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.

Baxter Stowaway IPA is a cloudy ale that straddles golden and amber, topped with a thin, off white foam that leaves attractive lacing on the glass. It has a solid, fresh pine aroma with notes of grapefruit peel and black pepper. It's pretty light bodied. It's smooth and maybe a bit watery. It has a chalky finish. Ample bitterness of pine resin lasts throughout the sip and past the swallow. It's peppery and dry. This seems like something you'd be able to get in a brewpub on the West Coast in the late '90s; a throwback of sorts. Quite solid.

Serving type: can
