COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name “Outcast” gives a nod to the origin of the Galaxy hops used. The hops came from Australia, which was originally populated by English “Outcasts” or outlaws.

Beaver (1290) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
16.9 oz bottle, bottled on 4/7/14. Pours clear golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is piney hops with a little fruit and some stinky tar.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with a little fruit and a big piney, grassy, tarry harsh bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA. Not my favorite flavor profile.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Draught at The Beer Junction, Seattle
Blond color with creamy head. The aroma is a bit cheesy and yeasty, with some hops. Malt flavor, but with a tiring character; strong bitterness, the hops are mostly resiny, some bitter oranges but the fruitiness overall is low.
A bit messy, mostly the aroma should be tuned.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at Belmont Station. Pours orange amber with a tiny off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with a nicely bitter finish.

ACHops (687) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2014
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours bright medium golden with thin lacy white head. Aroma is sweet light caramel malt with big earthy hops - sharply herbal and floral. Taste is clean, medium sweet caramel malt with very light body. Hops are crisp, punchy, and earthy, though not big in a traditional sense. Light floral hop notes on the finish. Not a typical DIPA, but a different hop blend that gives some interesting flavors. And, it’s Crux, quality overall is top notch.

MrFecesious (959) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
On tap at Henry's. Clear straw gold with nice white cap. Steady lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and pine. Taste is sweet and bitter. Chewy. Pretty balanced with dry finish.

jgb9348 (4734) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Rich, super hazy golden and copper coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright hybrid hops, some grapefruit, a bit of grassy and herbal notes and a good dose of yeast. Medium-bodied; Very assertive grassy and herbal notes throughout with a pleasant malt backbone, some yeast and a lot of hay and grass flavours and a subdued sweetness from honey. Aftertaste shows some nice complexity with the hops no doubt dominating, but with a rich malt flavour, some yeast and a good dry, oaky flavour that persists. Overall, a nice complex beer with a good yeast and dry spice kick and a lot of hybrid and high alpha acid hop flavous. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland, Oregon (Pearl) on 07-December-2013 for US$4.79 sampled at home in Washington on 06-March-2014.

Bottle from brewery. Best of the IPAs I’ve tasted from crux. Has the similar dominating fruit ester flavor, but doesn’t share a sweetish finish. Good beer.

From on tap @ lardos 2-23-14 with my hot wife. Cloudy dark yellow, head foamy white that reduces to suds. Nice hop citrus punch. Good lingering note then some bitters. 8.45 bd. Jd- 4.5 super harsh but flavorful

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle: Tangy IPA, somewhat sweet, great head and lacing.   Not overly bitter, soft mellow citrus peel and pith.   Smooth, sweeter than most, and perhaps less bitter.   Almost doesn’t feel like a Double IPA.   Seems too soft in both malts and hops.   Clean, decent, but a lighter example.
