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.

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]

LilBeerDoctor (3543) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2011
On tap at Mugs Ale House. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, lots of sweet fruits and grapefruit. Flavor of lots of malt, apple skins, bitter resiny hops in the finish. At first I wasn’t digging it, but it warmed up to me a bit. Good IPA, although it isn’t as hoppy as I generally prefer. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

Poured from a growler recently. No specific problems with it, it was a sharp citrusy IPA. We drank it head-to-head against Flower Power, though, and it just didn’t compare.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Location: Draft at Mugs Ale House, 7/30/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, with lots of citrus, pine, and grassy notes to it
Appearance: It pours a clearish amber-red color with a fairly small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is fairly hoppy as well, light malty sweetness, heavier hoppy presence
Palate: The body is medium (plus), average carbonation, slightly creamy, with a dryish finish
Overall Impression: It is always good to try another small brewery, which I assume this is, as I can’t recall trying anything from them previously. Anyway, this was a solid IPA for sure, a nice effort at the style, with a crisp and dry feel to it.

coldbrewky (1521) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 On Tap repeatedly at the Dutch. A nice big hoppy full bodied critter that begs you to consume it after the first sip. Body is firm and well supplied by malts. Hops start with a nice grapefruit nose and sharp tang at first taste that opens up the palate for repeated imperial pints.

A - Pours a rich clear copper-orange color with a finger of white head atop. The head fades slowly down to a spotty layer atop the beer leaving behind some nice lacing in the process. S - Aroma is full of lots of fresh citrus and pine hop aromas. There is also enough malt in the background to provide some balance. T - Starts off with some nice citrus hop flavor and some malty flavors in the background. Through the middle some bitterness as well as some piney hop flavor comes through. The finish is a mix of some nice hop flavor with some slight bitterness as well as some malt flavor that lingers nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp with very balanced mouthfeel. There is some nice light bitterness and sweet flavors but is also really clean. D - Very drinkable. Really nice fresh hop profile that has a nice amount of bitterness. The hop and malt profile is really well balanced.
