ok now we're talking here

my sample poured nice hazy amber color right into my glass once again head disappated quickly but this time nice lacing left behind

aroma just fantastic real heavy graprefruit and pine aroma also some nice fresh cut grass aroma kind of a fresh meadow in there real heavy citrus mmm good this makes me thirsty

good taste too really on the border or cusp of being an excellent beer tons of potential here heavy nice bitterness with really nice sweet underbelly of malt i like this a lot

overall mouthfeel pretty good nice quite as tart and refreshing but almost there maybe a touch more of the carbonation and tightly packed bubbles

overall a solid beer the best one i have had yet from these guys

3.46/5  rDev -12.8%

A - Orange pour with a hearty beige foam. Plenty of sticky lacing on the pint glass. Cloudy look to the beer.

S - Pungent smell of hop resin. There are some spicy notes of pine and Christmas spice.

T - Flavors of light grains and spice finishes with a hearty bittering from a tar-like blast of hops. This beer shows how a high IBU on a standard IPA can be extremely bitter. A bit much for me actually.

M - Medium bodied beer with minimal carbonation. Finishing with a strong bitter bite makes this a beer only hop heads would go for a second.

O - Not bad, but it takes more than a one trick pony get me excited. For those who enjoy the lingering bitter taste in their mouth this is a decent beer.

Thanks Brian for bringing this to share.
Review from written notes.

Into a small tulip glass it pours a saturated tropical sunset orange. A thin layer of white foam rests on top, leaving some spotty lace as it's sipped. Eventually the head recedes to a wispy skim.

Pungent leafy hop resin aroma.

Big grapefruit notes right off the bat, juicy and fresh. Lots of citrus with a mild hop bitterness. Slightly sweet with a balanced pale malt backbone. Green resiny hop bitterness builds after each sip. Light bodied and quite sessionable. The fresh, lush citrus flavor is the real standout feature of Outrage.
Glad I got to try this one, really enjoyed it!

On tap at Crossroads Brewing Company in Athens, NY.

Pours a clear amber, with a half inch head, and ample lacing.

Smells like pine resin, lemon, grapefruit- lots of grapefruit.

This is a really hoppy IPA, 80 IBUs or so. Tons of juicy fresh grapefruit flavor, some lemon and orange flavors, intense pine flavors, practically a pine needle flavor. A big blast- but a big tasty blast. There is not much malt flavor at all.

This one has a medium body, with a crisp and biting mouthfeel. Really, really drinkable.

One of the best IPAs I've had made in this state, excellent stuff.

32oz (half) growler from Oliver's in Albany. Pretty excited to try this IPA from just a little bit south of here.

Quite amber in color. Small head, minimal lacing.

Sweet pine flavors on the nose.

Taste is of pine and some citrus hop flavors, with a sweet, but not too sweet, malt backbone. Hops hit quick in flavor and it finishes dry and a bit malty.

Mouthfeel is medium, nothing unusual here.

A very decent East Coast IPA here. Always happy to see more upstate NY beers.

On tap at Press 195 (Park Slope, Brooklyn)

Appearance: Clear Amber, with a hazy white head. Light lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy and Floral sweetness

Taste: Initially sweet up front. Turns to a pleasant grapefruit bitterness that hangs around for a while. The finishing taste is similar to orange peel.

Overall I really liked this this beer. I specifically went to Press 195 to have a pint. It's a really drinkable ipa and coming in at 7% that makes this a bit dangerous.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are strong aromas of citrus and pine resin hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has a strong mélange of hoppy flavors but at the same time is well balanced with notes of caramel malts. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and goes down very smoothly. There’s a good amount of hop flavors but it also shares some similarities with the maltiness of an amber/red ale.

4.33/5  rDev +9.1%

Poured from tap into pint glass at Terrapin in Rhinebeck, NY.
Pours a hazy-ish golden color. Nice head with great lacing.
Smells of fruity piney hops...really nice.
Taste is of fruity, piney, cotton candy hops. Mild in the hops bite, but full in flavor. I have wanted to try this for a while, and it was fantastic. Great east coast IPA - full of fruity flavor with just the correct amount of bite. Worth every sip of this brew. Fantastic.

A: Nice copper color with amber highlights. Quarter inch head and some lacing on my pint glass.

S: Biscuit sweet bread, grapefruit/lemon citrus, crisp malt

T: Bitter green hops, some caramel malt complexity

M: Medium body, good carb

st: growler

overall: A very nice IPA, but a little too bitter for me. Reminds me of Green Flash West Coast IPA. I would fill my growler up with this again. I prefer the Black Rock Stout from X-Roads.

Sampled at the tasting room which is running now. Then took home a growler and polished it away last night. Sweet Nectar IPA in the Cap to Hudson Valley region.

Extraordinarily quaffable and fruity IPA with a huge flowery nose and tons of tropical and citrus fruit. The beer gets a nice 1.5 inch foam stand with nice lacing. It is bright golden to light orange in color with great clarity. The beer has a fantastic balance of hop punch and malt backbone with a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. At 7% abv it is very drinkable and frankly hard to keep out of the glass. Smooth and medium light in body with a tremendous harmony of hop flavors.

Frequent growler fills will be required.

Here is a recent review I wrote on draft:

I had a bunch of these when it was on tap at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. This was one of the better IPA's (particularly new IPA's) that I've had for a long time. Very in your face hoppiness but well balanced as well.

Pale/Orange color. Good carbonation that sticks around for a while and leaves a bit of lacing.

Aroma is citus/pine and very strong.

Flavor as well was so great. Perfect amount of bitterness but very well balanced at the same time.

Highly recommend if you can find it.

---

I would say the cask is at least as good as the draft. Maybe better. Great brewery.

3.03/5  rDev -23.7%

On tap at the source.

Standard appearance, slightly hazy orange-amber color, with a small cap of foamy white head; good retention and lacing. Decently hoppy aroma, herbal with notes of citrus pith and dry grass. Bitter hoppiness in the taste, drying, herbal, earthy, some tiny citrus notes, and dry malts with a sugary sweetness in the finish. Light-medium body, moderate carb, decently crisp, but a little stale overall. Not too bad, but nothing great.
