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, weíve blended four different specialty malts to create a distinctive deep amber hue and sweet caramel and roasty flavors.

arondee (598) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops and caramel malts. The taste is a little piney with orange peel and a decent hop bitterness. The carbonation is very good and it leaves a nice bitter aftertaste. I had little to no expectations for this beer because I donít think of Pyramid as a great craft brewery but I was pleasantly surprised.

TattooJack (241) - Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2015
From the 6-pack of bottles, nice orange with a white collar. Good hop flavor with a little fruit, good bitter happy ending. Nice 8.5% content, not really noticeable except in the warm buzz. Was on sale for $5.99 which makes it a total score.

rosenbergh (8266) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
22 oz bottle. From a gas station in Bend, OR.
Clear deep amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. Resiny hops, sweetness and some caramel malt in a fresh aroma. The flavour is resiny and fruity hops, bread, cookies, sweet malt and some tea like bitterness. Balanced.

16oz draft at the brewery. Pours red brown witha sticky white head. Carmel, sticky hops make up the aroma. Dry on the palate.

Draft pour, and bottle poured probably a couple dozen times over the years. Canít believe I havenít rated this. Pours a copper color with a foamy head. Hoppy grainy aroma. Flavor is bitter, with some sweet hops mixed in. Finishes on another more bitter note. Always been a bit of a go to imperial for me. What can I say. Itís cheap, strong, and tasty. Iíll keep getting this.

22 oz bottle pours gold and clear with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet and very hoppy. Grassy, herbal, citrus and pine hop flavor. Good sweet malt backbone. A little caramel hint in the flavor. Altogether a very smooth and enjoyable IIPA.

S_Side_Smitty (571) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is dank and syrupy. Taste is very much the same as aroma. Heavy bitterness kicks in for the mid the quickly fades for an empty finish. Kinda like a dog that barks then runs when confronted.
