Ignition Series #2
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, we’ve blended four different specialty malts to create a distinctive deep amber hue and sweet caramel and roasty flavors.

650ml bottle.. deep copper hue. Nice head leads to good lacing. Head dissipates quickly. From the get-go you can tell this is a west coast beer.. Lots of hops and bitterness balance nicely with 8.5% abv..Sweet carmel and roasted notes lead to pleasant long lasting finish,,a true west coast IPA.

Clear coppery pour with a medium off white head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is citrus, quite hoppy. Taste is also fairly hoppy, pine and citrus but is balanced nicely by some doughy and caramel malts. Mouth feel is great, full and slightly slick.

robinvboyer (3212) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Dark copper, medium off white head. Sticky malt aroma, slight caramels, juicy citrus and pine resin. Full bodied, nice mouth feel, slightly oily, and the carb is nice and soft. The finish is quite bitter, loads of pine resins, and solid sticky citrus peel and zest. A well balanced dipa, good stuff.

Malty DIPA, LCBO acquisition. Similar to the tap sample I had last summer, drinkable but unimpressive. Yes this is how it tastes. Orange with some lace.Orange taste, orange aroma.

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange colour with average-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is bread, caramel, pine, citrus and other fruit. Flavour is quite well-balanced with bready, caramelly and fruity malt character and resiny, slightly citric hops. Slick mouthfeel. Big body. Impressive.
