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.

Bottle courtesy of Kona Brewing. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a nice burst of tropical fruit, guava, and citrus with some light malt behind it. Flavor is similar with a burst of tropical fruit, guava, kumquats, and citrus in the flavor package as well. Finishes with some tropical fruit-- medium to light in body and a nice IPA overall.

Medium body and nice, long lasting fruity bitter aftertaste with some malty sweetness. A fine and tasty IPA with decent malt balance.

IPA dolciastra e fruttata con sentori di frutti esotici e un gusto discretamente rotondo non eccessivamente amaro. Buona e dissetante.
