces on this IPA -- I like the strong bitter, resiny finish more than the rest of the beer, and it has some weaknesses, but it is worth a try.

Really solid classic single IPA

Great clear copper color, topped with a flat white head. Good retention, great lacing.

Fairly subtle aroma, centered on pine, citrus, wildflower honey, and caramel and pale malts.

Flavor follows. Pretty bitter, with citrus peel and pine, and a smooth malt profile.

Lively and slick mouthfeel with slight sting and dry finish.
