What the brewers say

“Stash IPA is defined by its blend of hops. Galaxy for strong citrus and passion fruit; Summit for dankness; Columbus for earthy, spicy notes; and Nugget for a distinct spicy bitterness. Stash IPA is a dank, resinous and enlightening hops trip.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lemon and orange notes dominate the aroma with a touch of lemongrass in the background. Some tropical fruit notes, and some toasted malt.”

Flavor: “Clean base malt with a touch of honey sweetness and complexity. Notes of lemon, pine, a bit of orange, some grassy notes. The citrus and lemongrass hops cut through the light sweetness and carry the moderate bitterness through to the finish.”

Overall: “"Nice combination of toasted malt and tropical hops that feels very delicate. Well balanced and complex on all fronts. Finishes a touch sweet, but otherwise a very nice IPA.”
