Pours a bright light catching brew with a full 3 finger whipped cream head. Dissipates as expected but leaves a nice reserve of lacing. Don't really expect this from an IPA, Usually this would come from a more Saison like brew.. Regardless makes me think this beer has been well crafted.
Aroma is complex but restrained, No big scents, but many subtle scents weaving together with melon, bitterness, citrus.
Taste is equally restrained with the excellent Galaxy hops. Wonderfully balanced. Full with fruit and a bit of woodiness.
Mouth feel is light but soft. Carbonation is soft/medium. More like a draft than a bottle. Very drinkable.
Side note: Have matched beer with a 3 year old XXX N.Y. Cheddar, and the flavors of the beer just explode out with food.
OK...understand that this is more than the beer...but I think it's just important to say that this beer is really good, but exceptionally good with a bit salinity and cream you'd get with a good stand up cheese.
Highly recommended.

500mL into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy straw color w/ a bright white head of foam.

Aroma is citrusy and tropical: pineapple, grapefruit, and clean pale malt.

Taste follows nose. Clean dry-hopped goodness on a canvas of neutral pale malt that lends just a touch of sweetness. Hop bitterness is there but it's kept in check. Highly drinkable.

Mouthfeel is balanced and crisp, finishes semi-dry.

Overall a rock-solid example of an American IPA, really enjoyable.

Bottle served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Outcast is a pale golden orange color with unusually good clarity for an imperial IPA. The head is thick at first but settles fairly fast leaving a little lace behind.

Aroma is fresh and full of bright citrus notes. Very hoppy but not overpowering.

Flavor is brilliantly hoppy with many layers and complexities. Citrus is most prevalent but there is also grassy, floral, and spice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Beautifully balanced and expertly made.

Overall a wonderful double IPA and certainly worth seeking out. I'd love to try some of Crux's other beers. Their labels are excellent too.
