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.

12oz. Btl. nice and frothy head; hints of citrus, lemon and herbs? (nice!). pours amber and lightly hazy. almost perfect taste; if there is such a thing. A wonderful mix of bitterness and sourness that comes together quite nicely on your tongue and mouth. Excellant Beer!

Bottled into a pint glass. I’ll drink this any day over any 60 or 90 overpriced IPA. Very well balanced hops and malt with citrus finish. Plus it’s like a scavenger hunt finding this stuff outside a variety pack this year. Hoppy IPA hunting to all, WOO HOOOO!

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Wonderfully hoppy. Fresh, green hop flavor; creamy, complex texture. Taste is pine, citrus. Reminds me of a Stone. Low carbonation. Finish is reminiscent of a barley wine.

Smells like a fruit basket but tastes better than any apple I ever had. Deep rich flavors. This is the type of beer that makes you happy to be alive.

Honestly wonderful aroma, I could just smell the beer for hours. Flavor is a bit heavy handed, but with the alcohol content as high as it is, it needs it. I waver between just liking this beer a lot and wanting to marry it and have kids together. A serious value for what you get, but needs to be drunk in small quantities or that’s exactly what you’ll end up - drunk.

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. It’s pretty full bodied and foamy. It goes down smooth but leaves the mouth a little trashed. It’s quite bitter and a little sweet with caramel and a hint of star fruit. There’s a resiny bitterness that leans toward juniper and lasts long after the swallow. This is really jam packed with flavor. If you’re ready for a good smack in the mouth, strap in and drink this!

citrus, alcohol, pale, very clear, minimal head, soft carbonation, bitter experience throughout. For an IIPA, has a great amount of taste.

RumRunner101 (732) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours amber with a touch of white head. Sweet mandarin, pineapple, pine, a touch a caramel in the aroma. Nice double IPA. Well balanced, great hop character. Quite fruity overall, with a hint of sweetness on the finish to balance the bitterness and leave you craving more.

Great color on this beer, very rich, great tasting for a 8 percent beer, aroma is citrus, but not a very fruity beer.
