12 ounce poured into pint glass.

A: white frothy head, retention is decent fading to a thin white film. Amber with a very subtle touch of red.

S: Citrus pumpkin carmel strange but not bad

T: Hop forward with a mellow hop finish. Not very dynamic when cold. I let the second half warm a little and some spices and malt came out finishing with a pleasant lasting pine hop finish

M: typical for an ipa but I didn't get to enjoy the full flavor until it was nearly flat.

O: glad I let it warm decent ipa par for the course

Serving type: can

Just noticed the best before date of 2/13/13. I'm starting to think the selection for a mix-six is all expired beers that the store is trying to get rid of.

Appearance: Pale honey hue with visible effervescence and decent clarity. Frothy one finger off-white head.

Aroma: Grain and citrus bitterness.

Taste: Clean and intense bitterness throughout without any real hop flavor. A malt bill of caramel, a touch of amber, and a bit of peppery biscuit flavor. Sort of an average for the style. Not much of a 'wow' factor but also no off-flavors. There is a nice crispness to the finish and a dry factor that leads to a lightly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body but feels lighter at times. Average carbonation and easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Outlaw IPA is a pretty middle of the road IPA. At 6.3% it's just above sessionable range but there is definitely enough malt and hops to keep the palate interesting. Would I drink it again? Yes, if fresh.

Pours a lively orange/copper with a thick and fluffy head more orange than any I've ever seen before. Settles nicely into the glass leaving an ample amount of lacing clinging to the glass. Nice clarity.
Smells of pine sap, grapefruit pith, sweet malty grains and light touches of pineapple and caramel. Not amazing depth or even anything that really stands out, but for a regular IPA, it's very nice.
Tastesjust like the nose hints at. Nicely piney, fresh cut citrus, splashes of caramel, mango, fresh cut grass and sweet malt grains.
Really nice blend of citrus, grassy pine and grainy sweetness. Nothing really special but very nicely done.
If you're looking for yet another over the top IPA, this isn't it. What it is a fantastic drinking IPA with nice balance and depth. An awesome cookout brew at a touch over 6%.
