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

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark orange with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter. Citrus and grapefruit. Medium bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. I would gladly drink this again.

Smells like freshly cut grapefruit, wow, a pit of maltiness too. Clear and amber with a fine layer of head that remains. Very nicely balance with hops and malt in check throughout. A bit dry for an IIPA, but nice.

Pretty well made double IPA, fairly balanced, plenty of bitterness, bit of crystal, toast, balanced fruit and pine, a bit chalky though.

A clear ruby body with minimal head. This is a sweet caramel double ipa with a dry grassy and piney hop note. Medium bodied with a slight soap aftertaste. Remnants of the high abv well after the sip. Good but unspectacular.

I typically complain about IPA, but an Imperial IPA is a bit of an exception. This one packs a punch. Like John Cougar said, "It hurts so good".

Pours a dark orangish amber..Piney and grapefruit with a little sweetness in aroma. The flavor is caramel malts, citrus, tartness, and a little bitterness in the finish. Overall, a decent imperial IPA.

12 oz bottle thanks to Jimmy. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Nice citrus nose but a bit mild. Flavors of citrus and bitter hops. Some decent malt profile for balance. Bitterness on the end. Alcohol is present but not over the top. Decent IIPA.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Great typical NW citrus bomb. Nice malt background. I do like my double ipas to be super bitter, which this is lacking. However, the dry hop gives it a nice aroma. Good ipa (not iipa).

Sweet citrus aromas. Also sweet citrus flavors. Overall a very good imperial IPA.

Bottle. Orange amber with a small white head. Nose is floral and resinous, citrus. Not bursting with complexity, but simple, fresh, and relatively (and surprisingly clean). Flavor is more grapefruit, a bit hefty and flabby, sharp bitterness. A step in the right direction for Pyramid.
