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.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
[At GABF 2004] A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but with some alcohol making it self present. The flavor is a lovely hoppy and grassy one, though with hints of alcohol.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Draught at Kona Brewing Company - KoKo Marina Pub
Beautiful amber color, with small creamy head. It has some aroma of good hops, a bit mild though. The flavor has some malt and caramel, just a touch of toffee; the mouthfeel, as usual, is on the dry side; strong bitterness, with some hop resins, but the hop is not shining; the final is bold and quite long.
The best beer available tonight, but nothing exciting, it’s almost a British IPA.
Dry hopped but a bit wasted.
