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.

65 IBU

I used to live in Kona, 25 years of drinking & brewing IPA and this was my all time favorite, until last year it was knocked into 2nd place by Sweetwater's IPA (Atlanta, GA).

Smells great, exceptional hopping and a stellar taste. If you are ever in Kona, get a pitcher of this and the brewery also makes some of the best food on the island (under $100 a person - LOL)

Serving type: on-tap
