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.

Medium bronze color with a finger-thick foamy head that leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Smell is grapefruity and floral. Taste is bitter melon, with light notes of tropical fruit and citrus and a lingering bitter finish. Feel is medium-thick and creamy, which I didn't expect with this style, but it works. Overall this is quite good and just that little bit different than others of the style.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a medium amber with several streams of carbonation rising from the bottom. Two finger froathy foam head that slowly diminished with just a hint of side cling/lacing. Aroma was a bit of floral sweet with a bit of acid citrus hiding in the backend. Taste was very bitter up front. Not a complex bitter, with not much else noticable. Felt reasonable in the mouth. A bit of coat, with a solid amount of tingle on the tongue from the carbonation/head. Overall not bad, but the flavor was a bit of a let down based on the aroma.

A: It is sinful to pour out of a can, but for the sake of this review I did it. It pours out an amber color with just the slightest haze. A bountiful 3 fingers of fluffy off white head. Great retention and sticky lacing.

S: Resiny pine, a solid malt backbone, and some citrus.

T: Very similar to the nose with a nice bitter hop bite and good balance.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Nothing mind blowing but just a very solid IPA. I tend to favor canned IPAs and this one panned out well.
