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."

Really good nutty smell and taste. True IPA taste, from what little I know. Not one to try first, due to the bitterness, but thatís a preference to me.

Nice citrus and hop aroma. Orange flavor up front but then bombarded with bitter hops. Long aftertaste.

Very hazy copper orange pour. Medium white head. Very dank aroma. Pine and citrus from hops as well. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Flavor follows the aroma. Dank hops come out first. Mid taste is more mild citrus hops, and finish is actually somewhat sweet given the amount of hops. ---Rated via iPhone

Great hop nose. Initial moderate aromatic hop followed by bitter, but quickly disappears. Initially no malt, minimal as warms up

Very dank on the nose.. just a dank pine needle smell. Dankess follows though to the taste slightly.... not horrible but not the best ipa ive had light to medium mouthfeel. Poured an orange amber color into a snifter with about a finger of white head. Id drink again but dont know if id buy a whole 4 pack again.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Orange and hazy, pretty good one finger head, and nice lacing. Smells a bit light for an IPA but not bad at all. Itís a bit malty, with some hops aromas and a bit of citrus. Tastes pretty malty for an IPA, but quite tasty. Thereís some hops and citrus, a touch of pine, and a light sweetness despite being slightly dry. Feel is light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated, and lingering light bitterness with a hint of sweetness. Iíd certainly be happy to consume it again, itís pretty good, if not outstanding.

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.
