COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Outrage is an IPA (India Pale Ale) featuring the robust and assertive flavors of American hops balanced by a slightly sweet malt body and high alcohol content. We use only the highest quality English malts to create a bright copper color and smooth rich body for this ale. Maris Otter Pale Malt, Crystal Malt, and a small addition of Wheat Malt supply the backbone and alcohol sweetness that help balance out this beer. However hops are the real feature of Outrage. Simcoe,Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo and Citra hops are added throughout the brewing process to yield an assertive hop bitterness reminiscent of grapefruit, a fruity and sweet hop flavor, and a complex aroma with notes of citrus(orange, tangerine and grapefruit), spice, and earthiness. Dry hopping (adding hops directly to the tank during the fermentation process) helps to further accentuate the wonderful and unique aromas of the five American hop varieties. Look for huge flavor and aroma from Outrage Ale with a noticeable “kick” from the alcohol content.

Tap @ Pony w James. A clear amber pour with splotchy lacing at the top of the glass. A tad grainy and earthy but overall a good fresh spice hop. Not pruney or piney, not quite earthy, but somewhere in the middle. Though I will say the aroma leans toward the piney side.

Nice, juicy IPA hand delivered growler from my good friend,coldbrewky. Lasting thin white head, nice lace sits atop an clear copper hued body. Juicy citrus nose with some mild dankedness and fruits. Medium bodied with a laid back carbonation, lil resin, light chewyness. Nice hop too malt balance artfully balanced to the hoppy side,THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Lil earthy, grapefruit and leafyness and dry grainy, pale malts. Dry finish is fruity but slightly light on the bite, for me anyways . Kicker up a notch with the bittering hops, Hutch! Still a nice quaffer though. Thanks stevely! Fekkin newyawker!

Orange brown with small off-white head. Aroma citrus hops and malty grains. Medium body, no alcohol and pretty easy to drink. Flavor is hoppy but there is a lot of malt here although not really too sweet either. Good balance. Enjoyable.

UDBeernut (1853) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2012
on tap at my local spot, poured into a pint glass a: light carmel/amber color. nice sticky 1/2" head with good retention. Reduzes nicely into lacing. Lacing rings the glass with each gulp. s: grapefruit, bitter orange, caramel t: nice caramel malt backbone gives way to cutting citrus bitterness boasting with grapefruit, orange and slight pine. Excellent!!! m&d: medium bodied, drying mouth from the hops. Drinkable, but not really sessionable.

On tap. Pours orangey with some red and a small white head. Aromas of spicy citrus and some light doughy sweetness. The flavor is nicely bitter, with plenty of citrus; very nice. Great mouthfeel, very drinkable. This is a nice offering. [947]
