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.

tmoreau (2578) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a SA lager glass, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a fairly lasting, frothy, soft white layer of head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The aroma was an expressive presentation of citrus & tropical notes, with resinous pine that created a strong nose of dank pungency. Medium bodied, with adequate carbonation, the taste offered a pronounced, citrus & rind hop bitterness, with lingering astringency, tempering malt, just a hint of malt sweetness, and some creamy fullness to the mouthfeel. A decent, "aware I’ve been hopped" IPA.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle, 6%. Good fruity hop aroma, mango with a little paper. Cloudy golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off quite bitter. Turns more fruity afterwards, but not sweet. Ends on a clean and dry bitter note.

From notes (Mid september): 12 oz bottle pours straw orange with a thin white head. Aroma is of hops and faint citrus. Tastes of candy and grapefruit rind with a really bitter finish. Palate is normal and decently balanced.

Light golden straw color with fluffy white head. Tons of tropical fruit, pine, and some malt sweetness on nose. Taste starts sweet with some hints of grapefruit. Long finish with small carbonation. Starts sweet but bittering comes on with finish. Pretty nice, refreshing IPA.

shadey (1916) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a nice white head of sticky lace. Aroma is fairly subtle, but indicates some hop bitterness. The flavor is far more hop-forward, with resiny bitter hops that hold on well into the finish. Enjoyable.
