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.

Tap at Old Chicago. Pretty bland I thought. SOme floral hops, slightly bitter, malty balance detracts from the hops.

shadey (1900) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a nice white head of sticky lace. Aroma is fairly subtle, but indicates some hop bitterness. The flavor is far more hop-forward, with resiny bitter hops that hold on well into the finish. Enjoyable.

Golden pour, nice creamy creamy head. Nose is hint alcohol and pine. Bitter. Middle is soft malt, another peak of alcohol. Finish is slightly warm pine. decent.

bkurtz (792) - PERU - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle - Pours a hazy golden with a creamy head. Aromas of grapefruit and peach. Aromas carry through in the taste with some bitterness, but flavors are muddled. Finish is a bit soapy.

This is a very drinkable IPA. Great flavor, descent balance with the malts and hops. Good stuff.

winto (30) - Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2014
nose: pomelo...like scratching the skin and inhaling. palate: think of a buttery, over-hopped pilsner and you have this. it’s quite delicious. clean, minerally, citrusy, with a distinct dry and bitter mexican sweet lime flavor...but without the sweetness.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
I have never commented on a bottle before, besides Orval, but this really is thing of beauty and worthy of apraisal. The beer pours nicely in the glass as well. We are dealing with a quite aggresively hopped IPA that balances good, but not great with the malts. Refreshing, though.

beerguy00 (107) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a nice clear light honey color with a 2 finger head. Aroma of citrus, and sweet tropical fruit. Flavor matches with addition of light maltyness and a bit of pine. Very refreshing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 10, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. The crisp clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
