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.

hauxe (371) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
Pours orange gold from the bottle with a moderate foamy white head that lingers. An appetizing, tropical aroma greets the nose, lots of citrus and pineapple. Taste is dry up front, smooth, alleviating into a mildly bitter and lightly tropical sweet finish with just a hint of warmth. Medium bodied, assertive, but very well balanced. Excellent.

McSherman (514) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2016
Das Kona Castaway aus Hawaii zeigt sich golden-orange, leicht trüb mit schöner weißen Schaumkrone. Der Duft ist herrlich fruchtig, wobei Mango und Ananas dominieren. Geschmacklich sorgt der fruchtige Hopfen ebenfalls für erfrischend fruchtige Aromen und eine nicht zu starke aber passende Bittere. Ein rundum gelungenes IPA, welches mit dem Mythos des bierlosen Hawaii endgültig aufräumt.

erickok (5268) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2016
Clean very American looking. Indeed a clean west coast style fermentation, mostly pale malts, fruity but fairly moderate hops for the style. Tasty juicy bitterness, moderate. It’s okay,i like body. (33cl bottle from Albert Heijn Leuven)

BeerRenter76 (725) - Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Aromas of sweet malts, some citrus notes with a smell that reminds me of a lager. Slightly hazy golden body with a spare thin cap that leaves some ok lace. Flavor reminds me of the Soriachi hop, lemony, drying, and light. An easy to drink IPA.

venom666 (835) - Elche, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2016
Pours a hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma has mango, pine and caramel, with some bready notes on the background. Taste follows the aroma, citrusy, caramely, piney, tropical and bready/biscuity, finishing with a moderate bitter aftertaste.

Tjeerd (187) - GERMANY - JUN 17, 2016
When poured out, it looks good: an average, rocky, white head that lasts. The beer itself is amber and lightly cloudy. The hops are average with hints of herbs and citrus. The body is, the carbonation is average and so is the aftertaste. All in all a fairly good beer, but nothing special.

Bottle. Golden color with good foam. Aroma: sweet nectar of tropical fruits, flowers and a light citrus breeze. Taste: sweetness of honey and malt, fruit jam, a hint of tangerine, pleasant hop bitterness.

Iznogud (2373) - CROATIA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle, 355 ml from Ammersin, Wien. Shared with JFK10000. Pours hazy golden, white head. Malty, citrus hoppy, fruity, sweetish with medium bitterness in the finish. OK, but expected more hops.

Hopverdju (604) - BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2016
Helder goudblond met rijkelijke witte wandklevende schuimkraag. Geur: hoppig, zoetig fruit, nectarine? Smaak: zoetig, af en toe komt wat bitterheid piepen, wat sinaasappel. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Te braaf voor een IPA.

luttonm (4518) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle in Seattle at a BBQ. No appearance notes. Solid tropical IPA, impressed me even. Complex, depth of citrus and mango. Clean body with enough weight to support the dry hopping but also innocent enough. Hop forward for a backyard beer but quite tasty.
