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.

This beer is rock solid....the perfect hot summer IPA...smooth, fresh citrus, crisp fresh hoops, nice long finish, not heavy at all, the perfect lower alcohol beer. Simply perfect for a daily IPA beer!!!

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy copper-gold with a large lasting frothy white head. Aroma and flavour of citrus hops and tropical fruit, piney as well, and with some malt in the back. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Better then expected, a somewhat pleasant IPA, I’d gladly drink it again.

jhliesen (719) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle-pretty good and way better than I expected. Amber color with a decent, beige head. Looks good in the glass. Lots of malt in the taste with some sweet caramel, hops lie way back in the distance. Mild citrus finish, almost could be a British beer, no more jokes on my part. Total Wine.

Cavie (3785) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Tap at Old Chicago. Pours a clear light orange color with a tall foamy white head. Aroma is fat hops, resiny, sharp sappy notes and pollen. Light mouthfeel. Flavor is dry hops, lightly sweet, bitter hops through the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
12 oz bottle at Gateway Grill in Monroeville PA. Translucent copper brown with very little head. Intense pine and marigold in the nose. The flavour actually starts with a little malt, then you get the marigolds again. The flavour is only a slight shift from pine/mango, but it’s definitely marigolds. Weird. Different.

On draft at Otts. Nice notes of floral hop and a big grapefruit finish. Some caramel malts balance out the middle with a splash of citrus. Nice refreshing brew.
