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

Castaway... If Gilligan had this on the Island, he would have told the rest of the world to "piss-off" !!!

Nice Colour.. Amber-Orange with a small lacing head that settles quickly.
Smell of bitter pine, laced with juniper sweetness and a slight citrus sprite.
Taste is Nirvana laced with tart perfection...
Mouth feel is a tangy, bitter, sweet, tart, taste bud wake up call!!!

a. Pours a cloudy golden color with a two finger head. Head dissipates early leaving a thin layer of foam which has surprisingly good lacing. As time passes, you can see through the golden color of the beer as it becomes less cloudy.

s. Mostly grapefruit and pine with a hint of tropical fruit (passion fruit?).

t. Again, the classic IPA flavor of pine and grapefruit holds true. Some subtle tropical and citrus flavors.

O. Outstanding offering from Kona. Good summertime IPA. Will revisit.
