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.

This one was just kind of decent at best. Not a lot going on in the aroma. After it warmed up I got a little bit of grapefruit and pine. Taste was okay. Nothing really that notable. Some hop bitterness, and crackery biscuit malt and that’s about it. I’ve had a few other beers by Pyramid and they were pretty good but this one was just kind of average in my opinion. The name gave me this idea of bit hop bursts. Okay beer.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Dark copper color. Moderate, but stable light beige head. Floral to citric fresh hops aromas. Hints of toasted malt in the background. Quite citric and malty. Fairly sweet with a mild syrup flavor. Finish is a bit biting and quite long. The longer I wait between quaffs, the more I hesitate. 12/10

Sweet caramel, cotton candy, pineapples and pine in aroma. Ruby copper with small head. Medium bitterness with notes of tropical fruit in taste. Pretty decent ipa, something different.

This was a very strong beer it had a nice upfront kick that really was strong but didn't go all the way through the beer to take it over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gorditoabd (635) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber. Minimal head. Aromas of sweet malt, a touch of corn, and hops. Taste is of buttered biscuits, citrus hops, a touch of pine, and a nicely smooth finish. ABV is noticeable only very late in the palate. A nice beer. Not great, but so few are.

teamsale (193) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head and good lacing. Smells fruity pineapple and earth. Tastes fruity and tangy, not your standard NW DIPA. Nice level of bitterness and a good fruity aftertaste that lasts the right about of time.

Yum. Not my fave IIPA, but gets the job done. ABV not noticeable, which is great if you want go havesies with your best friend.

Shark_Pants (612) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2016
Hazy amber, small beige head. Piney and citrusy aroma with caramel as well. Lots of pine, resin, grapefruit, toasty malt, grassiness from the dry hopping. Medium to full bodied and oily. Not bad, but the heavy use of chinook for bittering gives it excessive harshness.
