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.

CacheManyHose (175) - HONG KONG - JUL 19, 2014
Cloudy watery straw-gold with thin white head. Smells sweet (though not in a fruity or syrupy way), bit of corn, some hop. Taste is like a slightly slicker and slightly more hoppy run-of-the-mill pale ale with a very dry and very bitter finish. Not interesting enough for an IPA.

HKdIPA (228) - HONG KONG - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Hazy straw yellow pour. Aroma is slightly sweet with a bit of hops. Taste is hoppy bitterness, very dry bitter finish. Not bad but nothing really going on. Could be a beach-y bland IPA

TheHOFF43 (1750) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Tap at Old Chicago. Pretty bland I thought. SOme floral hops, slightly bitter, malty balance detracts from the hops.

hfmejias (713) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUL 17, 2014
12 Fl. Oz Bottle.Clear, Gold, with a nice white head that leaves a thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus/resin hops combined with some citrus fruit. Taste is bitter, hoppy but with a nice malt background. Is a drinkable easy to enjoy IPA that works nicely on warmer days, not to dry or sticky.

oOJUXEOo (277) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is dank and musty. Pour is clean and light head. Taste is great. Light and balanced. Hops are great and not overly bitter as the aroma may suggest. Great beer.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Poured from the bottle, this has a bright yellow body containing a plethora of mini-bubbles and is capped by a creamy white head. The aroma is a big whiff of lemon zest and grapefruit. (Nice.) The malt comes out in the flavor as a light grainy sweetness that’s soon put down by the citrus hop tastes and a sharp zest bitterness. It finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Good stuff.

BK7 (732) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Mild citrus and pine with light fruity notes. Smooth but not weak. Decent bitter finish. A tame IPA but very drinkable.

sloth (2476) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Medium sized head, white, lasting with a nice lace. Gold colored brew, Nose is decent, little dank and pissy.Body is medium with a soft carbonation, slight resiny notes. Crisp, danky hop flavors backed with tame pale malts that are clean and dry. Lightly fruity and juicy. Dry finish with a fairly decent bite. almost appears to be a SIPA but i guess with a 6% ABV,,,, it cant! Better than expected! Bottle from statelineliquors.
