Castaway Chocolate Orange IPA brewed by Thomas Creek Brewery


Castaway Chocolate Orange IPA brewed by Thomas Creek Brewery - Greenville, South Carolina                

Fresh off its inaugural bottling line run, the newest entry into our beer lineup, Castaway Chocolate Orange IPA, is now ready to make the journey from store shelves straight to your taste buds. Crisp and citrusy, this India Pale Ale derives its atypical dark copper brown color from malted chocolate wheat. Heavily hopped, the bitterness blends with the dark chocolate flavors of the cocoa nibs added during fermentation. Those subtle chocolate notes rest behind a floral bouquet, enhanced by additions of bitter orange peel and dry hopping with Citra hops. Cheers!!

Beer Review From Beer Advocate
Poured a deep ruby red-orange (sort of a brown hue) with a half finger off-white (touch of tan) head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, milk chocolate, powdered chocolate, citrus hop, grass, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, powdered chocolate, spices, citrus hop, citrus, grass, earth hop, orange peel, and subtle earth. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. They really did a good job incorporating the orange and chocolate flavors and aromas on this one. The citrus touch on this one was really quite nice as it helped to balance out the sweetness that the chocolate added. Probably one of the better IPAs to come out of Thomas Creek and definitely one of the most experimental. Looking forward to trying new things in the future.
