Yes folks I AM rating this beer a 4.8. NEARLY PERFECT. I am going to be bold and say that this beer very well could be this generation’s version of PLINY the ELder. It is THAT big and different. I bought this bottle on a whim, thinking that most other IPAs that feature galaxy hops tend to showcase the hop in a subtle way while blending in other American C-hops. This particular beer though brings forth the Galaxy in a very unapologetic way. Pouring a light copper, slight haze, with an average amount of head, one would never expect the BLAST of galaxy hops form the first sniff. There’s a deep dank-ness about the aroma, the tropical passion-fruit aromas hit you right in the nose-hairs! It is absolutely unapologetically tropical fruit. On a plus note, they did not f this one up by complicating the malt bill. The malt is simple, straightforward, a touch of caramel sweetness and a little bit of biscuit, but not much more. The bittering is incredibly smooth, no harsh cohumolone induced pucker faces or cat pee aromas. It is so smooth that it really just rolls off the tongue and implies a slight alkali-sensation. I wish more people could try this double IPA. This IPA should push brewing to the limits and do what Dogfish head 90 and Pliny the Elder did for the last 10 years. I have a new favorite beer, and it’s an outcast. Captn_Ken (5) - - FEB 16, 2014 does not count
The Outcast has great flavor that lingers long after the first swallow. It hits you with a strong bittery-citrus taste at first and then the floral tropical tones take over. The golden burnt-orange color looks great. For me, it’s higher ABV value makes a great sipping IPA that you can enjoy all night long and the Outcast is my new favorite beer. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2015

Bend’s best Double IPA. Hands down. Tasty, and pair this with food from their pub (Crux Grilled Cheese) and you’ll be in hoppy heaven. madtappers (11) - Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Love the grassy flovor of the galaxy hops in this beer. Bought this just to try a new beer from a new brewery and found a new favorite.

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Looks like a Belgian. Aroma is sweet grass. Flavor is slightly tart, grassy and creamy. Has a very light mouth feel with a slightly bitter and citrusy finish. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2016
50cl bottle pours out with a clear pure deep gold body that supports a near white head. The aroma offers up mango and pineapple and some spicy onion hops with a nice mildly sweet maltiness in the background. The taste delivers juicy mango hops with plenty of spicy bitter onion dank hoppiness creating a tasty balance. To midway it picks up a nice grounding earthy tea sensation that takes this a little deeper and a little yummier. GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2016
500 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled 1/6/2016. Hazy orange with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of big tropical and citrus fruit, floral, pine, onion/garlic. Wonderful fruity aroma. Tastes of big tropical fruit, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, light pine, subtle malt. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel. Very nice. popway (212) - California, USA - APR 13, 2016
Appearance: white froth like a dog foaming at the mouth.
Orange copper color underneath. Aroma is fruity rind of honeydew. They say it is passion fruit. (I like passion fruit and once ordered a case for the holidays.)
Hoppy with a bite balanced by malt
foaminess in the mouthfeel.
