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.

sloth (2647) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Small tan head thats short lived. Miniscule lacing left behind. Clear copper color. Nose is grapefruit, hint of alcohol, light pine and some faint malts. Body is med/full, chewy on thepalate, light resinous notes, acidic. Piney, citrusy hop flavors with a medium sweet maltyness, slightly dank and earthy with chewy maltyness. Kinda messy though. Dry, hoppy finish, big bite and some boozey notes.

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours copper with a thick apricot head and citrus aroma. There is a roasty caramel malt flavor with a thick bitter finish. There is a lot of ingredient in this brew and it is fairly well-balanced.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 9, 2011
12 oz bottle pours a hazy orange with a foamy white head that laces well. Grassy, hoppy aroma with plenty of pine and citrus. Taste has plenty of bitter hop with a grassy, pine and citrus finish. This Imperial IPA is in line with a regular Lagunitas IPA...

Atom (1818) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2011
12oz bottle shared with mattyb83 pours a clear orange/amber with medium khaki head. Aroma is caramel, pine, slight citrus, with a peculiar yet familiar skunk funk. Taste starts out with mellow caramel into pine and citrus and finish with some nice spicy bitterness. Has a few nice things going on here.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle. Pour is light copper in color with a medium sized white head. Smells like weed, pineapple, some bubblegum. Really nice aroma. Taste is piney and pepper like, with very little else going on. Too much of a let down after the nice fruity aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad, but the aroma led me to believe that this was going to be better.

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
I thought that this was good but unremarkable. It has a nice hoppy nose and a good bitter taste, but a relatively flat palate. My personal feeling is that if a DIPA is going to have this body, the palate should be more complex.

jcos (1706) - Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Pours a medium copper, clear. Floral aroma, some hop in the nose. Taste is semi sweet from the hops, malt is not very strong but balanced. Body is medium, soft carbonation, finish is long but not too long. A solid DIPA, well made, nothing super special about it..but would definitely have again.

Butters (3966) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Near clear orange amber with fair ring of offwhite head. Nose is fruity, almost cherry hops, like a fresh american barleywine. Flavor is somewhat like a hoppy imperial red. Fresh floral and resinous hops. Sticky on the palate, with a little alcohol burn in the finish. This was damn good

bhensonb (12585) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2011
Botttle from the Natomas BevMo. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Aromas of citrus rind over mildly roasted malt. Med + body. Flavor is lots of citrus rind - burns like zest, over some pretty roasty malt. There’s a lot of flavor here. It even seems there’s a little florality now and then. Pretty good stuff, tho perhaps with a bit too much sugar. Eh. Chacun à son goût

jandd1983 (3192) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 28, 2011
It poured a golden color with a medium off-white head. The aroma was of grass, apricot, and pineapple. The flavor was of pineapple, light pine, and grapefruit. A decent seasonal ale.
