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.

Bright and citrusy in the nose with a hint of tropical notes.

Malt balances nicely while letting the hops floral citrus components stay in the spotlight.

Finishes somewhat wet and crisp with more of a general hop bitterness on the finish.
