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.

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 12 FL. OZ. bottle. Unclear pale orange yellow, thinner off-white foam fades and spots. Mellow floral tropical fruity aroma. Lightly sweet tropical fruity taste, low bitterness, slightly floral, mild biscuity pale malts, hint of caramel, grapefruity finish. Softer carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Clean, lean and easy to quaff. Nice. MLF (More Lagerboy friendly)

Easy drinking. Seems a nice 'standard' America ipa not too hoppy but flavorful. Enjoyed.

12 oz bottle. At the Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland. Cloudy golden colour with a small foamy white head. Tropical fruity aroma... The flavour is fruity hops, moderate bitterness and malt. Nice and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thin tan white head under a dark orange cloudy pour. Moderately bitter, nice hop with a little bit of sweet behind. Good little IPA!

dwyerpg (4637) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2014
This is a decent beer. The initial sip actually gave me the feel of British pale hops; fairly malty. As it goes along it gets a better flavor. While not a so-called session ipa, a style that doesn’t need to be, this ipa is actually quite sessionable. A mellow finish for an ipa.

tiarasummer (11) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Murky, orange, with off-white head. Excellent lace. Head is a little diminishing. Very nice flavor. They need to bottle this. Creamy. Not fabulous and a little unbalanced toward the hops, but good. I’d drink this all the time if I lived on the Islands near one of the Kona brewpubs. Very good overall.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin head and blah aromas that have a bit of a fruity edge to them with some grain dust in there too. Flavor is in the middle. Not too malty, not quite hoppy enough... just a nice drinker without a ton of direction. Hops presence is juicy and slightly tropical.
