IPA’s or India Pale Ales are brewed pretty much by every brewery out there today and are widely popular. This style has been popular for a long time and I think will continue to be just popular for a long time. This IPA comes from Kona Brewing Co. in Kona Hawaii, and is Castaway India Pale Ale, 6.0% ABV. Castaway pours a nice pale orange color with a bright whiter tow finger head that slowly fades in to decent lacing. The aroma is a bit floral and earthy with subtle hits of citrus fruits. There is a little bitterness upfront on the taste with some nicer citrus notes in the middle of the mouth and a bigger hoppy bitter bite on the end or back of the mouth. That hoppy bitter bite is a negative toward this beer. The mouth feel is medium to light with a bitter finish that fades a bit quickly. The after taste is much like the finish. Over all not the best IPA but it somewhat okay. So I give this a C-. The bitterness on the end is a bit to bitter so that hold it back as well as the little bitterness up front. I don’t think I would rush to have this again. Cheers! Please enjoy responsible!
