4.32/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Very clear golden color with a touch of honey to it. Looks like flower power just a shade lighter. A finger of white head. Super sticky lacing. Very nice.

S: The nose is nice and pungent. Citrus pineapple. A little bit more resiny than flower power. Get it? Really nice.

T: Gotta love that honey malt. Really sets their IPAs apart.Super balanced. Nice sweetness. Finishes dry. Just a really nice IPA.

M: Perfect in every way. Dry. Well carbonated.

D: I would love for them to make this a regular offering. Super drinkable. Almost too drinkable.

this beer pours a golden color with a small white head that recedes quickly leaving a scant patch of lace on the surface, the aroma brings a nice bouquet of citrus and piney hops backed by a a bit of sweet malt. the taste brings that nice clean hop taste at the forefront really outshining the aroma, the malt is a bit lost in the bitterness of it all... but i do like bitter. the light mouthfeel and good co2 do make this a very refreshing beer. nothing over the top about this ipa but very tasty none the less, can't wait to catch them pouring at the show.

No way I was missing out on getting a growler of Hop Stash, Ithaca's tribute to the upcoming Phish concert. The best part? The Chief banged out some kick a$& hops for this bad boy. There is nothing like an IPA from this brewery... hands down....

A- hop stash pours a light gold colored body with an excellent head of white foam compiling near the top of my ithaca tulip. As the head slightly retreats, a fair amount of lacing remains of the side. Carbonation rips throughout the brew

S- a strong whiff of anticipated piney citrus emerges from the brew. Very fresh hop scent in the form of newly cut grass blends in with a slight caramel scent that closes out with some bitterness. I'd go on record saying it's smells like a refreshing ipa on a hot day

T- same refreshing citric taste is very crisp up front with a fine taste of light fruit and grassy flavors. There is a fine bitter finish that leaves a crisp finish

M- light and crisp but really slaps the palate with remaining bitter mouth

D- alright, here is the best part of hop stash... It's is RIDICULOUSLY drinkable and tasty! I will go on record with this... this is one of the most drinkable ipa's with respect to drinkability in warm weather! An ipa that has drink me written all over it! Another winner from Ithaca
