Dark golden color. Doesn't seem too carbonated. Fresh hop aroma balanced with a good amount of malt flavor. Slight bitterness in the finish, also somewhat dry.

Never had a Pyramid beer before, they just started distributing to NY. Pours a clear light amber with a rocky, frothy, 2 finger eggshell head. Notes of caramel, citrus and some pine in the nose. Taste is salty hops, sweat, pine, some citrus. This is more of an east coast IPA than a west coast citrus bomb that I was hoping for. Still, it is quite dry and I like that. I might give it a bonus point for not having obscene amounts of residual sugar that a lot of shit IPA’s have. Dry is good, hmmkay? However, there’s not much else to write home about here, except it’s price point. I think it was $8.99 a 6er, so that’s pretty decent. Probably wouldn’t buy again. Meh.

Hazy amber pour. The nose is quite light and spicy. A lot of clean orange peel and a touch of some soft fruit as well. Lean but could still be leaner. A decent balance of hop and malt. Spicy/fruity with a moderately assertive bitterness. It’s pretty good. evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Purchased from the Nofo Muni. Pours a light amber, clear. Not a whole lot of head. Smell is pine, straight up. Taste, once again is a full on pinesol pine-assault on my senses. It’s not super sticky on the tastebuds. The flavor isn’t at all complex, but for someone who likes pine in their IPA, it’s a solid hop-forward beer. SSSteve (4006) - - JUN 14, 2012
bottle. hazy orange with lots of lively carbonation bubbles and a stable, fluffy, white head. mandarin orange syrup nose. the palate is very smooth considering the abv and the bitterness of the style. the flavor is sweet and orangy with no sign of 8.5%. a typical ipa hop mixture i see. not a super malty or super hoppy 2ipa but has good balance. no surprises, but it’s an above average beer from pyramid and in general for the style IMO.

On tap @ Pig ’n Whistle. Pours dark amber, aroma is sweet malt and a hint of hops. Flavor is tart piney hops that quickly fade to thick, chewy caramel malts. A big beer, no doubt, but closer to an Imperial red than a DIPA. I think Pyramid did one a couple years ago... I know there are a ton of hops in here, but they don’t really shine. Still good, and you can usually find it in 6 packs at the grocery store for a nice price. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2012
A - Pours a fairly clear copper-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, and citrus hops with some sweet caramel malts and a bit of pine hop.
T - Starts off with some grapefruit and other tropical and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some lightly bready malts come through with some pine hops and some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of tropical and pine hops with some bitterness and a bit of sweet malts.
M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Good DIPA with a nice hop profile and pretty good balance. dwm1034 (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours bright orange with thin white head...And mild hop nose. Interesting blend of hops and malts...Citris and some floral notes...a little too malty for me in an IPA but still tasty BVery (10328) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle. Bright orange pour with a nice white head. Good looking beer. Aroma and taste are hoppy - resin on the aroma, resin and some citrus on taste. Some caramel malts in there too. One of the best I’ve had from Pyramid. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2012
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!
