Notes: Our brewers reached into their secret stash of Mosaic cyro hop resin to create a tropical dankness in this new age IPA. Take a hit of these bright sweet fruit notes in this easy drinkin bubbler. You won't want to pass this one!

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. LCBO purchase for around $3.75 CDN. Didn't realize this was a UZS brewery.

Appearance - Mostly clear, dark golden color with orange hues. Two fingers of long lasting fluffy white head. Pretty good retention time. Lots of spotty lacing.

Smell - Citrus with some pineapple and hints of pine. Maybe some other citrus and steady malt presence, indicative of a classic west coast IPA.

Taste - Light citrus flavors, some pineapple, a little caramel, rather on the sweet side with just a little pine kicking in at the end.

Mouthfeel - A little lacking in carbonation, otherwise medium bodied, a little sticky and semi-dry finish.

Overall - A good if not great IPA with a pretty big nose, but lacking a little in body.

Smells interesting. That’s about all. Color is fine, but the head has no staying power. The palate and mouthfeel is just hops. Somewhere below average for the genre, and not worth repeating.

Pale straw color. Fruity notes - guavasteen, pineapple, and pine. Overall smooth with a somewhat bitter after bite
Noticeably carbonated in a pleasant way. Overall refreshing and smooth with enough bitterness to keep things interesting.

I bought 2 cans at the LCBO in Ontario 473ml at 6.2%.
Hop Valley brewing Company brewed under license brewed by Creemore springs brewery in Canada only .
Bubble Stash IPA is actually new to Canada .
Very smooth and tasty IPA beer very well balanced with flavor.
Poured a 2 finger head into glass with a nice aroma .
Leaving a lace all the way to the end .
Overall Bubble Stash is very enjoyable to drink would definitely buy it again.
Cheers

12oz can into a Spiegelau glass.
L: Pours med-hazed orange gold w/a 2.5" creamy rocky off white head. Low carbonation, fair head retention, random skeletal lacing.
S: Subtle hops, earthy, light bread dough, black pepper, pineapple pith, rich caramelized malts as beer warms.
T: Caramel, orange, gently sharp citrus rind tang that smooths out, lightly rich caramel again at the finish, gentle fruits and a hint of resin. Malts are subtle & pale. A very linear taste overall.
F: Semi-juicy & wet, very soft & smooth med-bodied mouth feel w/a clean medium length finish. Very clean overall.
O: A well balanced soft & smooth American IPA w/no over the top sensations. The water is quite soft & lovely. It is simple, very easy drinking and is very good in it's style.

BBD 06/01/22.

Appearance: Pours a golden-orange body, a bit of haze to it and capped by a whi--oh, nevermind, it's already gone.

Smell: Grainy, a faint sweetish hint of blonde caramel. Tangerine, apricot with soapy florals, but this, too, is all rather mild.

Taste: A little grainy, a little sweet caramel topping, a nibble and bite of stale bread. Fruity citrus, stonefruit, even some berry accents from the Mosaic, but it's all pretty muted. Low bitterness. The flavors just blend together and steadily fade away.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Lifeless and stagnant.

Excellent floral and citrus nose. Bright grapefruit and pineapple on the tongue. Lightly bitter, finishes with a light peppery/bready bottom on exhale. This one falls somewhere between an IPA and a quality American pilsner in my mind- easy drinkability here. Your Coors Light-swigging buds might even find an acceptable adventure here.

12 oz can from a mix 12 pack.
Appearance. The clear golden colored body has a semi-durable white head that leaves fairly minimal lacing.
Aroma. Dank hops with hints of typical fruits including some over ripe fruit, but better than this sounds.
Flavor. Less dank than the aroma suggests a well as more malty.
Feel. Medium body with medium carbonation and a dry finish.

Best Buy Date: 08-11-21.

A - Hazy medium gold color with thick, frothy white lacing that sticks to the sides of the glass.

S - The nose is incredibly faded with stale tropical fruit on the nose.

T - Sweet malt base is present from start to finish with barely detectable tropical fruit over top with some light acidity and mild bitterness. There's a stale lingering light resin that builds and coats the mouth at the end of the sip.

M - Medium body with carbonated pricklies.

O - This was a gift and I'll revisit when I find fresher cans and change my score (to be fair to the brewer and the beer).

Bubble stash pours a lighter copper color with a huge long lasting head. Aroma is very early and sweet. Flavor is very earthy, but smooth, and a sweeter milder finish. Good body and feel. Overall, too earthy, but balanced with a sweeter finish.

Looks impressive. Short long lived head, lots of lace, persistent cap. Sugary, boozy, malti which is kinda unexpected. Hops take a backseat. Similar flavor profile. Sweet and malt, not so much happy. Drinks more like a kolsch. Big juicy mouthful.

Hop Valley Brewing Bubble Stash IPA bought 12 can for 15,99 at Costco

Look: A bit of hazy orange/golden colour. a white lacing around the glass

Smell: Citrus, lemon, orange, pine, herbal notes,

Taste: About the same as the smell with the pine to be more present. malt, white bread,

Feel: Medium body, light to medium carbonation, easy drinking the bitterness as an IPA is on the low end for a 45 IBU. watery feel, crisp finish

So overall would I recommend it? Sure very nice IPA overall

Would I buy it again ? No because Im not a big fan of IPA in general.

Hop Valley Brewing Co. "Bubble Stash"
12 fl. oz. can coded "BBD 09/01/21 C5050020145"
$2 @ ShopRite, Roxborough, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Well, it looks like I missed the best by date on this one as it's currently November 3rd. It's poured a hazy golden body beneath a full head of bright white foam. The aroma is berryish and orange-like over some sweetish malt. The flavor follows with more intensity. The orange and berry remain, but there's also mango, guava, and some earthiness as well. It borders on being pine-like but never gets there. A firm bitterness balances the sweetness of the malt, and it finishes dry with residual fruitiness lingering until all that's left is dull earthiness. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp but it becomes smooth and almost creamy once warmed in the mouth. The head has held up well, and it's left some very nice sheets of lacing across the glass. Nicely done.

I got a few cans of this beer from a mixed 12pck that I bought from my local Kroger store. It poured a nearly clear golden with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had bittering hop notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with subtle citrus sweet base and good bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.
