Outburst Imperial IPA is a high-impact workout for the senses. A crafty combination of four different hops, and a dose of dry hopping, powers Outburst to 80 IBU strong. Its bold profile offers an aroma reminiscent of the Northwest hop fields at harvest time, along with spicy overtones of fresh citrus. Seeking a harmonious balance to the hop overload, weíve blended four different specialty malts to create a distinctive deep amber hue and sweet caramel and roasty flavors.

Pours bright orange with thin white head...And mild hop nose. Interesting blend of hops and malts...Citris and some floral notes...a little too malty for me in an IPA but still tasty

Bottle. Bright orange pour with a nice white head. Good looking beer. Aroma and taste are hoppy - resin on the aroma, resin and some citrus on taste. Some caramel malts in there too. One of the best Iíve had from Pyramid.

Pyramid Outburst Imperial IPA is a clear, dense, light copper ale with a dense, creamy sand colored head that has excellent retention and lacing. It has a hoppy aroma with notes of grass, flowers, tropical fruit and bubble gum. Itís pretty full bodied and foamy. It goes down smooth but leaves the mouth a little trashed. Itís quite bitter and a little sweet with caramel and a hint of star fruit. Thereís a resiny bitterness that leans toward juniper and lasts long after the swallow. This is really jam packed with flavor. If youíre ready for a good smack in the mouth, strap in and drink this!

12oz bottle pours clear copper with thin gold edges and thin near white head. The aroma has grapefruit, pine hops and a sticky sweet maltiness leading into a bit of mango like tropical fruity notes. The taste begins with sweet thick sugar malts flowing quickly into grapefruit, mango and pine hop bitterness as well as snippets of citrus hop flavor. An interesting take on the style as I get little flavor hops, lots of bitter hops and muddled thick sweet sugary maltiness.

Wittales (761) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy diminishing off white head, lacing throughout. Aromas where sweet caramel malt, the spicy fruity citrusy hops of lemon, grapefruit, orange, and fig. Yumm, no alcohol present. Taste was sweet meaty malty backbone then mild resinous hops of orange and lemon. Palate was velvety creamy carbonation with a balanced body. A fruity malty slightly caulky long finish. If finish wasnít caulky...

Poured from 12oz bottle into a snifter. Dark amber with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is caramel malt, resinous and citrusy hops with some pine notes as well. Flavor is caramel malt with sweet resinous citrusy hops. Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall a nice IIPA that is not overly bitter, and certainly one of the better offerings Iíve had from Pyramid.

Smells like freshly cut grapefruit, wow, a pit of maltiness too. Clear and amber with a fine layer of head that remains. Very nicely balance with hops and malt in check throughout. A bit dry for an IIPA, but nice.
