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.

Great Summer IPA! First off I love this brewery and I have tried, and do try every style in their line up whenever possible, since 2011. I really enjoyed this IPA.

The assertive flavors and taste went well, with my steak dinner and complemented the meal. The aroma (I couldn't stop take inhaling deeply, ah so good) from the glass was very refreshing and the taste wasn't overtly bitter. Tasted crisp and clean with lots of flavor.

I am definitely going to have a few more this summer! As a beginner into IPA's , Kona Brewery was a great place to start. Now, I will be more willing to try another IPA brand soon.
