A full-bodied, American-Style I.P.A. that is bronze in color, Castaway IPA is "dry hopped" (aged with liberal amounts of whole hop flowers after fermentation) for assertive hop flavor and aroma. The bitterness is balanced by the malty body of the beer.

mikkos (300) - FINLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle at Oak Barrel Hki airport. Yellowish orange beer with no significant head. Aroma is mostly malts, caramel, some piney and peachy hops. Maybe this is a bit old sample? Taste is resinous, some peaches and tropical fruits, same maltiness dominates, but still ok. Finishes quite smooth and bitter. Mouthfeel was medium+ and co2 on the higher side. Quite ok, I'm feeling my sample wasn't the freshest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hershiser2 (1446) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle. $1.75 Wine Warehouse. Pours golden, slightly hazy, tiny head. Smells of hops, a bit of grass, almost lagery. Taste is strong hops, not overly flavorful, and finishes quite bitter. OK.

beer-yum (875) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 22, 2015
Citrus pine aroma in a golden amber pour. Light hop forward balance with fruity body and sustained bitter finish. The best of the regular Kona brews in my book.

A solid offering from Kona, which I have not re-visited in a long while. Nicely balanced and inoffensive IPA; it reaches that medium sweet and bitter medium. Nice aroma. Nice brew. Serving Size: Multi-12oz bottled experience.

weordie (365) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Pours golden with a nice foamy head. Aroma is lovely citrus fruits, a little cheese on the end of the nose too. Sweet, malty and citrus flavours burst through with just a hint of bitterness.

A little dry and bitter for my liking. Not terrible but the balance is almost but not quite right. Still, I’ll drink it and happily open another!

omhper (21407) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2015
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Lightly hazy golden, mid sized head. Mango and pineapple up front. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Resinous with plenty of mango. Long bitter finish. Solid IPA.

Garbageman (479) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2015
From tap. Pours a hazy orange with decent white head. Aroma was great with tropical fruits and a little bread. Taste was clean with lots of tropical fruit and balanced lite malt. Easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sickboy84 (9) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2015 does not count
Schiuma bianca, fine e mediamente persistente. Colore giallo paglierino con corpo non del tutto limpido e trasparente. Nell’aroma prevale un bel profumo di frutta tropicale e a pasta gialla (al mio naso spicca l’albicocca) ed, in seconda battua, emerge un sentore erbaceo; il malto si fa notare per un buon odore di miele. Al palato corpo è medio, carbonatazione assente, si rivela estremamente equilibrata (l’amaro c’è ma risulta piacevole e non stressante per le papille) ed armonica.

stantheman (809) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
Six pack bottles from BC Liquor store in north Burnaby. Nice orange bronze color with generous beige head and faintly citrus nose. Crisp citrus piney hop notes balanced by robust satisfying malts. Yes! 3.7.
