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.

Poured from bottle into snifter, pleasant first hit but a bit bitter in the finish...could be better balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Murky, orange, with off-white head. Excellent lace. Head is a little diminishing. Very nice flavor. They need to bottle this. Creamy. Not fabulous and a little unbalanced toward the hops, but good. I’d drink this all the time if I lived on the Islands near one of the Kona brewpubs. Very good overall.

MrBunn (2478) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin head and blah aromas that have a bit of a fruity edge to them with some grain dust in there too. Flavor is in the middle. Not too malty, not quite hoppy enough... just a nice drinker without a ton of direction. Hops presence is juicy and slightly tropical.

Golden color with 2 full fingers of white head. The aroma is what is lacking. Needs more hops in the dry hop. Smell is slightly grainy and grassy, with some light citrus. Taste is better. Light citrus continues on the pallate with some bitterness on the back end. I really wanted to try this because of the hop combination, but the exception is a little lacking.

loco_gallego (117) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Blonde, translucide. Mousse blanche persistante, dépôts. Au nez aromatique puissante d’houblonnage fruité, pin et légèrement agrumes-citrus. Maltage discret mais apportant de la rondeur. En bouche également très fortement portée sur l’aromatique de l’houblon, un peu plus herbal au goût. Amertume-agrumes en fin de bouche, relativement longue. Carbonatation moyenne. IPA très aromatique. Bonne balance à ce niveau, mais manque à mon goût un peu plus de maltage pour la rondeur.

kiwianer (3361) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 12, 2014
The head is medium, the body gold. It smells fruity, hoppy, pine, maracuja, refreshing. The taste is hoppy, aromatic, fruity, a bit bitter, ok body. Bit strange in the aftertaste. Overall nice beer from Hawaii!

hotstuff (4229) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 9-10-2014 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a smooth white head, transparent yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grassy, hops, grapefruit, and light malt. The flavor is moderately bitter citrus, grassy hops, fruity, earthy, and light malt. This beer’s mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This is a hop head beer so if you enjoy drinking hoppy tasting beer, try this one. It is too hoppy, bitter tasting for my personal liking, but is worth trying.

Leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hopfig, grasig, fruchtig, tropische Früchte. Geschmack sehr fruchtig, grasig, hopfig, trocken, gut!

Flaska på BottleRock LA. Ljusgul utan skum. För kall, ingen doft. Smakar lite tropisk frukt och humlebeska.

It's okay. Not the best IPA. I like this brewery though and most of the beers they put out.
