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.

Poured from a fresh 12 oz. can into a 6oz. tasting glass.

A - Beautiful golden russet color. Lots of bubbles from carbonation. Thin head, decent lacing.

S - My least favorite part of the beer. Very malty smell for an IPA. Not surprising, given the description on the can. Just missing that awesome strong hop aroma.

T - Liked this part much better than the smell. The hops that were missing from the nose are definitely present in the taste. Nice use of bittering hops. Certainly has a strong malt backbone.

M - Very nice. Best part of the beer for me.

O - I liked this beer. The cans make it an appealing option for outdoor recreation. Would very much like to try this beer unfiltered.

A : pours a deep and beautiful orange color with lots of loose bubbled off white head. Dissipates slowly. Great color and clarity.

S: the second you pop the can you can smell the hops. Big whiffs of fruit zest, lemon, lime, pineapple, grass, pine sap and mossy earth aromas. The tiniest husky grain background. Really nice.

T : not quite in line with the flavor. Starts very thin, transitions to sweet and subtle caramel and mild toffee malt flavor. The hops aren't over powering like in the nose. Midway through there is some solid fruity hops. Flavor hops are bold, with lots of citrus juice, guava and pineapple. Finishes sweet yet dry. Only bitterness is on the tail end, with a hint of earth.

M : thinner than expected, especially for the abv. Smooth and easy drinking with a nice finish.

A very nice ipa. Lots of hop aromas and flavors, not overly bitter which invites multiples. I really enjoy this beer and will probably have a few more.
