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.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 18, 2013
Hazey amber body with a short but thick crown. Crisp floral hops, citrus, hints of pine, malts? Fuck the malts who needs them. Aroma a touch to mild. Taste is better, resin, pine, flowers, nice ballance. Earth and toast like malts, sweet yet bitter lingering finish. Good brew, lower end IIPA.

cfrancis (2250) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours dark golden with a small white top and good lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine hops. Taste is slightly off balanced with resinous pine hops and caramel malted back.

Bendrixian (1067) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Clear amber/orange colour. Muted notes or resin and hoppy pine cones with a caramel backbone. West coast style with upfront hops, hoppy mid palate and hoppy finish but there is some age on this one that is rather disappointing, not to mention the sterile filtered approach which mutes alot of flavours.

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.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (4) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014 does not count
650ml bottle.. deep copper hue. Nice head leads to good lacing. Head dissipates quickly. From the get-go you can tell this is a west coast beer.. Lots of hops and bitterness balance nicely with 8.5% abv..Sweet carmel and roasted notes lead to pleasant long lasting finish,,a true west coast IPA.

RhetoricalAns (175) - Toronto, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Clear coppery pour with a medium off white head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is citrus, quite hoppy. Taste is also fairly hoppy, pine and citrus but is balanced nicely by some doughy and caramel malts. Mouth feel is great, full and slightly slick.

rob6239 (615) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours clear and light gold with a slight white head that dissipates but laces well. Aroma is medium of dough, alcohol, caramel. Taste is smooth for such a big alcohol content, with a medium bitter linger.

robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Dark copper, medium off white head. Sticky malt aroma, slight caramels, juicy citrus and pine resin. Full bodied, nice mouth feel, slightly oily, and the carb is nice and soft. The finish is quite bitter, loads of pine resins, and solid sticky citrus peel and zest. A well balanced dipa, good stuff.

radiomgb (2200) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Orange-copper in colour with a thin but lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is quite malty, some sweetness, pine, citrus and spice. The flavour is of caramel malts, bready, some oranges. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long with a strong bitterness.

650ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Bomber from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear bright amber with a decent tan head. Aroma: Quite juicy and sweet, lots of rich caramel malts, citrus, tropical fruits, brown sugar, a little dusty, somewhat resinous, a touch peppery, quite nice. Palate: Medium+ body, moderate+ carbonation. Flav.: Quite malt-forward with good hop notes, resinous, pungent citrus, lots of tropical fruits, big caramel and brown sugar malt, nice stuff; lightly sweet with pretty big bitterness and a long, resinous/fruity/citrus/caramel finish.

A great beer and a great deal at only $4.95 a bottle!
