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.

Malty hoppy aroma. More piney hops. Taste is full flavored, malty and finishes piney and bitter. Not a bad beer if you like the piney bitter hops. Has a lighter feel that would make it session able, but still full bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanIHave4Beers (3524) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours perfectly clear, a pale golden color with a medium to small head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has some melon and citrus forward hops as well as a little bit of toasty and caramel forward malt.

The flavor is hop forward and keeps the maltiness & subsequent sweetness decently well at bay. Nice flavors of melon and lime rind work well alongside a moderate bitterness and a low alcohol flavor.

enjoyable on all accounts.

Standard but delicious IPA. Notes of citrus and pine with a toffee sweetness to balance it out. Crisp and pretty bitter.

Case (293) - GERMANY - JAN 14, 2015
Pours orange with mid-sized white head. Amazing aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, oranges. Taste is much softer, a bit of citrus, a bit of bready malt, mild bitterness. Decent IPA, could use a bit fuller body.

Dacrza (584) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2015
DATE TASTED: January 10, 2015... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: playoff football--lose, Ravens!... APPEARANCE: mildly hazy orange amber body that holds steady effervescence; promising, pillowy, creamy white head that looks like sea foam; beautiful, stratifying lacing ... AROMA: light oats suggest the much-understated hops; tough to distinguish either the citrus or pine here... PALATE: rather creamy, soft and mild-mannered; plays slightly on the teeth, but also hides some cough syrup tendencies in it ...TASTE: hop are crunchy pine but easily sessionable; mango and pear are present too, but as IPAs go, apologetic in its exit--not substantial, though that may be the target of Kona, as they have a half-dozen IPAs in their portfolio, it seems... OVERALL: first, thanks to Dave for the New Year’s Day beer visit...points are scored for the Hawaiian island chain impressed upon the bottle, too; the beer is solid, not spectacular, and sessionable too...

jmohno (1193) - Iowa, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pretty clear pale medium gold. Aroma of light fruit floral and citrus. Not big but not bad for 3 mo old. /Hints of mineral/metallic, not too disruptive Taste is full good malt body quite quaffable, with carbonic and citric bite, crisp dry bitter finish with hints of fruit, kinda big on floral-this one. Quite a sting in the finish.Hits you in the top of mouh. Pretty impressed really. Refreshing sessionable type ipa.

Cybercat (3784) - Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours clear golden with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Hoppy aroma has a nice fruity undertone an a hint of malt. Flavor is quite hoppy, mainly woody, somewhat bitter, with a fruity and slightly floral undertone that balances the bitter. Texture is fairly firm and fairly tingly, leaving a nice hoppy finish. Get cast away!
