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.

nose: pomelo...like scratching the skin and inhaling. palate: think of a buttery, over-hopped pilsner and you have this. itís 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...

This is what a beer is to me. Dry hopped. Great looking and great tasting. Dry hops.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 6 %. It also has a freshness date and a short description of the beer. Appearance: The body is cloudy and has a light golden color. Itís head was small and settles quickly. It keeps just a wispy thin film with a ring of creamy bubbles at the edge of the glass. Smell: There is a nice hop character in the nose. It brings notes of citrusy grapefruit and tropical pineapple to the nose. Taste / Palate: The flavor is medium bodied with nice juicy hop flavor though out. It has very nice light bready malt sweetness backing up the citrusy and tropical fruity hop flavors. It finishes with just a quick flash of very mild hop bitterness. It feel light, but not thin and it is very drinkable. Notes: If youíre a hard core hop head this may not be for you but I love the balance and drinkability in this beer. This may also be a good IPA for craft beer newbies or people who like hop flavor with out heavy enamel stripping bitterness.

On tap at Lulus in lahaina. Aroma is hoppy, some citrus, some dank. Almost like warrior or magnum hops. Pours clear orange color with nice head and good lacing. Flavor is bitter for your usual ipa. Really good ipa. Palate is medium body with a long bitter finish.

This ones solid. I havenít had a ton of Kona beers but the ones I have had were very good so I saw this and had to try it. Very refreshing IPA. Not a hop bomb, but itís not trying to be. Itís nicely balanced but still has a great tropical floral aroma. Could drink these all night. I think I just might. Great beer!

12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that has thin copper hues and supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet pink grapefruit, a dash of lemon grass and the some spicy hops and then cantaloupe. Nice. The taste starts with a mix of citrus, mango and spicy hops and then it picks up spicy dank onions and a dash of lemon grass creating an interesting and tasty take on the style. This is pretty rich, full of hop flavor and balanced by just enough hop bitterness to give it depth. I like this.

Had this beer in a bottle. Light copper color, thin head. Light citrus aroma. Light taste was slightly sour aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure if it's because I'm sitting in Hawaii but I really enjoyed this IPA. A really crisp balance of hops and fruits. Really well-balanced. Nicely done. Hawaii; bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
