Independence Stash IPA has a fairly thin, white head, a semi-clear, orange-gold appearance, powdery sediment suspended throughout, tight bubble streams, and good lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sharp and strong hop resin, with a background of pine, citrus, and white bread. Taste is hop resin forward, with sweet white bread, some grapefruit (but, not too much), and sweet, white bread. The hop bitterness sets in, as one drinks this down, and the alcohol is not present in aroma, nor taste. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and prickly, and Stash IPA finishes mostly dry and relatively easy drinking.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (no date) into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Thanks to my Secret Santa miikezombie for the hookup.

A: Pours hazy, cloudy, golden in color with amber hues. Relatively aggressive pour leads to a full two-finger fluffy slightly off-white head that disappears over the course of 5 minutes to leave a full sticky coating on the glass. Similar lacing leads all the way to the bottom.

S: Big time aroma on this one...almost unexpectedly so. Full citrus nose with big time piney resin meets subtle yet very present malt backbone. Hops reach right up and yank out your nose hairs.

T: Pine and grapefruit from the nose do a flip flop here as the pine takes center stage leaving grapefruit to wave its hands in the background. Very nicely done flavors here...lots and lots of hops and a nice little slide into home from the malt at the very end. Excellent.

M: A touch thin on the feel, the hop oils don't really coat the mouth too much but there is a nice finish. Ample carbonation.

O: Extremely well done IPA. This one came out of left field for me. Totally unexpected, really really nice. Overall I enjoyed the first immensely and will be said when I finish my second and last one.
