COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

I tell you what, I almost didn’t purchase this because it was rated an 88 on here. Good thing I bought it! I knew from the moment I opened it and my nose was greeted by grapefruit and citrus I’d enjoy it. It’s a great IPA. Pours a honey gold color, a finger of white tiny bubbly head. As I drink it, it has great lacing. The nose is lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange, some sweet bready malts, and pine needle. It’s well balanced, not a whole lot of bitterness on the toungue, and the sweetness of the malts really comes through here. The description says full-bodied, but I’d say it’s medium bodied. High drinkability. A well crafted IPA. As far as a standard IPA goes, this makes my top 10 for sure.

Hardly any aroma. Starts a soft malty sweetness and a lot of bitter. The bitter turns dry quick and is somewhat off putting. It's alright though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kolor jasnego bursztynu, z?oty, nieznacznie zm?tniony. Piana bia?o ?ó?ta, zbudowana ze ?redniej wielko?ci p?cherzyków, nie jest wysoka, ani trwa?a, redukuje si? do delikatnego ko?uszka i wi?kszej obreczy. Aromat delikatne owocowy z ?ywic? i karmelem. Smak: ponownie owoce, g?ównie pomara?cze i cytryny, w tle mango, ?ywica lekko przesuni?ta do ty?u a karmel calkowicie wycofany. Goryczka d?uga, wyra?na, grapefruitowa, nie zalega. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Uwagi: piwo dobre, cho? troch? brakuje mu cia?a.

Fluffy, clinging off-white head over well-carbonated, yellow-golden beer. Fresh citrussy hops dominating the nose. Further hay, mowed grass. Bit skunky, rather bitter and piney hops. Grapefruit peel. Not very well-bodied, well-carbonated. Bit oily-slick. Actually, quite nice IMO. What an unusual find - in a small town Albert Heijn supermarket...

A very mild and good tasting beer. Refreshing bite but no after taste. A compliment to any food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid IPA, citrus aroma and upfront flavor. Castaway IPA is the stand out of the variety case I picked up @ Bell Beverage.
