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.

MadRobin (2293) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.  Kona Castaway IPA Not quite clear, golden yellow with a 2-finger near-white head and very good lacing.  Aroma of limey citrus, mango, caramel, light fruit and bread.  Taste of lime, honeydew melon, mango, citrus, caramel and bread.  Full/medium body and low/medium carbonization.  A decent, fruity IPA that's on the sweet side but has amble bitterness, too.  ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

High_in_NM (21) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle local Smith’s. Nice, lighter body, lighter abv IPA; a virtual Pilsner with balls. Not real complex or interesting in any way, but very good nonetheless. I could definitely imagine sipping this on a beach or under a cabana somewhere.
