Well payette brewery is not not on the bottom of my boise brewery lists. That is now that crooked fence is out. This beer should be called their pale ale, and their pale ale an ale. Maybe I have been spoiled by all the other good IPA’s out there, but this one did not make me feel satisfied in the end. Guess Ill be sticking with sockeye and tablerock for the time being.

Can sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Denny. Hazy orange-amber with a white film. Hoppy, some leaves, lemongrass aroma, hoppy, bitter, a little leafy taste. Light body, bitter finish.

Can sample at a tasting at Dror’s place. Thanks Denny. Hazy yellow. Aroma of weedy hops. Flavor of weedy hops, some sweetish malt and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

12 oz can from a six pack bought at Winco, S.Salem
Pours a hazy burnt orange colour with a small yet persistent creamy off white head.
Floral and citrus( pink grapefruit) hop aromas. Brown breadd like malt.
Smooth balanced taste with the hops balanced by strong malting..but they shine through in the end.
Mouth feel is average..if not a tad thin..but not watery.
Nice average PNW style IPA.

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.

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.
