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. It’s 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."

On tap at Craft and Growler in Dallas, TX - medium gold/orange with a small head. Has a citrus hop aroma and a dry hop taste. Reminds me a lot of Ballast Point Sculpin or Big Eye. A real hop bomb.

Independence Stash IPA has a fairly thin, white head, a semi-clear, orange-gold appearance, powdery sediment suspended throughout, tight bubble streams, and good lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sharp and strong hop resin, with a background of pine, citrus, and white bread. Taste is hop resin forward, with sweet white bread, some grapefruit (but, not too much), and sweet, white bread. The hop bitterness sets in, as one drinks this down, and the alcohol is not present in aroma, nor taste. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and prickly, and Stash IPA finishes mostly dry and relatively easy drinking. RJT

Clear deep golden under a thin rocky white head. Dank earthy and resiny nose with a little Indian incense. Big bitter leafy flavor that’s dank and resiny and a little like weed. Pale malt body that’s just balancing enough but the earthy dank tones are pretty prevalent.
