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.

Castaway smells appropriately floral for a Hawaiian beer. It pours golden with notes of nectar, tropical fruit, and a fair amount of sweet malt. Castaway has an oily, sticky feel and tastes like earth (grass, flowers) and citrus. It’s hop-forward but the robust malt body restrains the bitterness. Very solid.

PanMarek (210) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Hoppy nose with pine at the front. Cloudy golden pour, quickly dissipating foam. Hoppy nose, bitter, citrusy notes. Medium body and fizz. Fruits come out in the taste, especially grapefruit. Moderately bitter. Coarse finish.

vinivini (1227) - BELARUS - JUL 30, 2016
Clear golden, moderate white dense frothy head. Average retention. Notable lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, honey, melon, blossom, a bit dusty. Vague for the style. Medium body. Oily to creamy mouthfeel. The flavour shows nectar sweetness partnering with nice smooth citric bitterness. The latter is not that fresh as the beer is quite old. Still it’s well made and convincing.

Hardly any aroma. Starts a soft malty sweetness and a lot of bitter. The bitter turns dry quick and is somewhat off putting. It's alright though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PlutonowyMan (447) - POLAND - JUL 29, 2016
Kolor jasnego bursztynu, z?oty, nieznacznie zm?tniony. Piana bia?o ?ó?ta, zbudowana ze ?redniej wielko?ci p?cherzyków, nie jest wysoka, ani trwa?a, redukuje si? do delikatnego ko?uszka i wi?kszej obreczy. Aromat delikatne owocowy z ?ywic? i karmelem. Smak: ponownie owoce, g?ównie pomara?cze i cytryny, w tle mango, ?ywica lekko przesuni?ta do ty?u a karmel calkowicie wycofany. Goryczka d?uga, wyra?na, grapefruitowa, nie zalega. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Uwagi: piwo dobre, cho? troch? brakuje mu cia?a.

Fluffy, clinging off-white head over well-carbonated, yellow-golden beer. Fresh citrussy hops dominating the nose. Further hay, mowed grass. Bit skunky, rather bitter and piney hops. Grapefruit peel. Not very well-bodied, well-carbonated. Bit oily-slick. Actually, quite nice IMO. What an unusual find - in a small town Albert Heijn supermarket...
