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.

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.

We're staying in a creepy cabin in the woods in maine for a couple days (it's only creepy because we are horror fans and tomorrow we are going to see Stephen Kings house). So before it got too dark to find our way back we stopped at a grocery store to get a few things. I got a sixer of this. Luckily, this turned out to be an excellent choice.

It is dark golden with smallish bubbles. The aroma is faint but clean and appetizing. The taste is a good balance of malty and hoppy with a slightly bitter finish.

Recommended.

12 Oz can undated. Nice copper/caramel color with a malty/citrusy nose. Fairly bold flavors of Grapefruit and other citrus, along with some malt in a well-balanced and refreshing manner. Hoppy bitterness remains on the finish. Purchased at Town Center.

Can to pint glass. Pours deep amber with plenty of head retention. Looks great. Some sweet malt in nose with some pine. Dry taste, heavy pine with some vanilla or licorice sweetness, malt complexity, very bitter, with somewhat of a burnt tobacco finish. Not my favorite flavorng for IPA. Slick, full mouthfeel. Overall an ok IPA.
