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.

From 09/18/14 notes. On tap at Stoddard's Pub in Boston, MA. 16oz. pour in a pint glass.

Pours an amber-dark golden color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident. Lots of pine hops, some floral hops, fruity malts, bready malts, and light caramel. Easy to drink, no bitterness. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall a solid IPA. Not a hop bomb but some nice pine to it and no bitterness at all, making it easy to drink. Worth checking out.
