3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly bitter, but not terrible and grapefruit with a big resin forward. Not a bad IPA for sure, but not one I’m going to run out to find either. A great IPA to provide at large gatherings, medium bodied and well carbed. Kind of a long finish with a biting bitter end, but still, not too bad at all.

Canned from Winco. 6.2%. Hazy orange with a bit of golden highlights. Hoppy citric nose with a bit of sweetness. Hoppy up front with a touch sweetness. Decent bitterness and a decent malt backbone. A hint of breadiness. Decent sipping IPA.

Bunches of Outlaw tonight... Surprising to see the reach of Payette. The only IPA at my work party at the Grove and the only IPA at Pengilly’s.. That said, this is a bonafide Boise staple anymore... Decent enough IPA for the geeks.
Pours a light amber with a good head... slightly pithy citrus with lesser piney hops... good drinkability and light pale malt with clean yeastiness.. not the best IPA in the world but no slouch. Given all the GREAT IPA’s in the PNW, this is average... But now flaws either.

Light amber color with a sticky off white head. Orange peel and some pine in the nose. Caramel sweetness with lots of orange peel, tangerine and red grapefruit zest flavors. Sharp, hoppy beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Legends Pub, Boise. Golden orange pour with a finger of creamy off-white head. Great lacing. Served a bit too cold, but light floral and citrus notes make their way through. More citrus and pine in the taste, lightly malty. Some indication of the higher IBUs and ABV, but overall a pretty approachable ‘higher octane’ IPA.

Meh. Not hoppy enough to satisfy any hop craving I may be having. Too malty with a little o that cardboard flavor and nose that comes with age. Spicy and bitter with little nose, good or bad. Not a fan.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Brewforia. Pours lightly coppered gold with a white head. Aroma is rather evergreen with mild caramel backdrop. Med body. Flavor is very lush. The caramel is forward and a trifle roasty. The pine is clearly present. There’s other hop, but I can’t pick them out individually. The mouthfeel is fairly lush; the flavor is fairly strong, tho not very harsh; the finish is nicely fruity and bitter. Solid ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can courtesy of Lectvay, thanks man! Dark amber/copper pour with an off white head. Aromas of big pine hops with some earthy notes. Flavor is pine, pine, pine. Not a whole lot of maltiness to speak of, this one is all about the hops. Not bad though.
