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.

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.

This is a very drinkable IPA. Great flavor, descent balance with the malts and hops. Good stuff.

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.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
I have never commented on a bottle before, besides Orval, but this really is thing of beauty and worthy of apraisal. The beer pours nicely in the glass as well. We are dealing with a quite aggresively hopped IPA that balances good, but not great with the malts. Refreshing, though.

beerguy00 (105) - Fountain Valley, California, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a nice clear light honey color with a 2 finger head. Aroma of citrus, and sweet tropical fruit. Flavor matches with addition of light maltyness and a bit of pine. Very refreshing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 10, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized light white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy. The crisp clean mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Mild apple, honey. Fruity tropical hops, dry pine, dry hoppy finish. hmm fruitiness is wasted by the sharp dry finish, quite a disappointment.
