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.

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.

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