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 (31473) - 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.

oh6gdx (23691) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottled. Goldeny orange colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild bready and caramelly notes as well as some herbs and mild spicy elements. Flavour is fruity and floral with some sweet malts coming in as well. A rather balanced brew, which makes it a good session beer, though a bit high on the abv.

Travlr (17713) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Draught. Golden copper color, thin white head, scant lacing. Aroma of straw and grass. Taste is bitter throughout, decent hops. Slightly on the bland side, but tasty enough on a hot day.

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.

harrisoni (15794) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Gold clear lasting thin white head. Fresh grapefruit hop aroma. Plenty of grapefruit in the mouth. Fresh tasty some tropical fruits too. Really reminded me of a Kernel IPA. Malts are there and fine and keep the hops in check, but don’t do much else. Some mild bitterness on the finish. Lovely fresh hoppy IPA. Love the grapefruity tropical fruit flavours. Just like biting into fresh fruit. Lovely.
