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.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Big stinky nose, pine, weeds, and more than a hint of manure. Medium blonde/straw color. Fruity initial, with citrus rind, resiny hopping, some citrus juiciness, and tropical fruit. Medium body. Harsh on the hopping, but I keep on sipping it. Good stuff. A step up from the level of most Kona beers.

Listigovers (517) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Lots of hop resin in the aroma, pours slightly cloudy yellow \gold. Sparkling mouth feel, dry medium length aftertaste, nice balance and very easy to drink. Not very heavy body. Good IPA!

nearbeer (4176) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Couple of pints on tap. Clear and shiny orange-amber with a film of cream. Aroma of citrus, caramel and resiny green herb. Taste is the same mix. Light-medium body is watery and pretty sessionable.

ajtrupp (307) - Keenesburg, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2014
The dry hopping helps a lot with this beer. It has a nice, sticky quality. But there's something unsettling about it. The back end is real watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Highly refreshing citrus hop aroma does not deliver on the taste. Somewhat watery, flat and one-dimensional.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Light amber, passionfruit, mango hop nose. Med-high bitterness, fruity hop, understated, biscuity malts. Good, refreshing, lighter IPA.

tmoreau (2935) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a SA lager glass, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a fairly lasting, frothy, soft white layer of head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The aroma was an expressive presentation of citrus & tropical notes, with resinous pine that created a strong nose of dank pungency. Medium bodied, with adequate carbonation, the taste offered a pronounced, citrus & rind hop bitterness, with lingering astringency, tempering malt, just a hint of malt sweetness, and some creamy fullness to the mouthfeel. A decent, "aware I’ve been hopped" IPA.

MiP (14465) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle, 6%. Good fruity hop aroma, mango with a little paper. Cloudy golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off quite bitter. Turns more fruity afterwards, but not sweet. Ends on a clean and dry bitter note.

runaway (70) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2014
From notes (Mid september): 12 oz bottle pours straw orange with a thin white head. Aroma is of hops and faint citrus. Tastes of candy and grapefruit rind with a really bitter finish. Palate is normal and decently balanced.

Bamsen78 (4414) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of citrus, fruit and grass. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavor, with notes of citrus and touches of grass. Fruity and estery hints. Lingering, bitter and rough aftertaste. Decent.
