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."

mmmbeer (1262) - 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!

baraciisch (2062) - California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Golden orange in color... Aroma is citrus hops, slightly soapy... Flavor is soap mixed with citrus hops bitterness throughout... Not terribly malty, fairly dry considering itís not a west coast ipa... Not very good... Better than the amber, but still donít like this brewery

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle.
Pours a decent cheddar orange with an aroma of, I kid you not, peachy body odor. Mind you, in 9.9 out of 10 times this would be disgusting but this is that rare instance where itís easily overlooked but noted. Flavor is a nice, subtle mix of grapefruit, orange peel, and lemony pine. Average mouthfeel. With a bit of tweeking, this could be a very fine IPA.

AmEricanbrew (6030) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Clear amber color/ off white head. Spicy hop, dry malt aromas. light to medium bodied. Mild floral, spicy hop flavors with dusty pale malts, good.

degbert (1222) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Poured from bottle. Nose is floral and pleasantly so -- it comes off very English style. Pours a slightly hazy gold with some head. Flavor is intensely hoppy, but still much more an English-style IPA than an American grapefruit bomb. Carbonation is subtle, gentle, and appropriate for the style. Good beer.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2010
At Petrol Station. Pours cloudy peachy orange with small white head. A delicious concoction of hops without being overpowering. A great session ale and at 8% and the alcohol is almost entirely masked, so just two will bring big grins. Not the hoppiest IPA, but a great repeater.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2010
12oz bottle courtesy of stopbarking poured into a tulip. Pours a bright hazy golden orange with a big billowy white head that recedes to a thick cap and leaves good lacing. Very good looking IPA actually. The aroma is tame with some light lemony hops and some floral as well. There is light sweet malts as well but itís all very subdued. The taste is more of the same and actually a little less impressive. There is some faint citrus hops and light sugary malts. There is a light metallic bitterness in the finish and a fairly surprising alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation but the flavors seem watery. This is a fairly average IPA with the flavors coming across watered down. Itís not bad just not memorable in any way.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
The beer pours a clear dark yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of piney and grassy hops. The flavor is pine hops as well as some citrus and some grainy notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad IPA, but nothing really stands out that makes me want to try it again.
