BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

12oz. can served in a SA Perfect Pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy burnished copper with a loose, quarter inch, white head. Nose is quite malty with a hint of piney resin. Taste expresses caramel malt, a candied quality and an earthy/herbal/piney hops profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a crisp carbonation and just a hint of viscosity. Overall, not bad but a bit too malty for my sensibilities and the hops aren't really in my wheelhouse either.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Dogfish Head pint glass.

The color is a deep orange with a fingers of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.

The smell has a grassy aroma that is lined with earthy hops in the nose. There is a slight damp aroma here that is a bit fruity but flowery as well.

The taste is a bit spicy with some bitterness that starts slow with a tart fruit flavor. There is a dankness that comes out toward the back end. There is a tease if grapefruit with a lip smacking grassy flavor.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a smooth body that goes down easy. There is a nice bitter aftertaste that leaves a slight piney flavor takes its time settling down.
