COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bif (1295) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a clear dark copper color, with a moderate head and nice clingy lacing. Aroma pine and some grapefruit with malt sweetness and a bit of fruit in the background. The taste is a mix of grapefruit and bit of pine with some caramel sweetness and bit of fruit. Has a nice bitterness a bit tart and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and quite refreshing. Nice beer for the style without being a hop bomb.

DTM (780) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle from Raleys in Vacaville CA. Pours a hazy gold color and smells of citrus fruit. Very bitter and hoppy with the taste of once again citrus. A little unbalanced on the palate knocked it down a bit. Still a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This brew is a slightly hazy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with some citrus and malt behind it. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at Beer Revolution, 8.5%. Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is mild grapefruit, tangerine, mild floral aroma.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, really resinous and sticky in the finish.

stantheman (565) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. Served in a large snifter. A pale orange generous and aromatic head. Dark amber orange in color, with orange citrus on the nose. Hops very noticeable up front, with a surprisingly large caramel malt component also in the forefront. Not your ultimate bitter bomb, but nicely balanced, with more malt component than most of the modern west coast IPAs. A nice glass of suds!

On tap at the brewery. A: Reddish copper color with a 1/2" off white head. N: Dense pine and earth rounded off by pineapple. T: Moderately bitter and moderately sweet. Pine and earth are here. Nothing mind-blowing, but definitely solid. M: Decently resinous with a dry, scraping mouthfeel. O: I thought this was going to be underwhelming, but it’s really solid stuff. Not complex but clean.

rubbishystuff (1756) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Thanks to iNBe. A rather thirst quenching DIPA. OK, it was hot and I should have chosen a different beer but it was the only one cold and I probably drank the first half of the bottle too quickly. So it was grapefruity too. Rather good, but the serious hop heads will find it a bit mild. I liked it though. Serving: bottle
