COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PorterPounder (5199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - Blairstone Rd. Sparkling medium golden with a soft off-white head that leaves just a bit of lacing. Aroma is delectable with some resiny cat urine notes, a touch of spruce. Flavor has some mango fruitiness, some solid citrus bitterness, a touch or two of caramel. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Impressed.

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
On tap. Deep golden with a thick lasting white head. Low aroma of green hops, coniferous. Pale malts with a vegetal coniferous hop presence that is not overpowering. Nice enough, but tame.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear amber with a small tan head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has medium caramel and biscuit malts paired with soft piney-resinous hops. The flavour is moderately bitter up front with resinous hops, grapefruit and tropical fruit. It becomes more bitter as it develops and closes with a long, lingering hoppy finish. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. It is fairly well balanced, though not the most aromatic. 2013-08-10

Tap at the brewery. Amber, golden cream. Pine, grass, citric hops well balanced with a medium light biscuitty malt base. Very drinkable IPA
