Brewed by:
Baxter Brewing Co.
Maine, United States

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.

Baxter makes some of of the best beer out there, not sure what it is about is Maine (ie: Peak Organic.Shipyard,Gearys)..may be the water,,this IPA is even better on draft and is my first choice these days when i can find it...if Baxter does it its done right..if they make a style you like ,you will love theirs

At the brewery tasted the fresh IPA in a 3 oz taster glass. First of all the aroma, S, is amazing. Wow is it inspired, pine and grapefruit and fresh sweet hops. Yum. A is a warm golden, orange hue which is a bit cloudy. Two finger head is wonderfully interlaced. T is just fab. Best beer I've had out here on the East Coast in a long time. Rich malt tones, almost toasted with a finishing bitterness that is sharp but smooth. Late hop additional shine here. M is great with a little bit of sickness as expected from a high gravity beer. she finished very dry. Yum. Overall, this is a world class brew. Not to miss, period. oh yeah, and it comes in a can!
