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.

In mug off tap. Overall quite good. Foam minimal — a few millimeters, but lasts. Taste also better than “average,”. I’d drink it again but not at every opportunity.

Kona I love it. Was there on the big island imbibing the fresh stuff Let's give this one a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Pours to a bronze colour with a bold white head. Taste is thick, syrupy and bold hops up front and a serious backbone. This is a keeper. Kona is a go to brewery.

A solid IPA for Hawaii, with fresh-tasting hops with some herbal and citrusy qualities, medium-light body, a light bready malt background, a little lemony snap, clean and refreshing.

Draft at Haleiwa Joe's. Clear amber appearance. Herbal, earthy and piney taste. Pretty straight forward west-coast IPA.
