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.

The flavor is really floral with undertones of citrus. It also has skunky undertones as well. The appearance is pale gold. The liquid is clear with a white thin head. The taste is medium bitter. This beer is medium bodied, with a oily texture and soft carbonation. The finish is bitter. Overall I was pleasantly surprised, Kona did a great job with this brew!

Copenhagen 4/6 2015. 12 fl oz bottle (35 cl) from Rema 1000. Colorful label with catamaran struggling through the waves. Pours clear yellow with white head. Settles slowly to thin layer. Aroma is sweet fruit, perfumed citrus sourness. Lemonadelike. Taste is quite bitter with the fruity lemonadelike sweetness in the background. Long bitter perfumed bitterness in aftertaste. Dry finish. Nice drink for Hawaiians challenging the waves.
