COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stash IPA is defined by the hops. 7 additions of 4 different varietals, Columbus, Galaxy, Nugget and Cascade create a hop explosion that finishes clean. A dank, resinous and enlightening hop trip. Itís got mad hops.
Head Brewer Michael Waters: "The Stash is a reincarnated beast. It makes sense to go to the source, and IPA for me is defined by the West Coast. Three pounds of hops per barrel, 100 IBU, and a large dose of Columbus hops so the aroma matches the name."

Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little bread, caramel, and fruit. Taste is floral, a little citrus, and a little caramel. Sticky aftertaste lingers a little long.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Milky amberish, sediment floats about, huge foamy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Pale hop nose, otherwise pixie stix like aroma.   Soft hoppiness up front, candish sweetness, soft backside.   Fairly smooth, not very bitter, sweeter than most.   This almost seems like a very sweet American Pale Ale.   I am getting some of that airy kool-aid or pixie stix type sweetness.   While not bad, it seems a little like an okay homebrew because of that artificial sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Soft hop finish, sweet, candyish in that powdery sugar sorta way.   Tiz okay, but seems a little artificial.   Thanks Bill!

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
A Sim rate (one of the epic "Pool Table Tastings" in Rome, thanks to Alex): Aroma of sweet, orangey, flowery hops. Flavour thatís sharp initially, with a citric hop that balances out into a real bitter finish. Pretty good beer... and from my home state - yeehaw!

Clear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to light light heavy hoppy, orange - citrus, hop oil - resin. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101219]

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2010
12oz bottle from jtortorice, thanks Josh! Pours a cloudy, somewhat particulate filled, golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a pretty nice lacing throughout. Aroma is a decent amount of bitter, almost sharp citrus pines. Grapefruits, lemons, and oranges mostly. Some medium sweet caramels that are a bit grainy with a hint of sugar. Flavor is similar, but a nice balancing caramel backing stands out more than the aroma. Still lots of bitter citrus rinds with a bit of a piney astringency to the hops. Some floral sweetness towards the back-end before this finishes malty smooth, but dries nicely thanks to a moderate bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and soft, moderate carbonation. Nice feeling beer. Overall, a solid IPA. Well hopped and fairly bitter, but nicely balanced and enjoyable. This was nice.

MeadMe (1332) - Riverview, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2010
A: Pours a nice amber with a solid off white head. Wonderful retention and some nice lace. S: Aromas of nice candy malts, bitter citrus, and a touch of pine. T: Fairly hop forward, bitter grapefruit and dank grassy notes. Nice underlying sweetness to round things out, much better than people are giving it credit for. M: Wonderful carbonation, smooth, with a nice hoppy bite.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle: Poured a a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light hoppy citrus notes with bitter notes and some good caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by good citrus notes that are well balanced by plain bitter hoppy notes with a solid malt backbone that is well balanced and not too sweet. Nothing earth shattering but well brewed for the style.

mmmbeer (1252) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2010
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent darkened copper color with a very slight brown undertone, low carbonation, Texas size one finger plus white pillowy head formed, laced through the drinking, and laced nicely. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and lemon. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt has just a touch of caramel to it- which is nice, hops come in the middle nicely, finish is acidic, somewhat lingering, and slightly drying. With what I like to call the beer arms race here in Austin alone (8 breweries and brewpubs, plus those in nearby towns, and counting!), I hope this brew puts them back on the map since itís very easy to get lost among the crowd here. Good job folks!
