COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many breweries procure their hops right here in the Northwest. But this beer features the Galaxy hop from Australia, a country famously populated by England’s outcast convicts. Outcast IPA employs these hops aggressively from hop back to dry hopping stages. Yet the result is a balanced and bronzy ale, with medium hop bitterness complemented by moderate maltiness, showcasing aromas and flavors reminiscent of passion fruit.

mathieuc (2630) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Pours a pretty clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of perfumey fruits and grass. Taste is moderately sweet and fruity. Light sweet cereals. Pine. Body is medium, moderate carbonation and slightly grainy mouthfeel. A bit sticky. Fairly nice, would like to rerate a fresher sample!

mrjez (245) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2016
Tap at Imazato. Poured a bright almost clear orange-gold. Big fresh tropical aroma, passionfruit, papaya. The taste follows wonderfully, very nicely balanced, fruity with a good malt backing. Bitter but not overly assertive for a double. Really flavourful and refreshing. Great work.

zoucrew102 (1088) - - JAN 24, 2016
500ml bottle. Tropical fruit aroma with some citrus and pine resin hop notes. Pours pale golden colored with a thick off white head with excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with the sweetness of tropical fruit hops that has notes of pineapple and passion fruit with a bit of citrus. Finishes dry but very smooth with light pine resiny hop bitterness to go with citric acidity and flavor. Nice IPA.

ClarkVV (4841) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Draught, 1/13/16 at Tip Tap Room.
Highly clear (touch of chill haze) blonde body shows light carbonation and a small white head with moderately-low to low retention.
Nose is catty, with various stone fruits, biscuits and a touch of dry, lemony citrus notes. Not overly aromatic and though the cattiness isn’t offensive and actually reminds me of a pleasant funk quality, that’s certainly not acceptable here. No alcohol noted in the nose.
Lemons, pears, nectarine and biscuity malts all combine for a fairly mild character overall. Attenuation is good, with just a touch of honey and bread-like sweetness. There’s more catty flavors, however, and nothing is particularly bright or overly flavorful here. Very herbal, dank and subtle. Texture and carbonation are a bit watery/tired and things could use a little boost/tightening in that department. Anyways, at least it’s not resinous.
Light, for sure, which I have no problem with inherently, but if you’re going to go for a reserved/light rendition, why the hell is it 8%??! Perhaps a touch of alcohol warmth on the end. No real contest with New England IPAs....

Bottle. Clear gold with a soapy, off white head that lasts in places and laces. Aromas of melon, grapefruit, pine, dank, biscuit, light yeast and mango. Flavor is grapefruit, melon, pine resin, biscuit, light herbal notes. Medium bodied, smooth with a dry end.

DYCSoccer17 (3546) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 19, 2015
4 ounce sample on tap at Davis Beer Shoppe. 18 days old. Aroma has some light dank and a little cheese character. Some citrus, too. Transparent golden body with a small, yellowish head. Starts with a grapefruit hop flavor with some earthiness. Some husky, chewy maltiness in the middle. Finishes with a little dank hop flavor. Fairly bitter, but not overly balanced.

TheAlum (6650) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewery tap room (Bend, Or). Pours a nice gently hazed golden hue, a subtle amber glow, but a bit pale overall. Mellow bubbly cascades, frothy whitish head atop remains a thicker ringer, mellow film atop with ok lacing overall. Aromas are green and melon, a telltale Galaxy appeal that remains green, a bit fleshy melon dominant with bitter green leafy life, some florals, subtle tropical appeal. That cool melon Galaxy appeal is fresh, firm, and truly prevails. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, some distinct green melon, fleshy and bitter with earth, mellow body but a jab of ABV, some fruity nectar gives a touch of sweetness with a mellow creaminess. Backend is bitter, a touch fruity with some middling to firmer bitterness, biting into flowers comes back into focus as we finish up. This one never gets heavy, reamins bitter as a more fleshy melon and Galaxy driven nose leads as usual to a firmly bitter but a hop profile as we press on that doesn’t necessarily inspire or intrigue. Some bitterness, melon, some pineapple and pears. A unique oddity that ends up pretty enjoyable albeit not spectacular, subtle black pepper notes
