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.

Yes folks I AM rating this beer a 4.8. NEARLY PERFECT. I am going to be bold and say that this beer very well could be this generation’s version of PLINY the ELder. It is THAT big and different. I bought this bottle on a whim, thinking that most other IPAs that feature galaxy hops tend to showcase the hop in a subtle way while blending in other American C-hops. This particular beer though brings forth the Galaxy in a very unapologetic way. Pouring a light copper, slight haze, with an average amount of head, one would never expect the BLAST of galaxy hops form the first sniff. There’s a deep dank-ness about the aroma, the tropical passion-fruit aromas hit you right in the nose-hairs! It is absolutely unapologetically tropical fruit. On a plus note, they did not f this one up by complicating the malt bill. The malt is simple, straightforward, a touch of caramel sweetness and a little bit of biscuit, but not much more. The bittering is incredibly smooth, no harsh cohumolone induced pucker faces or cat pee aromas. It is so smooth that it really just rolls off the tongue and implies a slight alkali-sensation. I wish more people could try this double IPA. This IPA should push brewing to the limits and do what Dogfish head 90 and Pliny the Elder did for the last 10 years. I have a new favorite beer, and it’s an outcast.

The Outcast has great flavor that lingers long after the first swallow. It hits you with a strong bittery-citrus taste at first and then the floral tropical tones take over. The golden burnt-orange color looks great. For me, it’s higher ABV value makes a great sipping IPA that you can enjoy all night long and the Outcast is my new favorite beer.

Bend’s best Double IPA. Hands down. Tasty, and pair this with food from their pub (Crux Grilled Cheese) and you’ll be in hoppy heaven.

Love the grassy flovor of the galaxy hops in this beer. Bought this just to try a new beer from a new brewery and found a new favorite.

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.

maxwelldeux (3948) - Everett, 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.

Salmoniform (1135) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with white head that dissipated quickly to a thin ring. Aroma is tangerine, melon, pine, sugar, orange, coriander. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and good carbonation. Taste is initially sweet with a bitter following and a sweetness through the finish. Overall, this is a really nice sweeter IPA.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a hazy, translucent bright golden-orange with a half inch of off-white head that quickly recedes to the edges of the glass. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, sweet melon. Flavor is dominated by hops: bitter, resinous, citrus, with a lasting floral, bitter finish. Somewhat light-bodied for the ABV. Delicious and very drinkable, although the bitterness starts to take over after several sips.
