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.

Growler brought back by a friend from the brewery. Pours a nice clear copper from the bottle, with quickly dissipating off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of hops, piney resin and citrus. Taste has a nice hop characteristic, but not too overpowering, leaving a solid bitter aftertaste. Pretty good IPA, and along with the Koko Brown, probably the best from Kona. My only disappointment comes from possible bad transport; it definitely wasn’t shipped cold and possibly lost some carbonation along the way, leading to the mediocre head.

Was decent but not a huge fan of IPA unless it’s good. Nothing special really. It’s got a bit of hop standard for an IPA, it does have a bit of bitter aftertaste.

Gold color, great lacing. hardly any head though. Creamy mouth, hoppy bitter finish. Aroma is incredibly weak for this though. Not bad but still missing something for me.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2012
Pours a bright amber with orange highlights and a finger of white, creamy head. The nose is sweet and fruity with a noticable grapefruit and a slight tropical fruit note. The middle has a sweet caramel and bready malt with a big citrus fruit and light floral notes on the finish accompanying a moderate hop bitterness. Slightly resinous mouthfeel with a mild alcohol presence. Overall, a pretty good IPA.

Tap @ their Honolulu Pub... One of my favorites from our visit. Poured clear amber/orange with a fluffy, white head. Very citrusy in hop flavor with also added pine. It dried out towards the end allowing some alcohol characters to come through too. Some malt sweetness as well as light fruits like passion fruit attempted to balance the bitterness but the hops came through allowing for a nice bitter finish.

Draft at Taphouse. Deep amber with a creamy head. Rich woodsy aroma. Drinks with quite the robust character, almost like an IIPA. Thick and strongly flavored. (#4186, 7/23/2011)
