American IPA |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/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.

4.53/5  rDev +17.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear tangerine, half finger of head, spotty lacing

Smell is a ton of bright orange, lemon, grapefruit, mango a little pineapple, maybe a little strawberry with a hint pine and caramel. Really bright and citrusy smelling.

Tastes is more of the same, grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, citrus peel, bittering pine, bitter grapefruit, finishes with a light and I mean light sweet malt bite

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side, medium carbonation light drying but still rather refreshing

Well now, this is exactly the kind of beer I would want if I was on a beach or something! Really refreshing, really, really easy drinking, almost a little to easy. Very tasty, give it a shot if fruity ipas are your thing.
