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.

This is what I mean when I say IPA. Like the Lucille's, Boneyards, and others who balance the floral elements of the hop with a bit of bitterness, this beer is outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ipa en l’honneur du channel entre Oahu et Molokaï, deux des îles d’Hawaii, et surtout ceux qui l’affrontaient en voilier prao à un flotteur asymétrique .. Niveau abv de 6 %. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois avant date, malgré traversée d’océans divers et variés … Couleur doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanche crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de mangue, malt clair, pointe de cannelle, bois de santal. Superbe. 1ère bouche très souple à la magnifique entame malt/houblon, avec une amertume fruitée. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume complexe fruits/bois clair/tannins. 2ème au remarquable ensemble malt/houblon très souple. Arrière-bouche avec un superbe équilibre, et de la classe. 3ème aux très belle notes fruitées, avec une pointe d’herbes tendres. Arrière-bouche très élégante, fine, précise. Longueur aux très belles nuances d’amertume, avec des fleurs blanches en plus. Jambes fines, longues. Levure douce, fruitée, très belle ligne. Alcool parfait pour montrer toute la finesse de cette bière, et son élégance. Finale qui nous donne encore plus. CONCLUSION : très grande ipa, fleurie comme les îles, tout au moins de ce coin du Pacifique, et situées en Océanie géographique pour la petite histoire, même s’il s’agit d’un état américain ...

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.

On tap at the brewery-- This one rates way up there on my scale. This brew has everything I want in a beer--superb balance of flavors, hearty hop aroma and taste, nice pallate & appearance--very close to the perfect brew. Wish the brewery wasn't thousands of miles away...

Tried this with my pizza and really like so picked up a 6’er. Very clean IPA, citrus,slightly bitter but not like many IPA’s today. This is almost session able. Great summer or warm weather IPA.

Good flavor, not to strong and very balanced taste. Citrus notes and hopy tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
