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.

tightslice (1072) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is sweet corn, caramel, mild pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and subdued...maybe this wasnt very fresh, a little too sweet and not nearly enough hop flavor for an Imperial IPA.

JPDIPSO (5795) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Dark copper color. Moderate, but stable light beige head. Floral to citric fresh hops aromas. Hints of toasted malt in the background. Quite citric and malty. Fairly sweet with a mild syrup flavor. Finish is a bit biting and quite long. The longer I wait between quaffs, the more I hesitate. 12/10

madchemist83 (265) - USA - SEP 5, 2016
Sweet caramel, cotton candy, pineapples and pine in aroma. Ruby copper with small head. Medium bitterness with notes of tropical fruit in taste. Pretty decent ipa, something different.

This was a very strong beer it had a nice upfront kick that really was strong but didn't go all the way through the beer to take it over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gorditoabd (635) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber. Minimal head. Aromas of sweet malt, a touch of corn, and hops. Taste is of buttered biscuits, citrus hops, a touch of pine, and a nicely smooth finish. ABV is noticeable only very late in the palate. A nice beer. Not great, but so few are.

teamsale (213) - Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head and good lacing. Smells fruity pineapple and earth. Tastes fruity and tangy, not your standard NW DIPA. Nice level of bitterness and a good fruity aftertaste that lasts the right about of time.

Popoff91 (118) - Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2016
22-ounce bottle in a pint glass. Fairly typical high-alcohol IPA, rather bitter.

Yum. Not my fave IIPA, but gets the job done. ABV not noticeable, which is great if you want go havesies with your best friend.

Shark_Pants (649) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2016
Hazy amber, small beige head. Piney and citrusy aroma with caramel as well. Lots of pine, resin, grapefruit, toasty malt, grassiness from the dry hopping. Medium to full bodied and oily. Not bad, but the heavy use of chinook for bittering gives it excessive harshness.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle from Portland supermarket. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is floral, hoppy, toasty. Taste of hops and fruits and apples. Thin texture.
