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.

JorgeLee (1764) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle at Trineesh’s wedding beach barbeque thing. More to my liking than the pale ale: only a smidgen stronger at 6%, a lighter but not really less tasty malt layer and a reasonable hoppy bitterness and flavour. This was more of a generic crafty hop flavour, perhaps vaguely citrus fruit, than a standout or unusual flavour (the website proclaims a blend of Galaxy/Citra/Simcoe/Millenium), but it was cleanly executed and actually a bit smashable.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Rating #2172 - Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with citrus overtones, grapefruit, lemony, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry piney hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

Bottled 0,33L. Clear and hazy orange color, good bubbly aspect with creamy head. Intense hop and cellar notes, good smell of resind and soft woody. Fresh and good alcoholic mouth, equilibrate bitterish palate with aged flower and barrel rumors.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- fast keine Schaumbildung - intensivste Citrusaromen wie kaum ein anderes IPA - im Geschmack dominiert dann die Hopfennote die Fruchtaromen doch etwas zu stark - dies setzt sich auch im Abgang so fort - ein gutes IPA welches allerdings in der Ausgewogenheit etwas zu wünschen übrig lässt Fazit: Leicht unausgewogenes IPA

Ipa en l’honneur du channel entre Oahu et Molokaï, deux des îles d’Hawaii, et surtout ceux qui l’affrontaient en voilier prao à un flotteur asymétrique .. Niveau abv de 6 %. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois avant date, malgré traversée d’océans divers et variés … Couleur doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanche crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de mangue, malt clair, pointe de cannelle, bois de santal. Superbe. 1ère bouche très souple à la magnifique entame malt/houblon, avec une amertume fruitée. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume complexe fruits/bois clair/tannins. 2ème au remarquable ensemble malt/houblon très souple. Arrière-bouche avec un superbe équilibre, et de la classe. 3ème aux très belle notes fruitées, avec une pointe d’herbes tendres. Arrière-bouche très élégante, fine, précise. Longueur aux très belles nuances d’amertume, avec des fleurs blanches en plus. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, fruitée, très belle ligne. Alcool parfait pour montrer toute la finesse de cette bière, et son élégance. Finale qui nous donne encore plus. CONCLUSION : très grande ipa, fleurie comme les îles, tout au moins de ce coin du Pacifique, et situées en Océanie géographique pour la petite histoire, même s’il s’agit d’un état américain ...

Nice beer. Citrushops and some maltiness in support. Refreshing summer beer.

Hazy golden brew with small fast fading head. Smell and taste is dominated by citrus hops. Good brew that now makes me wish I had gone ahead and got the whole six pack. Just picked up a single sampler bottle, but next trip to the store I will get that six pack.
