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.

Discovered this IPA at the Dutch Ale House in Saugerties, NY! Brewed by The Crossroads Brewing Company in Athens, NY, this IPA quickly became a favorite of mine. The beer pours a clear amber color with about a 1" foamy head. The first thing that reels you in and makes you want to taste this is the aroma of the beer. A beautiful citrus/floral hoppy aroma which really comes out in the taste of the beer as well. A really nice balance of hops and malt with a bitter finish that calls you back for more. Very drinkable and tasty beer!

Such a really solid IPA. One of my favorite, just a plus that is is brewed locally and I can get it on tap at almost any bar I go to. Full of hops, but also has a nice drinkability to it, I could drink it all night, and I have. Has a full citrusy burst, almost everything yo would expect from an IPA. West coasty style but most balanced. Highly recommend.

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.

Orange pour,.nice head, thins quickly, good lacing. Aroma of resinous pine, some citrus, even floral. Flavor.followed.with spicey notes and earthy malt base. Mouthfeel is full, strong bitterness, quite a pleasant surprise of an ipa. Well done. Reminded me of flower power for whatever reason.

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.
