Vacation Beers

Day #383 Stash IPA / Independence Brewing Company, Austin, TX
Previously from this brewery: None / New brewery

We're in the midst of a mini-vacation, so I'm keeping this oh so short and oh so sweet.

Today's beer is the Stash IPA from Independence Brewing Company in Austin.  I'm drinking this directly out of the bottle, so no comments here on appearance or aroma.  I can, however, comment on the taste, and let me say the taste is very dry, with a ton of hops.  Plenty of pine and citrus (grapefruit, tangerine) on board, and it's bitter the whole way through.  If you like IPAs and happen to find this one near by, it's definitely worth a shot.
Shout out to my people at the Kimber Modern Hotel

Independence has been brewing in South Austin since 2004.  Allow me to share a bit of advice with them (and all breweries): Guys, open a tasting room on site.  People will come visit you.  Trust me on this, I'm a world renowned beer blogger.  Thanks.

Thing to Think About Today:
In the spirit of the Stash IPA, I'm going to have us all think about one of the legendary mustaches of all time - the one found on Burt Reynolds' face.  Yes, the beer name refers to weed, not facial hair, but this is a family blog here.  Therefore, I'll now completely ignore that last sentence about family values, and share with you a great Burt Reynolds moment: the movie Boogie Nights.  Star studded cast, with Mr. Reynolds playing the role of porn impresario Jack Horner.  Enjoy your afternoon, friends.  Enjoy.
