BEER INFO

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.

Pretty unremarkable IPA. On the less bitter spectrum of IPA's.

This is a decent IPA and living in Maine I'm kinda spoiled by the local selection here (try Lunch by Maine Beer Company). I picked this up because it advertised a malt backbone which I did not find. The look, the smell and feel are great. Just kinda done with IPAs right now. If I want something citrusy, I'll buy a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

A: slight haze; burnt orange in color; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thin, uneven cap; thick rings of long lasting lacing;

S: earthy, floral, herbal; some malt sweetness; a little tropical fruit in the background; as it warms, the tropical fruit becomes more noticeable;

T: earthy for moment, the predominantly herbal; moderate bitterness build from mid-palate;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: the hop combination isn't my favorite, but this is a well made IPA;

Local for me. A good, solid IPA with all the hops you actually need. Refreshing.
