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."

12 oz bottle - pale yellow with a nice white head. Floral hops aroma. Tons of hop flavor. Enough malt to back it up, but a little more would be nice. Good beer.

Scrapersnbeer (1431) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2012
100 IBU? Had to try a bottle, and unfortunately amongst a drawn out bar crawl featuring mainly Lone Stars. Resiny, stanky pine hop aroma, which covers some stale, beaten down malt. Very bitter, also starchy sweet and crunchy. Heavy carpet bomber of the palate. Pretty good, but mad hops doesnít always make an IPA.

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Draught at Opal Divineís Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a cloudy gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of hops, quite catty, piney & resiny as well, backed by caramel malt. Flavour is all hops, piney, catty, resiny -- I love it, itís all about the hops. Big, long bitter finish. Medium bodied. A great start to my Austin trip and a great IPA.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Tropical and citrus hop aroma. Tastes a bit sweet, but if this is 8% then thatís totally understandable. This beer has come a long way.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012
This is one excellent IPA and itís from Texas. The mix of hops give it a crazy mix of flavors and aromas and since itís local, the hops flavor is fresh which gives it extra goodness.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. This brew pours a clear dark golden color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with a grassy hops character and flavors of earthy malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.
