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.

Very interesting herbal taste. Fresh, refreshing, coastal.

A: Apricot gold color, with a short off-white head that fades fast and leaves a modest lace.

S: The aroma is of super floral hops, caramelized malts and some citrus. Grassy sea coast.

T: Follows the smell with a pronounced herbal, coast grass lands feel. This is over a hearty malt character w sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Fresh, food beer, good balance. Refreshing.

F: Crisp and smooth, medium body & carbonation. clean finish with good feel.

O: An herbal, coastal, less hoppy style. Well done.

Resiny, light citrus aroma. Pine and grapefruit notes, with dank cannabis. Flavor is pine dominant, with grapefruit underpinnings that linger throughout, and a moderately bitter, dry finish. There's a hint of caramel malt sweetness, but hops dominate. Fairly balanced in hop flavoring and bittering, and a decent flavor range. Floral notes surface late.
