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.

Hazy sunkissed gold with a thin foamy white cap. Nose is dank and marijuana-ish with some bright orange rind notes. Basic IPA flavor with some earthy pine hops and just a little orange/grapefruity notes, a little citrus rind and dankness, mostly bitter with a slightly metallic off-caramalt finish.

"fairly solid effoert...aromatic as expected, but can’t stand up to their best brews. overall, i’d recommend for hop lovers, otherwise the darks are better."

330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a quite clear golden yellow color forming a medium bubbled white head. Good retention and lots of lingering lacings left in the glass S: Quite piny and flowery. Notes of pale malts and citrus fruits, mainly grapefruit T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of sweet pale malts, grapefruit, pine. In overall, a dry taste followed by a moderate but pleasant hops bitterness M: Light body. Medium carbonation and a malty, citrus and piny aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Good IPA [ BA Review @ 6/27/2014 ]

maekchu (2200) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Big stinky nose, pine, weeds, and more than a hint of manure. Medium blonde/straw color. Fruity initial, with citrus rind, resiny hopping, some citrus juiciness, and tropical fruit. Medium body. Harsh on the hopping, but I keep on sipping it. Good stuff. A step up from the level of most Kona beers.

Listigovers (315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Lots of hop resin in the aroma, pours slightly cloudy yellow \gold. Sparkling mouth feel, dry medium length aftertaste, nice balance and very easy to drink. Not very heavy body. Good IPA!

nearbeer (3777) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Couple of pints on tap. Clear and shiny orange-amber with a film of cream. Aroma of citrus, caramel and resiny green herb. Taste is the same mix. Light-medium body is watery and pretty sessionable.

ajtrupp (273) - Keenesburg, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2014
The dry hopping helps a lot with this beer. It has a nice, sticky quality. But there's something unsettling about it. The back end is real watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Highly refreshing citrus hop aroma does not deliver on the taste. Somewhat watery, flat and one-dimensional.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Light amber, passionfruit, mango hop nose. Med-high bitterness, fruity hop, understated, biscuity malts. Good, refreshing, lighter IPA.
