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 (29017) - 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 (14290) - 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.

Leighton (10405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury - picked up at Stateline. Pours clear, luscious gold with a frothy white head. The nose has pale bread up front, then some dynamic citrus elements, like tangerine, orange, faint melon and grapefruit. The flavor is medium sweet and well rounded, with minimal bitterness but nice, semi-full and rounded citrusy and tropical fruits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Refreshing finish, pretty clean, with more grapefruit and tangerine, mellow citrus rind bitterness, some passionfruit. Actually, the more I drink of this beer the more I like it. Very drinkable stuff.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.
