BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Baxter Brewing Co.
Maine, United States
baxterbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Hoppy and malty, with a slight syrupy aftertaste. Definitely tastes more like a ESB than an IPA. Probably wouldn't drink it again.

almost amber ipa w/o haze
excellent head retention
slight piney hop nose
Piney bitterness almost English
caramel and carapil malt finish slightly sweet
decent IPA but it mask 6.9% well
more ESB than IPA despite ABV
not that that's a bad thing
Decent IPA

On tap at Side Street Cafe in Bar Harbor, ME.

This one pours a disappointingly dark amber color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells extremely malty for an IPA, with a very up front maltiness that just feels out of place. The only hop aroma I can detect is just piney hops.

This is definitely old-fashioned, which I can appreciate. It's just not that well done for being an old-fashioned IPA. It's just way too malty, with very little hop character beyond astringency. Even though this is likely a newer keg, it just tastes old from the outset.

This is medium bodied, with an astringency on the finish that makes it not all that drinkable.

This is really nothing to write home about, unfortunately.

16oz can poured into a plastic hotel room cup
A: Burnt orange with a 1/2-finger head
S: Orange/orange peel, malt, mango
T: Matches the nose. Malt-forward but healthy citrus & tropical fruit towards the finish
M: Medium-bodied
O: Solid IPA. Again malt-forward but balanced enough that's not a detractor

This IPA has more of a darker character than many.. almost has some amber character and flavor. In fact that's almost exactly what it is: some kind of hybrid between an amber and a standard IPA. Great-tasting all-around good-drinking beer.

Cans from sampler pack. Pretty bitter, not too fruity. See that it's fairly malty with amber color.

Nice malt forward, sweet citrus IPA. Good deep orange color, frothy head, crisp finish. Nothing outstanding, but solid.
