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.

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.
