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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint tumbler.

A- Golden bronze, clear. Nice pad of off white head, retaining at about a half inch.

S- Citrus, pineapple. Sweet bread malt background.

T- Caramel malty background, some pineapple. A little bready, and a bit of pine.

M- Smooth, slightly dry finish. Bittersweet.

O- I was impressed with this one. Fairly juicy, citrus and pineapple notes are nice.
