Pours orange with a small white fizzy head. Smells hoppy, hints of citrus and lots flowers. Taste is bitter with some sweet notes underneath. Medium-bodied with slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Independence Brewing Stash IPA finishes with a resiny feel and very mild bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Location: Draft at Ginger Man-Austin, 2/17/12
Aroma: The nose is mostly citrus hops, with some malts and honey notes as well
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a. White head and medium heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is medium plus bitter, with a decent malt backbone for some balance
Palate: Medium bodied, a creamy mouthfeel, the carbonation is average, and it finishes fairly dry
I thought that this was a pretty solid IPA. It is fairly on target for what I’m looking for from this style, and it drank pretty nicely. They did a good job with this one.

Not much in way of aroma pale malt, a little honey, not much hop. Golden amber pour thin head. Pale malt grain and light hop. Light honey. Detergent possibly. Not overly flavorful. Not bad.

The new version of this beer is way improved. Better balance and hop flavor. Good malt backbone. Good citrusy hop character.

Pint at the Old School restaurant in Austin, Tx. Hazy and light coppery. A smallish off white head leaves a layer of lacing. A citrusy nose has oranges and grain. The neginning of each sip starts with bitterness that would try to take over but it quickly calms. Citrus flavor is big with some grapefruit. Pine flavors balance nicely with the citrus and caramel is the third leg. I also taste grain. Served too cold but the flavor is more than ample enough to power through. Is this a double? Flavor and ABV both indicate that it is. Good stuff.
