3.79/5  rDev +4.7%
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

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

Poured a rich, slightly cloudy amber body with a thin cap of head. It looks very much like most other IPAs, pleasing but not amazing. Scents of orange flesh, sweet malt, very light levels of pine resin and hints of tropical fruit. Overall impression of aroma is of a very light and sweet aroma for an IPA. Not unpleasant, but lacking a full aroma profile that is key to the style. Flavor begins lightly bitter with notes of orange zest and a pleasantly sweet malt backbone and a light level of pine resin. This moves into a medium bitter middle with pine resin, orange zest and some spicy hop flavors with a lot caramel malt backbone. Finish is medium bitter with notes of pine resin, orange zest, light orange flesh and a caramel malt backbone. Aftertaste is medium bitter with notes of pine resin, caramel, and light indeterminate citrus peel. Overall impression of flavor is of a decent IPA flavor profile that is pleasant, but lacks the complexity of some other examples. It is simple and nice, but a bit standard. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with light carbonation and a smooth, slick, slightly resinous feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is very nice. A true to form IPA. Overall this is a fairly standard IPA. It doesn't do much to stand out in any way, but it is pleasant and rather well executed, if a bit simple. Good overall, but in a crowded IPA market it does little to stand out.
