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.

Golden color with 2 full fingers of white head. The aroma is what is lacking. Needs more hops in the dry hop. Smell is slightly grainy and grassy, with some light citrus. Taste is better. Light citrus continues on the pallate with some bitterness on the back end. I really wanted to try this because of the hop combination, but the exception is a little lacking.

Blonde, translucide. Mousse blanche persistante, dépôts. Au nez aromatique puissante d’houblonnage fruité, pin et légèrement agrumes-citrus. Maltage discret mais apportant de la rondeur. En bouche également très fortement portée sur l’aromatique de l’houblon, un peu plus herbal au goût. Amertume-agrumes en fin de bouche, relativement longue. Carbonatation moyenne. IPA très aromatique. Bonne balance à ce niveau, mais manque à mon goût un peu plus de maltage pour la rondeur.

kiwianer (3380) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 12, 2014
The head is medium, the body gold. It smells fruity, hoppy, pine, maracuja, refreshing. The taste is hoppy, aromatic, fruity, a bit bitter, ok body. Bit strange in the aftertaste. Overall nice beer from Hawaii!

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 9-10-2014 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a smooth white head, transparent yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grassy, hops, grapefruit, and light malt. The flavor is moderately bitter citrus, grassy hops, fruity, earthy, and light malt. This beer’s mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This is a hop head beer so if you enjoy drinking hoppy tasting beer, try this one. It is too hoppy, bitter tasting for my personal liking, but is worth trying.

Flaska på BottleRock LA. Ljusgul utan skum. För kall, ingen doft. Smakar lite tropisk frukt och humlebeska.

It's okay. Not the best IPA. I like this brewery though and most of the beers they put out.

floydslip (197) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bright orange beer with a thin foamy bright white head. Pleasant nose of hay, new mown grass, and sweet resin. Flavor is consistent with the aroma, although the resinous quality is a bit stronger with the grassy flavors in support. It’s actually not as bitter as most IPAs, but still true to the style. Good beer.

Orange amber, decent head and lacing. Some off putting metallic tastes up front. Rich flavor layer profile. Toasty, piny, resins. Need to revisit this one and update my review. Bottle stamped: 08/25/14 (Best buy or bottled on date?) Consumed on: 11/08/14 $9.99/multi sixer at Wegmans, Leesburg VA
