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.

On tap @ Brouwer’s. Golden-orange pour with white foam. Kind of catty and some green melon on the nose. A bit toasty. A lot of apple as well...meh. Some bread, lemon, pine, and herbs. All over the place on this one. Flavor is a bit more "bitter caramel water" than I’d like. That said, it does have some nice citric qualities and a decent fruit character. Lightly herbal and woody on the finish. Fairly bitter. Not great, but okay, I guess.

BuckeyeBoy (3158) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 18, 2014
500ml bottle pours out a crisp golden topped with a sand head. Nose is pine citrus grass caramel and sweetness. Taste is as the nose with bread malts and a till grapefruit pithy bitterness on the end.

skoisirius (1819) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle. Really nicely done pineappley floral single almost double IPA done here by Crux. Digging the Galaxy hop concentration. Hint of bitterness throughout, never overpowering. Long lasting finish. Would be great as a 6er brew.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle (bottled May 12, 2014) Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, sugar cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Straightforward nose and overly sweet. An unremarkable rendition.

maxwelldeux (4081) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Draught into a growler. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with very little white head on it. Nose is fairly hoppy, with some nice grapefruit and subtle resiny notes coming off of it. Taste is fairly bitter and a little bit sticky, with a subtle residual sweetness on the end. Quite yummy, and I’d drink it again happily.

One of those beers where, not being overwhelmed, I wanted to try more from them. Luckily, Margaret got me another. I love my kids.

Orange with white head. Draft at apex in Portland. Super hoppy. Yumski. Would drink this all day

Zeswaft (1438) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Very hop forward IPA. Almost crotchy b.o. hop aroma and flavor. Finishes fairly smooth and tropical. No alcohol detected.

50belair (2773) - Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Nice tropical fruit hop highlights with dankness of pine and resin hop lowlights . Very well balanced. Good body and mouthfeel. Nice malty backbone. Impressive.

Amber with beige head, nice sharp, biting hops in the aroma and taste. IPAs are a dime a dozen in the NW, but this one is a head of the pack.
