2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet, malty aroma gives way to a surprisingly watery IPA.
Not a big fan of the very sugary notes paired with the very sweet, and I would prefer much more substance all around to an IPA-- needs more hop notes in the aroma, needs a deeper color, needs a more substantial palate.
The flavors themselves are the high point, as there is a brief interesting interplay between tropical flavors, the sugar cube, and the citrus.
But all in all not enough to this to be interesting. Two Brothers often performs better in the maltier offerings, and this is more proof of that.
One caveat: I will try this again on a hot day, when the lighter side of the IPA is more appealing than when in the bite of November.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Light honeyish, sugary malt, mellow piney and tropical hop aroma. Cloudy orange, nice offwhite lace. Biisquit malt, with a sugary top - chewy enough, medium body, mellow to dry mouthfeel. Unobstrusive hop resin finish. Nice.

dark gold pour with a quick white head.
aroma is nice pine, citrus, biscuity malt.
flavour is bready, light caramel sweetness. resinous hop. Bitterness through the middle tapering towards the finish.. some soapiness as well that I find a bit distracting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great nose. Malts with a grassy grapefruit background very reminiscent of 90 min. Very clean precise hops. Malts fall back on the taste Nd rally allow the well balanced citrus and grass intensity to finish with a clean long bitter finish that make me want more. A nice surprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.5 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Retention is good and glass covering lacing is left.
4.0 S: Heavy tropical citrus with earthy hop undertones. Mango and papaya lead the pack with pineapple and orange to follow. Earthiness and flowers give complexity. Clean maltiness underneath that is slightly grainy and slightly bready. Light crystal maltiness.
4.0 T: The taste is much, much, much, much maltier than the nose. I dare say the malts stand out more than the hops. Bready overall with a ton of caramel and a "peachy maltiness." Hops are again mainly of the tropical nature, but they don’t stand out as much. Same fruits though. Low bitterness. Tasty.
4.0 M: Medium to slightly heavier body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess going on here and super smooth.
4.0 D: Solid, malty IPA. Good balance and plenty of flavor.
Serving type: can

Can to pint (thanks jmborggren). Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with sticky off-white head. Smells solid too; hoppy and malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent malty IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Outlaw India Pale Ale has a thick, soapy, off-white head and a clear, orange-gold appearance with some splotchy lacing left around the glass. The aroma is citrus, pine resin, malt, and sugar. The flavor is of hops up front, with bitterness and pine. There is a malt backbone to it and also some sweetness. Mouthfeel is rather light, but it has some ale softness. Outlaw IPA finishes mostly dry and easily drinkable. Overall, this is an excellent beer, and I hope you’re able to sample it. RJT

Fairly clear orange,some debri from yeast,Good inch head leaving lots of lace onto a piraat tulip glass.
Malty bready nose with ripe fruit and some spice.
Taste is same but with carmel,some mineral,a flattish or stale kind of middle taste,maybe slightly watery.Kind of flat in the finish as well but has a rhindy bittering.There is a softness but is somewhat stale/flat also.Pretty decent.This was a over a month past its best by date,so...

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Another of a million bitter IPA. From a bottle has a sweet perfumy fresh cut pine aroma. First taste? What else but big bityter medicine. Look is pale hazy brew with a rocky head that does not fade. Yezzz, long bitter finish too. You want IPA? You got it. As session comes to an end, this beer approaches double imperial ipa status.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can - floral hops aroma. Hints of caramel. A little bit of hop-water syndrome, but there is just enough malt backbone to avoid it. Not a great IPA, but I’d buy a six-pack of it.
