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.

Poured from the can into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Nice, clear amber color, with quite a bit of fluffy head.

The smell is pretty old school, some sweet malt augmented with some grass and floral notes.

The taste is buoyed by a solid maltbase that provides some sweetness. On top of that I get lots of floral hops, with a nice level of bitterness. Not extreme in any way, but solid.

Medium bodied, and nicely carbonated. Easy to drink.

Overall, a solid, if unspectacular IPA, somewhere in between the English and American styles. Easy to drink and well balanced.

Pours copper; light yellow head. Some lacing. Aroma is a somewhat muted pine/citrus/floral. Taste is citrus and floral with a complimenting malt backbone. Feel is medium and relatively soft; medium carbonation. Overall, a good IPA - reminds me of Harpoon IPA.

Baxter variety 12 pack at WFM. Try 12.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazed amber body with two fingers of head that lasts and laces well.
Smell: Citrus and pine hop aromas on biscuit malt base. Ample, almost medicine, cedar chest.
Taste: The citrus and pine dominate the malt, all hops here, cedar medicine cabinet again with some aspirin.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation, dry cleansing finish, a bit bready in the end.

Overall: pretty fine IPA at a great price.
