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.

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.

gairym (43) - Les Houches, FRANCE - AUG 14, 2015
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 (21449) - 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 (483) - 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 (11) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2015
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 (816) - 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.

Aroma is tropical fruit, hops and yeast. The flavor is hop resin, fruit/citrus and a slightly coarse/heat/bitter finish.

heemer77 (5187) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Tap. Nice citrus nose with some peanuts and dough. Bright nlbrass colored body and a white head. Taste of mild dough and oranges. Floral notes and nuts are present but muted. A decent middle of the road IPA.

as (172) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - AUG 7, 2015
0,355 l bottle in Hamburg. Pale golden color, long lasting foamy white head. Whole lots of floral and fruity (predominantly citrus orange and sweetish exotic fruit) aromas upfront that get topped off with a dry hoppy finish, but then, with a much lower intensity compared to other IPAs. Incredibly smooth, a perfect companion to pleasantly warm summer evenings. A mighty fine IPA.

Bottle from Glug, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a strong pineapple and pine flavour with citrus and a malty and rich pine finish. Superb!
