This beer pours a medium bodied tarnished, dark copper in color with a very soapy two finger, off white head. The nose is light and right in the middle of balanced between hops and malt. It's citrusy but not in a fresh, citrusy hop character kind of way. The flavors echo that sentiment. The flavors are malty with slight hoppiness, yet very citrusy. It drinks more like a citrusy pale than an IPA. It's decent, but not on par for the style. It drinks light and smooth, certainly built for a can. If you needed a beer for the pool, a concert, etc. this wouldn't be a bad option assuming you don't expect a hoppy or dry IPA.

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away and also left lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of citrus and pine resin hops in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has a light to moderate amount of hop bitterness along with some notes of caramel from the underlying malts. Flavors of pine resin stand out towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is relatively easy to drink and isn't too bitter. There seems to be a nice balance between the malts and hops.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by an inch or so of foam; decent retention and a smattering of dots are left behind

Smell: Fruity, with melon and stone fruit tones, as well as some pine

Taste: Biscuity malt backbone with the fruit and pine tones developing in the middle; the combination of the malt and hops produces a rather unusual fruit profile that is almost cantaloupe dominant though there are just enough hops to add piney bitterness that lingers into the finish; rather malty, though

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: With a name like Outlaw IPA I was certainly expecting something different; not bad, but this is way too malt forward for my palate

12 ounce can, a present from Bill Bird of the Green Growler Grocery in Croton on Hudson NY. Best before dating on the bottom of the can...

Pours clear lighter almond amber, off white head, fluffy and loose, leaves a more then ample frothy collar, low sheeting and bands of fine lacing.

Mild nose of some herbal hops and a hint of malt.

Middle of the road IPA, moderate hopping makes this one feel more like a pale ale.

Smooth and easy drinking with notes of mild citrus, pine, and then a malt and smooth finish. Everyday IPA, sessionable, a good IPA for IPA newbs, cuz the hops are not gonna crush your senses...

"Swirl by date of 2/12/15" is about a month past. Nice amber color with a fingernail of of beige head resting on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is a blend of citrus hops and light malt. The flavor is citrus hop forward with a presentable amount of light malt to nearly hold the flavor in balance. The mouth is moderately carbonated,dry,and slightly chalky.

Can (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, mjohnson17!

A very balanced IPA. A bit too much malt character for my personal tastes, but this is certainly a well constructed and very drinkable IPA. The hop flavors are mild citrus with some definite pine character. Caramel and pale malts combine well.

This beer plays nice with others, it's not an Outlaw by any means of the word. It's more of a politician IPA...looks like it has a fresh layer of tan in a can with a copper hued body and frosted off white head. The texture is dimpled just like the cheeks of one of those cheesing politicians louting for your vote. Aroma is caramelized malts with hints of hops coming through the nose, it's the type of Kool-Aid you can get anyone to drink especially when you name it the OUTLAW IPA, look I love two brothers but their German style beers with butterflies although not sounding too tough next to an outlaw has more balls and depth than this beer. When I mention depth I'm talking about credibility these are the Cane and Ebel guys, the Domaine duPage French farm house ale guys, not the Outlaw canned approachable but nervous at a party IPA guys. They brew beer in oak staves, this is just a solid approachable IPA call it Monarch slap a butterfly on the can and label it as a reserved but beautiful drinking IPA that should be drank with pinkies up. Really mouthfeels like I just douched with perfume, lingering watery hop bath, not a real IPA. Sorry guys I love your beer and I will love this beer once it's marketed as a more subtle loveable can offering I will drink that Kool-Aid, rather than an aggressive IPA that it's not.

for being an easy sipping, hop-n-malt bang bang, laced with subtle traces of floral kush. Highly evasive and easily transported across borders and stadium security in crimson 12oz coyote cans. With an innocuous carbonation designed to insidiously carry and distribute the citrus and pine Molotov, this Outlaw should be considered armed and dangerous, mostly due to the penetrating effects of both its malt-bomb attack and devilishly charming drinkability. Consider yourself compromised if you’ve had more than one. Call your posse for backup. Do not confront alone.
