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.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

Pours a light golden yellow with smallish, but lasting head. Lots of piney hops in the aroma, with some citrus and grassiness. Flavor is strongly marked by bitter, pine hops, with a lot of grassiness and some citrus notes. This is the kind of IPA I like: nice and bitter and not too sweet. Very nice.

This pours a bright 14K gold with a 1 finger head of foam that lasts and lasts. The smell is loaded with grassy hops, some pine and citrus, with just a hint of some kind of sweetness from the malt. The taste is a bit more balanced; grass is big and bold, milder citrus and pine, underlining malt throughout gives it a somewhat sweet and earthy note. Itís pleasing to my palate. Nice smooth mouthfeel and overall, a very easy drinking, solid IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed coppery gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left very light lace. Pleasant floral aroma with fruity notes of mango and pineapple. Very appropriate for a Hawaiian-based beer. The flavor is more straightforward malt with mild hops bitterness that is more pith than fruit. Medium bodied.

Really surprised by this one! Had a pretty good flavor upfront but a lil watery.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 15:26-3-APR2514. I donít know if that is an expiration date or a bottling date. It pours a golden light amber color with a fluffy, overzealous head. Aroma notes include toasted grain, a touch of caramel, grapefruit, pine, and resin. Medium mouthfeel with carbonation bubbles that tear it apart on my tongue. Mildly sweet and grainy taste with a nice dose of pine finishing dryly at the end.

On tap Many average reviews here but I thought this was a good one. Great upfront hoppy aroma with some floral, citrus notes very strong. Taste was mild with a medium to strong bitter.

Bottle. Copper color with a very nice hop citrus aroma. This beer is a lot of hops all around on the flavor, with a little bread. A touch of grapefruit as well. Pretty good beer overall. Finishes really dry. Iíd drink it again.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Sampled both on draft and bottled, well this is another solid offering by Kona brewing, although not the greatest tropical IPA I’ve sampled. Aroma was pleasant, sweet, mildly hoppy, fresh. Appearance was exceptionally golden, generous white head, very pale for the style but appealing. Taste was an enjoyable spectrum of tropical hoppy flavors, some grassy hoppy contrast and sweet pale malty balance. However, flavor intensity was just a bit weak. Reminded me very much of Sweetwater IPA, similar flavor profile but not as strong and flavorful. Still, I will consider this a reliable option, Kona seems to consistently find a good balance in making their brews both flavorful and sessionable. Recommended overall.

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours almost clear amber copper with a fizzy, bubbly off white head. Tastes like sweet orange hops, musky grains, dry feel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky resin, hop cones, sweet orange.
