No coincidence, the aptly named Hop Stash, is an homage to one of Ithaca Beer’s favorite jam bands, Phish. Hop Stash will be a one-off India Pale Ale weighing in around 6.0% ABV. If your mouth is watering already, you’re about to become a drooling mess when we tell you Chief plans to pull the dankest hops from his "hophead stash" for this IPA.

Draft at Coles- Buffalo NY- Nice dank hop aroma- puckering and semi astringent at first- hop overwhelms- mostly dank, with some stone fruit- not much malt to back it up- tasted a bit thin honestly- drinkability not high- hops too much for malt to carry.

KyotoLefty (9388) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2011
Draught at the NY Wine and Culinary Center. Grapefruit and citrus nose: clean and fruity. Light malt, huge hop flavor, citrus and grapefruit zest, a bit of tropical fruits. Nice bitterness. Slightly oily, clean and light. Perfect balance--very drinkable.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2011
(draft @ Tap and Mallet - Rochester, NY) Hazy gold pour with a soapy white head. Bitter and citrucy aroma with some floral and pepper notes. Bitter hop and citrus flavor with a mild grassy aftertaste. Decent IPA but nothing special.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Drfat at Coles & Blue Monk, Buffalo NY. Orangish golden pour. Pine & fruity forward IPA. Solid bitterness, good flavor but may fall short of massive expectations layed upon it due to Flower Power. Nice summer sessionable IPA

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Growler at a Max tasting. Pours a clear gold with standard white head. Nose is sulfitic: notes of burnt rubber covering banana and orange juice. Flavor has some banana but is prominent of diacetyl and rubber. Bitter and phenolic finish. Just too sulfitic and harsh.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Growler. Pours clear orange with golden highlights and a fluffy 2-finger off-white head. It leaves some blebby lacing as it recedes. The aromas are pine, earthy and fruity funk, dough, and sweet malt. The flavor is earthy and bitter pine, dirt and bark, and a sweetish malt finish with some lingering bitterness. Low/medium carbonation and medium/full body, pretty drinkable. Tasty stuff. [732]

Growler courtesy of Max at his impromptu tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big juicy hops on the nose. Malty toast and earthy hop juice. Nice bitterness, toast and earth. Long quinine bitterness. Quite nice.
