sound67 (595) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2015
Maker: Kona Brewing Company, Kailua Kona, Hawaii, United States *** Beer: Kona Castaway IPA (bottled, 330ml) *** Style: India Pale Ale *** ALC.VOL.: 6.0% *** "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." [brewery note] *** Colour: Yellow golden, slightly hazy. Small, frothy white head. *** Nose: Intense sweet mango, yeast. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. Medium carbonation. *** Taste: In contrast to the sweet aroma, the initial taste is dry and moderately bitter. Mango fruit is there, but it’s being overshadowed by pinewood, flowery hops and grass. Increasingly bitter towards the middle, with some resin, citrus. Moderately bitter, dry finish of pine and lemon. After taste is the same. *** Impressions: A surprisingly dry- and bitter-flavoured beer considering the super-fruity aroma. Mainstream APA, and a good one, perhaps a bit too lean.
